    I went into HS ISD after living in Mount Vernon and found the school was such a better enviroment. There was practically no violence and all of the teachers were wonderful. I learned a tremendous amount by the time I left HS ISD unfortunately the school I moved to was not as well managed ro equipped as HS ISD.
