The Mount Vernon School
510 Mt. Vernon Highway NE and 471 Mt. Vernon Highway NE, Atlanta
Established in 1972 and located in Sandy Springs, Georgia, Mount Vernon inspires innovation in Preschool through grade 12. We are dedicated to creating a learning environment that equips all students to be college ready, globally competitive and engaged citizens leaders. Leading national conversation around K-12 integration of design thinking, students collaborate through research, experiment with results, and ultimately produce prototypes to impact the world.
TMVS amplifies the skills needed to engage in real-world, people-centered problem solving through design thinking and project-based learning. Mount Vernon offers students the extraordinary opportunity to become lead designers of their own learning as they observe, question, empathize, experiment, and implement solutions to human-centered issues. Students gain real-world experience by collaborating with corporations and non-profits such as Delta, Porsche, AT&T, the Center for Civil and Human Rights, and Magic Wheelchair Project.
As a partner of Stanford’s d.School, Mount Vernon launched its Mount Vernon Institute for Innovation (MVIFI) in 2010 as a research and design arm of TMVS. Students are constantly exposed to and encouraged to interact with experts in local, national, and global communities to design a better world.
