    My son attended for a short time and we were very disappointed in this school. My son has an IEP and MVHS did not help him the special ed teacher was very harsh and did not offer my son any help...she was pushing for him to go into a level 4 day treatment setting. He has since transferred to another online school and is doing very well. He has a B average and gets a lot of positive reinforcement and feels very successful now.
