    Mount Vernon High School is a very diverse yet academically rich institution. The opportunities for all students to pursue post secondary opportunities is the best we as parents could ever ask for. They have a proven track record with many students attending prestigious four year universities throughout the country. We couldn't ask for a better school in our community for our kids. The teaching staff is very accommodating, consistent and caring. My child has had a wonderful experience here! We are proud to be Bulldogs!

    Mount Vernon does a great job preparing the students who choose to go to college for the challenges ahead. I am amazed at the number of AP classes offered. The music programs are outstanding. High School is what each student chooses to make of it but MVHS gives their students every opportunity possible.

    As a school, I'm really pleased with it. Some of the students have issues, like not really caring about academics, but the school itself is good. The teachers listen and actually care, and are good at what they do. Our art/music programs are great, though they could really use some more funding considering how much they've grown. Academically speaking our classes are fairly challenging, though sometimes it's hard to find the mid-ground between too hard and ridiculously easy, but that's just high school for you. We've got a great AP program as well, and we're a national AVID demonstration school. There are rough patches, but you find those in all schools, so really I think MVHS is pretty decent as far as that goes.

    Mount Vernon High School is doing a good job with diverse and complex demographics. Teachers in Mount Vernon are highly committed to the success of all students whether they are coming to us with educational deficits or are highly capable. Mount Vernon has one of the strongest AP programs in this area of the state (10 AP courses with more coming) and we are drawing students from outside the district because of our high end college preparation course offerings. Our students are drawing high amounts of scholarships from our local community college to Harvard. At the same time we are developing and implementing programs to improve the success of a substantial population of students who are struggling with poverty and English language acquisition. It is easy to have high average standardized test scores when a district has higher and relatively homogeneous overall socioeconomic status. MVHS is much more than one number.

    This school is great. The faculty and other students here have definitley shaped me into the person I am today. This school has helped prepare me for bigger and better things in my future. I don't think i would want to go anywhere else.

    The worst school I've ever gone to. The math is horrible- who does Integrated math? it was all over the place, not giving us time to learn the basics. Only one decent history teacher, Mr. Negley. The arts departments are lacking, the sports teams absymal, english was the only decent class and even in that, the teachers lacked the imagination to keep anyone's attention.

    The majority of teachers I have been in contact with are caring and concerned. The school is old and falling apart in places. However, it is currently undergoing a remodel. Unfortunately, the district has chosen to begin with the athletic fields rather than the classrooms. There are numerous extracurricular activities and clubs.
