I have two kids, who graduated from this school and truly disliked attending it. Out of their entire staff there was only about four teachers that they liked, When it was time for my third child to attend Mt.Vernon he refused, but he had no choice. After the fourth grade I had to remove him. The school isn't challenging at all, they put to many kids in one classroom, and there is no space in this school at all. After the school's change in principal everything just got even worse.
After four years, its time to move on. My daughter has complained about being bored in class for the past two years. The work has either been non-existent or not challenging enough. Kindergarten and 1st grade, I had no complaints but 2nd and 3rd I supplemented heavily at home.
