MOUNT PLEASANT, SC -

Nestled in the arms of the Old Village of Mount Pleasant, you find Mount Pleasant Academy. We're in Charleston county for our Cool School of the week.

Mount Pleasant Academy has 536 students in grades pre-k through 5th. Known for its strong academics and rigorous curriculum, MPA has excellent ratings on school report cards. They are among the highest in the state, when it comes to student achievement. The state of the art school has smart boards and document cameras in all classrooms.

Principal Jane Davis credits dedicated teachers, motivated, well-behaved students, parents and community support for the school's continued success. Davis says, "I think Mount Pleasant Academy is a wonderful school. The best school. I spent lots of years of my professional career here at Mount Pleasant Academy. It keeps getting better and better. Our teachers grow, our children grow, our community support grows. I can't say enough good things about our school." Third grade student River Simmons says, "She's the best principal I ever had. She's not mean. She's really good at doing her job." Teacher Kathy Pyle says, "I love Mount Pleasant Academy. It's an amazing school, very lucky to have a lot of parent involvement, as well as community involvement. It makes our job a lot easier." Fifth grade student Jayla Grant says, "This is a very good school because we work very hard and we love learning here."
