Dear Parent or Guardian,
This letter is to inform you that beginning with the Spring Semester of 2020 MVTHS changed the grade calculation system from percent averaging to cumulative grading. In the past, we have averaged quarter grades together to derive the semester grade. Now we are calculating grades using the total points possible in a semester. This represents a truer picture of what your child has learned and the grade they have earned in each class.
You will notice on Skyward that the Quarter 1 grade will be posted and will not change as the semester continues. Likewise, the Quarter 2 grade will be its own separate grade. The actual, up to date grade that is posted to your student’s official transcript is represented by the Semester 1 grade.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us.

Mt. Vernon Township High School would like to extend our sincere condolences to the Ashby Family on the recent passing of our student, Rylan Ashby. Rylan would have been a junior at MVTHS this year. He enjoyed being a member of the MVTHS Bass Fishing Team and he especially excelled in his automotive classes and other career and tech classes at MVTHS. He will be greatly missed by his classmates and staff members at MVTHS. His bravery and courage were an inspiration to all.
Memorials may be made in Rylan's honor to the "Rylan Ashby Career and Tech Memorial Scholarship". Checks may be made payable to MVTHS with the Ashby Scholarship indicated on the memo line. Donations may be mailed to the following:
