Profile Completeness

BASIC

Want to improve this school’s profile? You can!

All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.

Looking for a job at Mt. Pulaski? Do your homework. 1) Ask teachers are administration expectations communicated? When you have discipline/grade issues, will the principal/superintendent back you? If a student is a child of a board member, how does that impact their support? Do teachers respect, like, trust the principal/superintendent? 2) Do teachers have a good working relationship with the board? Are there members and their children you need to avoid because you will risk your job? 3) How many students were in the alternative school? Will you be held accountable for a failing students? 4) Has the school has been involved in litigation within the last 7 years? Why? 5) Do teachers like their jobs. Have they considered quitting? Do they feel the school is going in a generally positive or negative direction? Contact teachers in and out of your department. You will need/want an unfiltered assessment before you make a decision, so try to speak privately. Consider contacting the prior teacher. Good luck!

I'm going to be honest in my oppinions and facts about this school. I rated MPHS 'above average' because today's schools aren't very.. satisfactory. We have our share of problems with teachers and students, test scores and lunch menus, but this is a great place to send your children. I don't have to worry about a gun being brought to school, being stabbed in the bathroom, or a classmate killing themselves in the bathroom. Of course, it is a possibility at ANY school, but we're such a close-knit school that those types of things just aren't going on around here. Everyone in MPHS knows everyone else. This isn't great for the gossip factor, but it's nice to know who you're around and what type of person they are. It seems at times that sport players are HIGHLY favored, but there's a fair balance of teachers who favorite players and treat them the same.

Great girls volleyball team, good emphasis on homework, great teachers. Only offer one foreign language - Spanish. Very farming oriented school - over 40% of school in FFA.
