Principal's Message

Dear Parents and Students,

Welcome to Mount Pleasant Area Junior High School, a learning community dedicated to providing you and your family a high quality education where students learn the life skills that will enable them to be successful for tomorrow. 

This fall, we celebrate our 54th anniversary as a joint school district.  We will honor the achievements and contributions of our students who have walked the junior high school hallways.  And we will recognize how our school has grown and how the junior high school has served our residents.


But there is another attribute to celebrate- a constant throughout MPASD’s history.  Our junior high school proudly proclaims its citizen’s original vision of educating all students in an inclusive and caring setting.  


Many factors have led to our school building’s success since 1965.  Bright and inquisitive students. Talented and caring teachers. Dedicated staff.  Loyal former students. A proud, hard-working community.


Our school’s legacy reminds us of our obligation to support our children and neighbors.  It includes sharing our expertise to improve the quality of life for our students, inviting the Mount Pleasant Area community to our school for special events, and making our community a part of our creative and hands-on learning programs.  


Once again, we are very excited about this school year and for the opportunity to educate your child.  We look forward to continuing our partnership with you and your child to achieve the highest degree of excellence in their education.

Dr. John P. Campbell
Mount Pleasant Area Junior High School
