About this school

For 50 years, our students have enjoyed the freedom to explore their world, in a community that encourages them to discover how to express themselves in it. Teachers here do more than prepare students to score well on a test someday. They empower students to live life to the fullest every day, to discover their true passion and purpose, and to pursue it with emotional and intellectual rigor. It's why students don't just come to The Miami Valley School. Here they become.
