Mount Vernon School System has gone down the tubes. The Superintendant needs to go. He has done nothing for Mount Vernon. The people of Mount Vernon really needs to make and stand. You also have a Principal over at Longfellow Middle School who is friends of Dr. Sawyer who needs to go also. He is a rude man who does not respect his staff, and his staff hates his guts.

I have a 38 year old daughter, a 36 year old son, a 26 year old daughter and an 18 year old son....all of whom attended Mt. Vernon elementary/middle/high schools....and the school system here has been sub-par (sinking down further and further, year after year) since my oldest attended.

BTW, not one of my kids ever graduated from MVHS. They all voluntarily chose to leave shortly after turning 16.

Kind of says a LOT about our one and only high school, don't you think?

The city of Mt Vernon has stellar schools and they should be praised not put down! Everyone should thank the excelleent leadership we have heading our schools.

Are you serious? Okay, perhaps the elementary schools could somehow be classified as "stellar", so I MIGHT give ya that. But beyond elementary? I highly doubt it!
