ACADEMICS & SCHOOL LIFE
Mt. Blue Campus (MBC) is the home of Mt. Blue High School (MBHS) and Foster Career and Technical Education Center (FCTEC). Traditional high school and career and technical classrooms are located side-by-side at MBC, which exposes students to a variety of subjects and provides faculty opportunities for interdisciplinary instruction.
As a student at MBHS you will have opportunities to take part in rigorous academic classes. We offer honors and advanced placement classes in many different content areas. In addition, we offer many hands-on technical classes on campus through FCTEC. Our music, art, and performing arts programs are some of the best in the state.
