Welcome to the website of Mount Pleasant High School!
Welcome! I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to Mount Pleasant High School for the 2013-2014 school year! As the new Acting Principal at MPHS, it is an honor to have the opportunity to serve such an outstanding community. It is my desire to work with you, your child, and the staff to continue to foster a strong sense of community in order to increase student achievement.


As many of you know, I have served as the Associate Principal here at Mount Pleasant for the past three years. I fully expect a smooth transition as I move into this new leadership role.


I truly believe strong partnerships between parents and staff lead to academic success for all students. Therefore, I invite you to visit our school, your school,  and to actively participate in your child’s education.


I am thrilled that I get to stay a part of the Green Knight Family.




Heather Austin, Acting Principal
