A Message from Dr. Mays - Fall, 2018

The 2018-2019 school year is upon us and we are looking forward to another great year.  Academically we are pleased to announce that we are now partnering with Stephen F. Austin State University to offer our students access to Dual Credit classes that are University level.  We expect the rigor of these classes to be higher and likewise we expect that our students will rise to the needed level and demonstrate success that we are accustomed to here at Mount.  Our Career Prep and Practicum programs continue to grow and we are happy that we have been able to add in additional pathways and classes to offer our students more choices and experiences.  As far as extra curricular, we have grown to expect success from our agricultural, athletic, band, and fine arts programs but this year we look to increase those successes in Leadership events and UIL academics.

As always, parents we welcome you to come to our school and be an active part of your child’s education.  The stronger the partnership between the school and the parents, the better the educational experience can be provided for the student.  After all, just as our motto for 2018-2019 states....We are Wildcats!
