I am a former student of Mt Pleasant. I think that we have the best students and the best administrations in the state. I think every student is treated fairly and on an individual bases. You can't have a zero tolerance on everything. You have to pick your battles. This administration does what is best

Most of our teachers are very good and pride themselves in helping every child achieve their best, but there are a few that have a better than thou syndrome and is always critical of the Administration. As far as our athletes I don t think they are treated different than anybody else. Other schools have kids living out of school district and have criminal charges and still play,etc. It is embarrassing when our fine arts instructors won t even teach our kids the School song. The Band hardly ever plays it the way it was wrote. They are more interested in going to competition instead of supporting school spirit. Our Career and Technical Development teachers are the best around. Over all we have the best high school in the county by far!!! Read less

As a former student in this school, and I feel it is a well rounded school. The only acceptation, as others have mentioned, is athletics overcoming academics. The main focus of the school seems to be job related classes (Ex. Engineering, WebSite Design, Farming, Mechanics). The school offers many

Although the staff is mostly friendly, and keeps and open mind and loose policys on most things, they do seem to be stuck a few years in the past with policys like 'no hats visible on campus' and 'No CD/MP3 players on campus'(That particular rule bothered me during lunch or after school). All together, a great school, very safe, even for geeks like me. Read less

The pros of this school are it's small size and ability to cater to each students individual needs. There are many wonderful teachers here who only care about your student's education and well-being.

This school lacks focus on academics in large part due to lax administrative decisions. The focus on athletics has overtaken the key academics, leading to unprepared students post graduation. Parents are involved in athletics as well, not academics. Extracurricular activites are made available to
