Miami Valley Academies is a great charter school! They are compassionate and caring. The school of choice is a great place to send your children. They boost small class enrollment sizes, they have updated technology and offer after-school tutoring. The school itself is small so offering one-on-one help and individual attention happens daily. The food is catered in each day for breakfast and lunch and the school follows the USDA requirements. Advanced Placement courses and foreign language will be offered via on-line so students can have access 24/7. Great School and Great Staff!

It's not even an actual school. It's literally an old lumber factory that they put classrooms into. It's like a daycare... The kids go there, and play on computers and ipods all day during their classes. The school is dirty, they don't have enough books for every student, and the lunches are either undercooked, or burnt, but either way they're served cold. The heaters never work, my kids had to wear layers of clothing just to stay somewhat warm in the winter. The work that is given to the students is grade levels below what they should be learning. The high school classrooms are tiny, and sometimes didn't have enough seats to fit all of the students (if all of the students actually showed up that day... which is rare). The class sizes are small, no more than 25 kids per grade. If you are considering taking your child to learn at MVA, please ask for a tour of the entire building before enrolling them. I was fooled my the polished look of the front office, and wasn't aware of the horrors that were found in the main part of the school until after my kids were anrolled.
