Monument Valley is a great school. There are a lot of free after school programs, arts are valued and the teachers and administration are supportive.

At Monument Valley there is barely any bullying and everyone gets along very well and all the children support eachother, making this a delightful learning experience and community to thrive in. So in summerization MVM rocks!


Posted March 14, 2010

I go to Monument Valley and it is a great school for socializing and learning. One thing that I don't like is how they have you practice MCAS throughout the whole year!

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Massachusetts used the Massachusetts Comprehensive Assessment System (MCAS) to test students in grades 3 though 8 and 10 in English language arts and math and in grades 5, 8, and 10 in science. The grade 10 MCAS is a high school graduation requirement. The MCAS is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Massachusetts. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
