Mt. Vernon High School Reviews
I absolutely love how small our town is! Places like Mount Vernon are so personable and care so much about their students. Classes are engaging and enlightening, and there is so much encouragement to explore our creativity in the classroom. Education as well as extracurricular activities are so valued here, and I feel as though I am receiving the best education a small and loving town can possibly give.
The fact that the athletic administration succeeded very well in everything while I was in High School and how supportive everyone was during all of it. I had the chance to go to two state championships in basketball one of which we won state. The support throughout it all was great and it made us look like a fun, supportive school. Throughout everything all of my teachers were supportive with helping us succeed and it helped positively shape the people around me, including me. Overall, I've been very blessed with all of the opportunities Mount Vernon has blessed with many different things including extracurricular activities, the teachers, and more. They have all shaped me and helped prepare me for the successful future I plan on having.
I went to Mount Vernon ever since kindergarten. I’ve had so many memories. Most of my memories come from high school. I’ve been involved with activities such as Leaders of Tomorrow, tennis, yearbook staff, National Honors Society, and academic UIL. The extracurricular activity that I enjoyed the most was academic UIL. I participated in UIL every year in high school and won a grand total of 90 medals over my whole high school career. I also went to State two years in a row. I was very dedicated to UIL. It was my passion. I’m sad that I’m leaving this special activity, but I’m ready for new and bigger competitions.
