Our families aren’t just part of the community,they are the community.
“My daughter started in 2nd grade, and it was as though her light switch flipped on. She became another kid and started absolutely loving school. What strikes me about Mount Vernon is that it is all about the students and how they can be engaged in their learning and pushed to achieve.
I see correlations between what they are doing and what the universities I attended are doing, and that really excites me. Last but not least the school community itself is wonderful between the school leadership, teacher, parents, and students. We love our school!!”
-Stacey D. Current Parent of Middle and Upper School Students
