As a VERY active parent in this school I can speak for the majority of those INVOLVED and that actually see how things are handled within the school . Either with the Principals, Teachers or the PTO. I ensure you that this is an outstanding school. As with many schools, there are parents who will always be dissatisfied with something. However, the negative comments on this page come from a few miserable parents who can never be satisfied. So, please stop by the school and see this school for yourself! Our family loves this school!!

Weird school. They do not want parents to attend class parties or be at the school unless you are actually working for them and improving their grounds. Not family oriented. Not organized at all. My kids brought home flyers reminding them to be prepared for school events that had already happened so many times. We paid to have their names monogrammed on their yearbooks which they didn't get and also did not get our money back for that. When I contacted their teachers about the missing monograms we paid for they gave me the PTO parent's info to clear it up and she literally said to me, "You try doing this yearbook stuff. This entire year has been impossible trying to get stuff from teachers and approval on anything from anyone. Kids are going to be let down in life and can't always have everything they want and that should be a lesson. My position will be up for grabs next year if You want it!" That is the perfect example of how everything was handled. Class t-shirts that your kid is required to get and we had to pay for came in near the end of the school year and we got the wrong sizes for BOTH of our kids that were even in different classes.

The teachers cant be effective if they wanted to. The principal is off in her own world trying to pretend like everything is fine there when its really falling apart.

Amount of homework: Too much

Its not consistent and all depends on the grade and teacher. If teacher decides to teach that day then kids don't have much it seems and if the teacher decides to mess with phones and personal problems alot comes home

No. The only persistent thing at this school is squeezing money out of parents and community. School should be about learning and making good memories and that is not whats going on.

Respect doesnt exist at this school. The students are constantly told to sell this and buy that by the PTO which needs a major overhaul.

Not at all. The only thing this school is developing is a bad reputation. Lets hope the new superintendent takes all the complaints seriously and changes leadership. The students deserve so much better.

Leaderships integrity here is gone forever. Honesty and fairness left with the former principal. I have kids at this school, middle and high school and have never seen such a fallout of support for a school that took on such bad leadership.

I have two children who attend MVE and we have loved it from the very beginning. As a parent volunteer who is at school fairly regularly, I find the school environment to be positive and caring. My children have both loved every one of their teachers as have my husband and myself. Both of our children come home from school happy and are eager to go back the next day. The 7 Habits program that was implemented into our school 2 years ago, has helped my oldest child to take responsibility for his actions and his learning, which I feel will benefit far beyond the elementary school years.
