    Mount Vernon has a really good envirornment for kids. There are some cliques but it doesn't get too out of hand. Most of the teachers are absolutely great and some are a bit iffy but still quite nice (once you get on their good side) Im a student going into 8th grade and I find my school experience much better than the one I had when I lived in Chicago. I love this school and I've learned so much in the past 2 years. Even though the rating on GreatSchools is a 5 don't underestimate it. Mount Vernon has a wonderful school system and good teachers that teach. LOVE THIS SCHOOL!!
