High Schools of Choice

Students in the Mount Vernon City School District choose from among three high schools based on their interests. They are: 

  • The Mount Vernon High School. The traditional high school with a rigorous curriculum and a full complement of offerings to prepare all students for success after high school whether they enter colleges, careers or the military. The school’s mission is to “inspire students to be inquisitive, knowledge-seeking, compassionate and principled.”
