Missisquoi Valley union highschool is a very close knit community, many students are 2nd+ generation students, their parents being alumni. Many students have Abenaki, Native American blood, we support and learn about the schools history, and Abenaki culture. There's a good handful of really amazing teachers, and admin in this school, it's a very welcoming community. We love new kids, our school isn't nearly as diverse as any other school in the state, or country, we love new people, we make sure to make them feel loved and welcome. MVU is a very family oriented school, and I love it for that

I enjoyed the fact that MVU is a very artistic school and offered many classes for a creative minded person. I was able to expand my knowledge of Art, Film History, and Graphic Design. What I would like changed at MVU is the social aspects. Many students are not open-minded and are immature. Some students gave teachers a hard time during lessons.
I really enjoyed school, but mainly only for social reasons. There are MANY amazing teachers, honestly most are, but most of the teachers do not know how to engage the students in the classroom. I actually once there had a teacher give me an F on an assignment, and then hand it out to the class as a "model piece" and she put someone else's name on it. I found this out post graduation from friends thats were still there. The arts are AMAZING, and so is Mr.Hartman the principle. One of the best men, and coaches around.
