  • Reviewed by Former Student on August 12, 2010
  • Rating: 4 (4 / 5) Flag as inappropriate
  • It's Mont Pleasant, not Mount Pleasant. It formerly was a high school. I went there in 1947. My favorite teacher was my geometry teacher, Ms. Ireland. As best as I can recall, it was a good high school; I hope it's a good middle school.
