    "What makes Mount Vernon High Schoool unique is that it's a melting pot. Children from all over the world attend Mount Vernon High school. There are kids from Africa , kids from India , Japan , El Salvador any place you name there's a child from there in Mount Vernon. Military family's are stationed to the near by Army base Fort Belvoir so, many military children attend Mount Vernon coming from all over the world. I would definitely do my high school career over at Mount Vernon high school. The environment at Mount Vernon High School is lively , exciting and friendly. One of the greatest moments I had at Mount Vernon is when I came to school on the first day and I walked into the cafeteria. There seemed to be hundred of students in the cafeteria. I've never seen a school with so many people in my life so all these people in this tiny place gave me instant anxiety. I made the quickest dash to the first exit I saw. When I was getting ready to bolt out the doors I was stopped by security. He told me I wasn't suppose to leave yet but I told him I had to go to the bathroom. He stood up and he was a good 6'0 tall and said " there's already 4 girls out you should just wait here." At this point I felt as if everyone was starring at me so as I looked up at him the tears started to stream. I felt my whole body heating up and I was just bawling. I couldn't wait any longer I bolted past the security guard and left the cafeteria. I could finally breath again, but I knew I was in trouble because the security guard followed me. I told him I was new and this was just all too much for me. He told me everything was going to be ok and showed to the bathroom and let me get all freshened up. Then while In the bathroom I was approached by this girl. She was making sure I was ok , and she ended up being my first friend at Mount Vernon High School"

    "The overall school and spirit at Mount Vernon is amazing. The hype squad and energy is remarkable because the school does not have the best reputation, but we continue to change the minds of others and show what Mount Vernon is really about"

    "The teachers at Mount Vernon High school are great. They provide students with the best education possible. They are very supportive and they have great communication skills. I never been to a school where the teachers care so much about their students. You can tell that the teachers want the best for their students. Teachers will actually teach you life lessons along with your work assignment because they want to see their students succeed in every aspect of life. I think since coming to Mount Vernon High School I have learned so much that I have a strong grasp on life and I'm prepared to go to college."

    "The teachers at the school are great. As always they are helpful and cooperative; however there are a lot of teachers that make it seem as if they do not care along with the fact they give off an unapproachable vibe."
