The purpose of Mt. Juliet High School PTSO is to:
• Serve as an advocate for the education and well-being of every student.
• Serve as a relevant resource for families and wider Wilson Co. community.
• Promote open communication between administration, teachers, students and parents.
• Serve as forum where parents, guardians, teachers, administrators, and other concerned adults can discuss ways to promote quality education, encourage community involvement, and work for a healthy environment and safe neighborhood.
