A Message from Dr. Mays - August, 2017

Hard to believe that summer has come and passed, but now it’s time to begin another exciting school year.  As always we are excited to serve the students here at Mount Enterprise ISD.  Here are a few upcoming events at Mount Enterprise JH/HS: 

  • Meet the Teacher - August 23rd - 4:00-6:00pm
  • Meet the Wildcats – August 24th @ 6:00pm – A.W. Phillips Athletic Complex
  • First Day of Classes – August 28th  ­
  • First Home Football Game (Homecoming) – September 15th @ 7:30pm vs. Colmesneil – Homecoming activities will begin at 7:00pm

Once again Mount Enterprise JH/HS have met standard in all four indices of state accountability!  We also had our highest number of students ever that received ratings of “Masters Grade Level” on state tests!  In addition, we were rated as a top high school in the nation by U.S. News and World Reports.  The Longview News Journal reported it here in this article.  Even though this is great news, we aren’t going to get complacent.  We are adding many rigorous academic avenues for our students.  We have increased our Dual Credit enrollment, increased our virtual school/distance learning opportunities, and expanded our AP offerings for our high school students.  We are doing all of this to increase the educational experiences and opportunities for all of our wonderful students here at Mount Enterprise.  This is going to be the best year yet for Mount Enterprise JH/HS and lies directly in line with our motto for the school year:  “Wildcat Pride Never Dies!”
