Lots of bullying. I see kids being bullied everyday and teachers do NOTHING about it. Even some of my friends will report bullying and nothing is done. Not a good environment to be in.

It's a great school that constantly tries to improve to help the children succeed.

Every teacher that we have come across at MVMS has been wonderful. They definitely care about the success of their students.

The teachers in the Merrimack Valley School District are highly respected and are well liked. They spend more than half of their summer at conferences and classes to make our school a safe and the best it can be.
