My son was in the kindergarten class this past year, and we were very pleased with this school. We thought that the level of parent participation was quite high, the interest level of his teacher(and most teachers that we experienced,)was as well. Although this was my son's teacher's first year of teaching, she really seemed to know each child quite well. She welcomed and encouraged us parents, although at times we felt a little ill-informed at certain class and school events. I'm sure that was just because of inexperience. We look forward to all of the opportunities awaiting our son as he progresses through this curriculum.

MVCS is a terrible school. You might take their little tour and then you'll think its great. But the teachers dont teach. They leave it all up to the students. Certain students get privileges because they have a parent in the staff. Teachers will assign work and not do any teaching. They spend the tuition money on meaningless things and dont keep track of how the school is going. The students are treated differently. Some teachers are even racist. They spend more time on sports than acedemics. MVCS is a waste of money. Dont make your child suffer.

I think this school offers a great education to an extent but I dont like the fact that some of the teachers and adminisrtation are rascist toward some of the students. I don't feel that this school offers enough ways for my child to get a scholarship and provide enough electives.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
