The Miami Valley School Reviews

The teachers are caring and passionate and will go out of their way to help. I love immersion, because you get to immerse yourself in different countries and culture. The students here care about their futures and work hard to make sure that they're prepared. MVS has been a welcome change in my life. I have become a compassionate global citizen! I have also developed lasting relationships and I'm prepared for college!

I loved being at The Miami Valley School, I completed my last two years here I wouldn't have wanted it to spend it anywhere else. Before MVS I attended a public school, Northmont, and the switch from public to private was a great decision my mom made. The academics, the family atmosphere you can't find anywhere else. The teachers at MVS are what makes the school so special, they genuinely care for all the students, to your grades and your well being. I now feel that I more prepared for college, academically and mentally because of MVS. I'm happy to say that I am a proud MVS Alum.
Honestly, there is a lot of improvement needed in most of the extracurricular activities, but everyone is extremely passionate and makes the best of it. Because of the size of my school, there are a lot of spacial issues and it requires a lot of patience and adaptation. Luckily, everyone is great at that. This is especially true in the performing arts department, such as A Cappella, musical, and plays because most of the time it requires practicing in gyms, cafeterias, halls, or sometimes just any empty room. It takes serious dedication and passion for each activity to just stay afloat, but most of the time it thrives!
