School Reviews

  • Recommended September 06, 2013 - Beautiful campus. I have a son that has not always adjusted well with large groups and has done very well so far. He is a junior and I am very happy with his progress. Teachers have been very helpful. - Posted by Parent
  • Recommended November 29, 2010 - Mount Blue High School is a cesspool of negativity. The dropout rate at Mount Blue is disgustingly high and this school is NOT credited. Getting your GED is BETTER than getting a diploma and MBHS. I don't know a happy student up there. Dont' consider this school. - Posted by Student/Alumni
