    We just started and feel good about our choice for high school. My son went to another "good" school (hard to get into and was just at the cut off of the gpa required) and because they were focused on the top of the class he floundered and was stressed and ended up with not so good gpa for college and received little support. It seems that MVA actually "teaches" imagine that? My daughter comes home with a writing project and they go through draft after draft refining and improving it over and over. It seems very diligent yet supportive. We are very impressed so far!

    My daughter has been extremely lucky to have had the opportunity to complete her 9th grade frm an outstanding school MVA! As she moves to grade 10 in MVA I would like to compliment Mr Heager and his entire team for their commitment and dedication towards providing quality education. May MVA always excel and reach greater heights. Best wishes Dipika

    I knew from the start that this was the right school for my daughter! The principal and teachers go above and beyond to ensure each student lives up to their potential. The principal personally greets students as they enter the building each day and knows every student by name which is a nice personal and professional touch!

    The quality of academic programs offered at MVA are diverse and challenging. The school offers extra tutoring for students that need the help(it's a requrement!) They keep the parents well informed of their child's progress and needs. There are not many sport activities available and the gym situation is tough. All in all it is a wonderful place. The teachers are first rate and the principal is a no nonsense yet kind and caring individual. This school has it all!!!
