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.

I am very happy with MVCS. My 2 children have been there K-6th and 1st-8th. They both intend on graduating from MVCS. It is a wonderful enviroment with teachers and administration that care.

Best Christian private school in Las Vegas. I have had all three of my children attend there. Excels and improves every year. Best decision I ever made!

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.
