I have absolutely loved my time as a Mt. Vernon Mountaineer! The staff is incredible and you can really tell that they care about you as a student and a person, not just your grades. I wouldn't trade the last four years for the world and am very thankful for how much I've been prepared to continue my education at the college level.

Mt Vernon is a very familial school. The teachers know you personally and the small class sizes provide many opportunities for one-on-one guidance. However, fewer students also means fewer classes so you won't find particularly diverse or many upper level, AP classes. Club involvement is about average with the exception of an incredibly active and successful FFA chapter.
I love the staff and our principal. They all seem to care for the students as if we are their own child. Most of the people at our school are friendly and if you need someone to talk to someone is always there. Something I would like to see change is in the way we get taught. Most of the teachers I have had just give us work with little explanation, or they go through the lesson too fast.
