Principal's Welcome

Parents, Guardians, a Chairde

Deciding on a secondary school for your son or daughter is a major decision for each parent. As principal here in Mountrath Community School, I can say with conviction that the experienced and caring staff in Mountrath Community School is deeply committed to your child's transition from primary to secondary school. The level of genuine care and support shown to the students is of the highest level. The open and warm relationships between students and teachers is immediately apparent when walking through our corridors and witnessing the interactions and relationships between teachers and students. In Mountrath Community School, our students feel valued and are at the heart of all that we do and the students are in turn very proud of their school and their achievements and their school.

The level of student expectations is set very high which has consistently driven our academic success. Students are always expected and encouraged to achieve their individual potential.
