District-wide Art Show a Success

Mount Pleasant’s first district-wide art show “Ways of Seeing” which featured works from students K-12, was held this spring in the Westlake campus library. Hundreds turned out for the opening reception to view works by budding artists of all ages. First, second and third place certificates were awarded by grade level or course. To see the complete list of winners visit the What's News blog.

Facilities Steering Committee Makes Recommendations
Addressing the modernization of our infrastructure and buildings is part of the district's Strategic Plan. Over the past four months, the Facilities Steering Committee has been studying the immediate as well as future needs of our buildings, our students and our community. The committee made its recommendations on a modernization proposal to the Board of Education at the June 4 Work Session. To view the presentation, click here.

To learn more about the modernization project and pre-bond planning please view the Facilities Planning page under the District Information tab. To watch the community Facilities Forum video from Oct. 30, click here.

From the Superintendent

Welcome to the Mount Pleasant Central School District!
Our district is located in central Westchester County and is comprised of Hawthorne and Columbus Elementary Schools, Westlake Middle School and Westlake High School.  The district serves students from Hawthorne and Thornwood, as well as from portions of Valhalla and Pleasantville. Student enrollment is approximately 2,000.
The administration and faculty are dedicated and committed to providing a challenging and comprehensive education for each child. It is the primary goal of the district to encourage and nurture each student to fully develop his or her potential as a responsible constructive citizen of our society, and in that society to be a self-sufficient and self-fulfilled individual.
We invite parents and community members to become involved in the continuing development of the district's policies and direction through participation in Board of Education work sessions and monthly meetings, and by supporting the PTAs, Westlake Athletic Club and the Education Foundation.
