The comment posted May 25, 2010 could have been written by me. My daughter is flourishing, despite having some personal issues last year that staff were very helpful with.

The school cares about the students and the family; the families care about the school; and the local community are also very supportive of the school. There is great sense of community.

The school staff has been responsive to any questions and concerns that I ...  Read more

We have two kids at Mt. Vernon and have been very happy with the school. In addition to receiving a solid education, it is a very supportive environment and in combination with the Mt.
