12 Parent Reviews for Mill Valley High School

Superb academics with growing elective choices. The only thing I'd like to see added is a full orchestra program. We moved here for the schools and thier building on pillars of character, full time nurses in each building and overall positive atmosphere.

As to the administration I feel they are on the right track, however, more effort ...  Read more

We moved from Chicago during my Son's sophomore year. He was warmly welcomed into Mill Valley, adjusted extremely well, made a lot of great friends, did well academically & participated in several sports programs. The staff truly helped to make our choice to move to Kansas a wise decision. The counselors ...  Read more

Mill Valley is an excellent choice for students and parents. It is very competitive, academically, with other high schools in Johnson County. Some of the best teachers in the region work in the school district. My child loves the school community and is challenged to do her best each and every day. ...  Read more
