  • Students Make Shea Butter at MVHS Library

    Building a creative community in the Library’s Makerspace is crucial to the direction that Mount Vernon School Libraries envision. The aim of the MakerSpace is to provide students with an avenue to create, produce, and connect with other students. We establish an environment that is fun, practical, and whereby the learning is meaningful. Students can take these additional skills and ideas beyond Mount Vernon to thrive. Hence, on December 19, 2019, the Makerspace had its first, “Unleash Your Creativity,” event where students learned how to create their own shea body butter with organic ingredients. It was a great turnout. We hosted 15 students and they were all able to take home a sample of the product they made. It is our hope that we can do more of these events to inspire students’ creativity, while instilling confidence in them to become their own makers and producers. Please see a few photos below from the event.

  • MVHS hosts the Interactive High School of Choice Night

    The Mount Vernon High School provides a rigorous and comprehensive high school curriculum featuring a heavy emphasis on humanities, career and technical programs. Because of its commitment to student achievement, a wide range of honors and Advanced Placement (AP) coursework is also offered, giving students an opportunity to earn 30 college credits from a wide range of demanding math, science, social studies and English AP offerings. (https://apstudent.collegeboard.org) Additionally, students can also participate in the Syracuse University Project Advance (SUPA) program (http://supa.syr.edu) where they can take SUPA courses which provide for dual-enrollment credits in high school and transferrable college credits. The high school will also offer a strong Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID) (http://www.avid.org) presence to further ensure students are fully career and college ready. AVID is a college and career readiness program that serves as a bridge to rigor and a culture of readiness for post-secondary opportunities. In addition, the District has submitted an application to join the International Baccalaureate program. (http://www.ibo.org) Also, a career technical education (CTE) program is available with specializations in cosmetics, automotive technology, barbering, CISCO networking, culinary, nursing, TV production, photography, dental, animation and print production.
