This school has the best teachers that go the extra mile to help the students achieve!!!! I love this school and I am so glad both my children have attended this school. It is an amazing school with a caring staff!!!!
Great school! Lots of spirit and school involvement as well as great teachers who care about their students and are always available for help.
The staff of teachers are great! You can really tell that everyone who is working here puts a lot of effort into the school.
I'm a freshman football player and so far i love mvhs, noproblem here
I am an alumni from here and well all the teachers are great they encourage you to work hard and are there for you if you need help.
i WAS a junior at MVHS, mostly all of the teachers are great, and encourage you to go before and after school for help. Although, the assistant principals and what not, are WAYY to concerned about rules and our overly strict. Also, the girl cliques here are aweful.
i on the other hand find the Moon Valley theatre to be an excellent program for the students. it has got them involved and helped them achieve their highest goals in life. Confidence, Loyalty, Friendship, and Devotion. My daughter has been involved for only 2 years and it has changed her life in a positive way. those who believe this theatre is a distraction or problem on the campus should reconsider going to a different school...MV theatre is one of the best things thats happened to Moon Valley. It started a Pam McCentire Scholarship and isnt even allowed to participate with it. its won best Club on Campus and brings out the school spirit even more than the StuCo.. i guess im just one of the few people who sees the great things MV theatre brings..
Moon Valley is an excellent High School compared to many others in the area. The one area that I can find fault with it the Theatre program. It is very difficult to get into theatre and when recently a musical play was presented only one person from chorus was 'allowed' to take part. Everyone who wishes to tryout should be allowed to and not just the honored few.
MVHS is an excellent school. The faculty strives to provide high quality education for all students and truly believes in the school motto, 'Success, every student, every day.' MVHS is a school in which the education and welfare of students is of the highest priority.
I wasn't given the option of choosing a different high school. I was stuck going here & I disliked the theatre program so much (it was vastly inferior to my previous HS in CA) that I stopped doing theatre until college.
I dont like Moon Valley.My daughter is a senior there and she has had a few good teachers but many are not good instructors, they get caught up in the politics of whose who, especially if your child wants to be in sports. If your kid is 'popular' no problem, but if they are not popular and especially if they are a minority, dont go to moon valley if you have a choice. I feel sorry for the few teachers and coaches who really care about all kids, but they are being undermined by those who are not there for all children.
I had wonderful teachers that went the extra mile for me. I was not into sports so I didn't get any special treatment there, I just did my school work and attended classes everyday and I graduated with an advanced diploma!
If they don't teach, coach or clean, get rid of them. The school system lacks male leadership from the principle on down. The school system is too top heavy.
I am not a parent, but I am a senior at this school. The graduation rate is only low not because of stupidity, but because I have had multipul friends drop out only to go get jobs to help their family. This is a good school, but too focused on things such as football and not enough to help programs like fire science and NJROTC.
