Mount Pleasant High School Reviews
Terrible (read review for specifics)
This school is quite terrible. I had only gone there for two years (thankfully), and I feel robbed of my education. In 11th grade I took no AP courses, and the coursework was painfully easy; it stressed the memorization of mundane/trivial things opposed to real learning (e.g. using the scientific method). The non-AP science classes were a total joke; Chemistry comes to mind. The teacher was out for for a total of a few weeks, leaving earth science diddo sheets designed for ESL (English second-language) students, and the feedback on lab reports was trivial at best (e.g. focusing on grammatical errors). My middle school I went to, San Miguel, was actually more challenging than the 11th grade; i'm serious. As for the AP, they devised an EEP program for the AP classrooms which was decided over voting majority; it was a program that HALVED the pace of the classroom. The real problem with the school is the guidance department, however - they are among the most incompetent people I've had the misfortune of dealing with in my entire life. If you are reading this and have a child going into high school, please do not bring them for Mount Pleasant; I beg you for the you child's education sake. Try classical high school for public district high schools in providence, as it is leagues better. The only reason why I have a decent education was that I studied lectures online in my personal time during high school. I hope this post helps someone out there, and shows Mount Pleasant for the abomination it is.
Students are not equal, and teachers rated all in poor range, giving validity to the comments on the scourge of students are sent to these schools
