Mt. Pleasant High School succeeded in preparing my child for college. The majority of the teachers do an excellent job of teaching their students not only subject matter, but also real-world applications. They are a very caring group of educators who go beyond the classroom offering after-school tutoring and encouragement and support at extra-curricular activities. This is a small school with a big heart.

Mt. Pleasant High is a great school. They have good teachers and they care about them. That is the way small schools schould be. They protect and care for the children and offer them the skills they need to be successful in life.

My child did poorly at this school, the teachers showed little or no intrest in the children. And I had to constantly treat my childs head for head lice. That is why we moved and I am so glad that we did. A one star rating is to high for this school.

The school is not so great. I go to school there and not every single teacher really tries to help us students understand every thing we have trouble with we ask questions but the teachers more than half of the time fail to answer them to help all of us students to succed in our studies.

This is a great school. It has a small town atmosphere, while still being ethically diverse and cloase enough to a big city to not be too small town. The football seem is 53-12 the last 5 years, the basketball team and baseball team compete for district titles every year.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Tennessee used the Gateway/End-of-Course (EOC) exams to test high school students in language arts, math, science, and social studies upon completion of relevant courses. Students must pass the algebra I, English II, and biology I tests, called the Gateway exams, in order to graduate. The Gateway/EOC exams are standards-based tests that measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of Tennessee. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level.
