We were very happy with the academic and social emotional support provided at MVMS. Our son has learning differences and received all accommodations needed. The special education team is highly skilled, kind and effective.
If your child is a good student (academically and otherwise), and does not have any special needs or learning differences (we have one of each type of student), I highly recommend MVMS, but only for their teaching staff. Our kids have had nothing but exemplary teachers at MVMS, and to several of them who have picked up the slack of the administrators and the counselor, working after hours and at lunch to help our kids (and other kids), we are grateful. If your child does have special needs, I still recommend MVMS for the teaching staff, but go in with your eyes wide open that you will be your child's advocate, and that often times you will have to circumvent the counseling office (if you are with one particular counselor) and the administration to fight (and I do mean fight) for what your child needs. It's not easy, but the teachers make it worth the while.
I have sent three of my children here, all have found it a depressing, demotivating environment. This school is overcrowded and underfunded, which of course is odd given its affluent surroundings. While there are here some dedicated teachers who deserve better pay than they get, there are some lousy, uncaring ones has well. These people should have been fired long ago, but the union protects them. This community owes its children a much better middle school.
Its amazing! there is a fabulous amount of support (emotionally and acedemically) for all students. The teachers really care about me and my peirs and work very hard to help us go far. I was dealing with some problems at home this year and they were extremly considerit and understanding about what I was going through. There is a large amount of drug and alchohal abuse..but it is well taken care of. The kids are mostly white. but overall its an outstanding school and I dont think I would be in the same happy sate without it.
