The school has a new principal who seems to be trying to make changes that will improve teacher support and parent concerns. The next couple of years will tell how effective those changes are. The school is IB and dual immersion so they do not fall under the normal guidelines. There is a group of parents who fell there is a lack of communication however this could be from the principal being “new” and waiting to communicate due to due diligence and I am okay with that.
Principal Mr. Little is great, and so is the rest of the office staff. Each child has two teachers which is good and bad. My son has been in this school since preschool and now fluent in Spanish in the 3rd grade. There are some great teachers that are really enthusiastic and you can tell they love what they do such as Senora Johnson, Partridge and Adame, Sherrillo.
the students get detention for nothing, teachers and staffs being over sensitive and low fund plus a lot of bullying, your children will be depress before 18 and might have sucide thoughts
This school has a small group of great teachers. Unfortunately, they lack the support of the administration to help their students succeed. Many staff at MV protect the bullies, by not taking appropriate disciplinary action when they act out against their peers, they are coddled and excuses are made for they behavior when they lash out at their peers. They are still allowed to go on field trips and be part of safety patrol and other clubs. The parents are the same, if they belittle the staff and volunteers, they are given power over others and not confronted about their behavior. While their DI program is excellent and not offered at many schools, they do not offer many resources for students who test above grade level. Awards are given for participation and mediocrity, not as they are deserved. The traffic flow for pick up and drop off is horrendous. Parents park in the loading zones and no one asks them to move. Unfortunately, the failure comes from the top.
