Mt. Pleasant High School (MPHS) opened its doors in 1965 in San Jose's East Side community. The East Side of San Jose is an ethnically and economically diverse immigrant community and Mt. Pleasant's student community reflects these demographics. Our current student population is 69% Latino, 13% Asian, 9% Latino, 4% White and 3% African American.
Although we celebrated our 50th anniversary in 2015, our school has modern 21st century classrooms and facilities due to income generated through a series of bond measures approved by our community. These new facilities include a theater, a multi-purpose room, new classrooms, renovated gym and locker rooms and a competitive state of the art pool.
We are proud of our commitment to our students and our community and of the partnerships we have developed to accomplish our goal to prepare our students to be college and career ready.
Here at MP we strive to provide a positive learning environment for all students. As the Principal, it is my goal to ensure that students receive a quality education while at Mt. Pleasant and that their high school experience prepares them for any post-secondary plans they may have. Our staff is dedicated to working with students and community to increase student achievement and offer students opportunities that will help them grow academically and socially.
On behalf of the entire Mt. Pleasant High School staff, I thank you for your support and invite you to visit us.
