Over the years, the Mt. Vernon Community School Corporation (MVCSC) has experienced increased student enrollment. With the construction of the elementary schools and renovation of the high school, the district is in pretty good shape, with one sticking point. Mt. Vernon Middle School (MVMS), which currently houses grades 6-7, has not seen a great deal of renovation over the years. The original construction was designed to hold three grade levels, however, as enrollment increased over the years, trying to do that posed quite a challenge and the district moved the composition to two grade levels.
