Senior: I liked the College & Career Readiness program (CCR) because there were many available and willing people to go to for help. Unlike most other schools, there are two high school counselors and two college readiness counselors. With Drew being a much smaller school, in comparison, this means that each of the counselors has much more time to have individualized conversations with students, which I've found can help everyone. One thing I would like to see change is more community service opportunities; students have a minimum of 100 hours to fill but there aren't that many opportunities to do them. I'd suggest partnering with local community service agencies to give students a variety of choices so that they can be passionate about the work they're doing, not merely doing it to be able to graduate.

Parent: Everyone at MVPS shares the vision described by the school’s administrators. It’s impressive how everyone has a solid grasp of what it means to be an innovative school of learning and how consistently everyone is on the same page. Everyone is caring and engaging.
The teachers and administrators challenge themselves as well as the students which creates a great learning environment. Our kids learn and enjoy school.
We had some apprehension about our kids adjusting to a new school where they knew few students. It couldn’t have gone better for them. Everyone was exceptionally welcoming. Our kids like their teachers, made new friends, got involved in extracurricular activities (theater and sports) and are successfully challenged academically.
There’s high parent engagement and we have benefited from the “Parent University” events which provide opportunities to connect and learn about topics around our children’s development in and out of school.
