Welcome to Mount Pleasant High School!

Dear Parents, Students, and Community,

A new era at Mt. Pleasant High School has begun! Mt. Pleasant High School and its Tiger Team are committed to giving our students the tools to go from good to great, celebrating our accomplishments, embracing forward-thinking instructional practices, and providing the highest-quality education.
We will achieve our goals and realize our dreams through our Courage to Create mission. This mission inspires our students, staff, and community to take charge of their future by creating it! Our Courage to Create mission is founded on four indelible pillars:

1. Academics

2. Arts

3. Athletics

4. Ambition

These pillars ensure our students and staff are held to high academic standards, have creative choice, embrace extracurricular opportunities and reach new, unprecedented heights. For our students, this means more dual enrollment opportunities and work-based learning programs, an enriching and engaging arts department, high-caliber athletics, and a college or career mindset that prepares students for a rigorous post-secondary education and cutting-edge workforce demands. 
Our goal is simple yet ambitious: Mt. Pleasant High School will be an internationally recognized academic institution known for its innovation, inspiration, and dedication.

Welcome to Tiger Country! Stronger Together
