    "There are a ton of clubs, but the academic side isn't really all that widespread. For instance, within my four years, we've reduced our foreign language programs from two, French and Spanish, to a sole Spanish program. The teachers and some administrators are great. New facility, and soon to be a new superintendent after the entire community rallied for the firing of our previous one."

    "Mount Vernon High School was overall a good experience for me. I had a lot of fun getting involved in different clubs throughout my years there. The only downfall is the new building. It isn't finished, too small, and overall not suitable for the amount of students."

    "I love my high school. I have had such a great experience there. The people are great and the staff are great. The only bad thing that I have experienced are a few teachers who are there to make money. They don't really like to teach, which sucks, because teaching is the best profession on the planet and they should be grateful. That is only a few teachers there. Most of the teachers are fantastic educators and genuinely care about their students."

    "I do like the school and the experiences I had however, One thing that held me back at this school was the fact there was a major discipline issue. Not all students were punished equally for wrongdoings. Also, when someone was in the wrong, they may not always be disicplined."

    "Teachers at MV High School operate on a low-paying grade scale. Their departments are underfunded and they are expected to do many things. I would describe the majority of my teachers as spread too thin."
