This school is an absolute joke from the teachers, coaches as well as the prin and super. I have never seen anything more depressing toward our world than seeing this school promote HATE and small town politics to the students by the teachers and the parents. If you are not from this area, you will be treated very poorly. Do not attend this school if you want fair treatment, it's simply not going to happen. They are not there for the students, its about control of the school and the athletic program from all of the locals that live there that teach and want control of their football team. I feel bad for anyone going here, they are not getting the correct education they need to be successful out in the REAL world.

I attended this school and the teachers were very good but the students are very immature (considering they grow up in such a isolated town) They all act as though they are still in 3rd grade. Overall it wasnt a bad experience but the students were very annoying.

It has such a great small town/family feeling. Everyone knows everyone else and routs for them.

I went to school at Mount Ida and it is an okay school. Yes the football team is very big thing at that school, however the drama is much bigger. Also the teacher are amazing, I love them all .

I attended Mount Ida Schools from preschool to Senior High. I graduated top of my class, I now go to one of the top schools in the nation, and I am excelling here. I plan on moving abroad next year, and I couldn't ask for more from my life. I firmly believe that Mount Ida Schools are a huge part of my success, as I have never wanted for anything from the teachers or other faculty members. There is a massive support system in the Mount Ida School District for everything from extra curricular activities to academia. Again, I have a deep love for this school.... I don't think you can find that just anywhere.

Mount Ida is a great school. It has wonderful academic opportunities and extracurricular activities. You should come and watch how supportive the parents are at Friday night football games and basketball games. The teachers put the students first in everything. Over all this is a wonderful school.

Even though parents aren't around to be there for their children the teachers do all they can to be there for them. A student

Mount Ida High School is very focused on Athletics and not so on brain challenging activities.We once had a big excellent band but that is no more.Seems to be a big teacher turnover at the high school level.If your child excells easily on his/her own they should do well with the high school teachers.
