Great dual immersion school! Teachers, staff & Principal make a great team and I have seen so much improvement since Mr. Little became principal. He is very involved from education to the safety of our kids. Thanks Guys!

I attended Mount Vernon Elementary as a third grader in the early nineties. My teacher, Elaine Baldwin, was the absolute best teacher I ever had. At Mount Vernon, all forms of creativity were encouraged. I'll never forget it.

my child attended this school for 3 years. He had some wonderful teachers K-1, they worked well with all the kids.

He missed some of the fundamentals that 2nd grade offered and he felt to stressed to understand ...  Read more

My second grade child started attending Mt. Vernon this year. There are a lot of differences from her previous school--some good and some bad. The few things that need help; teachers need to be in class more. My child's teacher has been out a lot; some for personal reasons but most because she is ...  Read more

Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled.

The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.
