Community ratings & reviews

    Mont Pleasant Middle School exceeded all my expectations. The teachers and support staff are extremely dedicated and strive to assure that every child achieves excellence. The principal and team are always there for the students and parents. There is an open door policy for parents and communication is consistently open. My child has been given challenging opportunities and is now preparing to enter the highschool's International Baccalaureate program. It is a huge mistake for a parent to listen only to those who buy into the "bad reputation." You must find out for yourself and you'll be pleasantly surprised.
