The Miami Valley School Reviews

My daughter has attended MVS since Kindergarten. She is now in 6th grade and I could not have asked for a better immersive learning environment to inspire her education. Every single teacher has truly known my child, cared deeply about her, and supported getting the best out of her, scholastically and emotionally. Equal development of EQ & IQ! The entire faculty lives the Core Values of Integrity, Grit, Kindness, and Celebration; holding all students to take ownership and model those values in their daily work and interactions. MVS is a community of highly engaged families, collectively wanting the best for their sons or daughters. We feel blessed to be part of this community and grateful that our daughter has had this amazing experience. I am confident that she will be a leader of tomorrow fueled by her educational foundation from MVS. Bottom line, I highly recommend The Miami Valley School!

This is the best school in town. I went to MVS and send my two children there. The faculty are excellent and dedicated. Many come from all over the world to teach there. Classes are small, engaging, and challenging. No one falls through the cracks. There are no cracks. MVS students have the highest standardized test scores in Dayton and the best college placements. MVS alumni attend the best colleges and become highly achieving global citizens. MVS was founded to provide a world-class independent college prep school in Dayton. If you want an education for your children that is as good or better than the top ranked private schools in the nation, then look at MVS. If you are looking for a supportive environment where your kids will be encouraged and expected to engage in many activities, then MVS is for you. If you want a diverse environment, MVS has the most ethnic and religious diversity in town by all objective measures. Everyone is welcome!
Our family has been attending MVS for 11 years . We have 5 children who benefit most from the exemplary teachers! Despite their very different personalities and strengths, I feel like each of our children are known, loved and valued. The parents are also wonderful! People want to know each other and are eager to help teachers and each other in any way possible. The music department is amazing as is art. While the number of sports offered is limited, it's great that ANYONE may participate! This has inspired my children to try new things and I know that would not have been possible in a larger environment.
