This is the first year that we are attending this school. So far our experience has been average. The PTA have really good fund raising efforts but the resources, materials and classroom technology are a little antiquated. However, things are improving and can't wait to see how everything turns out with the new "core curriculum " standards. Note: This rating is only reflective of the services and interactions that I have had from September 2011 until current. The teachers that I have met with are personable and knowledgable. The class sizes are larger than I'd hope when we enrolled but it being a public school with limited funding I am sure they are doing the best that they can.
I think MGV is a great school. The teachers and staff are awesome. I have 2 children that attend this school and they are very happy there. I think they are getting an excellent education. The teachers seem to go above and beyond what's expected from them. I have no complaints.
I have a child with adhd and the school has unveiled every resource possiable and through this, my child has progressed and succeding in her educational journey. The teachers and other staff are great. I couldnt ask for a better school.
This is the worst school I have ever had the displeasure of dealing with. There is no organization at all, nobody ever knows what is really going on, and the schedule they make for events always changes the morning of, and most of the time, they don't inform anybody of it. Plain and simple -worst, worst, worst. I am moving to another town because of how terrible this school was.
M.G.V. is nothing short of a great school. My first daughter attended M.G.V. and left happy yet saddened because she loved it there. My 2nd grader too loves M.G.V. I have had absolutely no problems....Staff is great, safety comes first, and my children have excellent grades. Good behavior begins at home...Extra help is available for kids with needs. Great school!
My son went through this school and is now going into 10th grade and my daughter is currently on her way into 3rd grade. I feel that the teachers are very good for the most part as long as they keep the lines of communication open with the parents. This stands true for any school though. The children are safe in this environment. The teachers are loved by their students.
The teachers at M.G.V. have been nothing but supportive, and helpful getting my children back on track with their grades.
Test scores are way too low. I'm not an advocate for all these tests but MGV is at the bottom of the list in the NB School district. They used to be on the top about 5 yrs ago. I am not very impressed overall with this school or the district.
I absolutely love M.G.V. I have six children,two of which attend currently. Our family has had the pleasure of working with outstanding teachers and staff. Each of my children, all ranging in ability, received an outstanding education! It is my hope that they will continue on with such great experiences in the schools they will attend in the future! Keep up the GREAT work!
