We came to this school after 11 years of having kids in private schools. Therefore we were used to a high standard of education and parent participation. We have now been at KMVA for 8 years, because our exceptions for our kids to get a great education are being meet and exceeded. The principal is strong leader and really gets to know all the students. The teachers get to know and understand your child's unique learning style & personality because the class sizes are so small. The school has challenging academic programs at all grade levels. Advanced elementary students can access middle and high school courses on campus. I highly recommend this school to anyone who is looking for the level of education and parent participation you get in a private school. Since KMVA doesn't offer sports or band your student can participate in these programs through what would be their local home school.

This is our 2nd year at KMVA and we are thrilled !!!! Reading the comments below my only comment would be that all of KDS is taking a hit and losing recess and lunch time - it's across the board. The cut backs are hitting all scholls but KMVA will feel it less cause they are smaller and have less funding anyways - less to take away from... I have not experienced any religeon as some stated below. This is a school in KSD so they have to stick to the curriculem, howver, they excel because of their teachers passion to teach and the size of the school. LOVE LOVE LOVE it and so do my kids!!!!

This is my 3rd year here and I could not be happier. I may not have straight A's but i'm passing. We have some flaws, every school does. But as far as it goes we are closest to perfection as possible! I would reccomend this school to anyone. I transferred here from the Tukwila School District. It's so small that there are no social out laws and I know almost every staff memeber. We are always there for eachother.

I'm going to be a senior this year, and I've been attending KMVA since 7th grade. I've had the chance to know the teachers and know the students. The teachers here are wonderful, I attended a private school which pales in comparrison to this school. It's not to far from highline community college which is a bonus, less travel time if your doing running start. The people at this school are absoultely amazing, and I wouldn't change a thing about it. The nice thing is, is there are no distractions such as sports, you don't have the pressure of being on a team or not, and until recently there were no dances however that was changed. The classes are small, which means you can get one on one time if you need help with something. This school is just amazing.

This school is one of the best there is. I think this because I have been going here for 4 and 1/2 years, and I'm probably staying here for the rest. This school is quite small, but I think that's good because everyone knows everyone else there, either from reading the yearbooks or from their own experience. There are no fights(well, not often) and no actual gangs. Sure, people may have their own opinions about this school, but I think it's awesome, and that's what matters to me.

This is our second year here, and am very impressed with the teachers, staff and overall program. Best environment for my kids coming out of homeschooling.

This is year number 5 for me, and it is not as good as it used to be; the elective schedule is kind of hectic, lunch is 25 min, and longer day than last year; still, in the long run, not so bad.

I have been attending this school for 2 years now.Last year was okay.I felt welcomed. The only problem was that this school didn't have any athletic community.I mean i had more friends last year than this year. This year now we have pe for only 30 mins now. We should be having it for at least for an hour. cause 30 mins isn't enough to even explain the stuff we are doing in pe. Overall this school is really about all the academic stuff . Its okay. The Schedule is pretty good. I just wish we had a longer lunch. /lunch is only 25 mins. its not enough. well thanks for reading this.

We have been attending this school for several years and have nothing but positive things to say. There are excellent teachers and administrative staff at this school, who go above and beyond our expectations.

My daughter went to this school for two years. She was ostracized for being the 'wrong' religion and we are CHRISTIANS. When we started looking into colleges in her junior year we starting finding all sorts of problems getting her transcripts. We quickly transferred her to a private Christian high school. She is now a student at the UW. The college told us they have never had a student attend the U directly out of this school. This is not a college prep high school. It also has no vocational programs.

This is a school that doesn't work for every student. Some kids do exceptionally well in this setting. I'ts small and the parent involvement is high. Programs like sports and prom and extracurricular activities are not available. Its more about academics. The school work seems to be a little harder. But they have some very good programs and its worth checking out.

My child went to this school for two years. It was the worst experience for both my student and our family. Unless you are prepared to subscribe to very strict religious overtones (sometimes quite blatant) Is this what you want for your child? There are no dances allowed, no PTSA, a strange dress code and only some parents are asked to help on campus.

the school is great! there are less students in a class room so the students learn alot better then in a regular class.

Posted April 18, 2005

this school was the best school ever! the classes are small so you can really get the help you need unlike other high schools there are like 30 kids and one teacher.

Posted September 9, 2004

Going to this school has given me the best education I think one can get at a public high school. The classes aren't crowded and you develop a personal connection with teachers and staff. The majority of students who attend are friendly; you can't help but open up to classmates when your school is so small. The classes are great, and in the harder classes you have plenty of opportunities to seek and find help. The only drawback is that KMVA is too small of a school to have extracurricular activities.
