Mount Ida High School is not where you want you your child to attend. This school is the most inadequate school I have ever attended. The majority of students are all entitled and rude, thinking they know more than any of the teachers, and their parents endorse that behavior. Bullying due to jealousy and racism runs rampant here. The only sport that is endorsed is football. None of the others matter. Many of the teachers do not know half of what they teach, in fact I was told a completely wrong fact by a history teacher, who counted it off on a test (the constitution was NOT signed in 1758, thank you very much). The kids openly talk about the drugs and alcohol they use, and are not punished because they play football. The only teachers that care about the students and their academic welfare are Beverly Smith, Patricia Jackson, and Sandy Crawford. The rest would rather be beat friends with the students and do not teach what students need to know. If you go to Mount Ida, you better be Peyton Manning, and know how to teach yourself in science, history, geometry, art, and business. If you want your child to succeed, and aren't a big name in this town, go somewhere else.
