A gaint failure of a school. A complete disaster in everything it tries to accomplish. Most of the teachers act out in very unprofesional ways, including bouts of anger and extreme behaivor that is unacceptable. Very poor school that needs a lot of adjusting to become something more postive.

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.

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.

Alternative schools provide students with unique challenges or abilities an opportunity to succeed in a different educational setting.
