For many years I've had issues with this school and the district in general. It all started when I wished to transfer back to public high school after a year at private school.

I am not an easy fan of public education but I have found MVHS to be excellent. Academically they provide opportunity for students to excel and the teachers are superb. I would recommend the district to anyone seeking a quality school.

Mill Valley is an excellent school for kids who want to learn - like any school. Don't think they don't have their share of drug problems but the officials work hard to combat this. Help for L.D. students is excellent!
