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.

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.

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.
