Mt. Vernon Middle School Reviews

Very unsafe and chaotic. Budget seems to be spent in all the wrong places, instead of maintaining basic facilities for students such as restrooms, locker rooms, and hallways. The administration can create a new gym and title it as the "Field House," and create a brand new cafeteria entitled the "International Cafe" simply by just hanging flags around the walls, but will not put a door to the boys' restroom stalls located in the ONE AND ONLY boys' locker room in the building.

These sort of issues can be found throughout both the middle school and high school. Very disappointing, and that's coming from a member of the Staff.

I loved how the teachers supported you in all of your decisions. I loved how much you could trust all of the teachers and how much they willingly helped you with any problems you had. I also loved how the teachers always let you know when you did something good or when they were proud of you. The staff there were just amazing people all around. When I went to this school I had just recently moved to Fortville and all of the staff and the majority of the students were very welcoming. Unfortunately, there weren't very many opportunities to get involved in very many extracurricular activities and the few that they did offer weren't very pleasurable. I would like to see that change. One other thing that was very distasteful was that the school was falling apart at its seams. It was very run down and not very up to date. My younger sister is in 7th grade there and I have noticed that they are doing lots of renovations and have greatly improved the building's structure inside and out.
