I think MV is a great school with high calibre teachers and high expectations of the students. Success is expected and achieved.

I noticed that all of the postings condemning the school's shameful handling of the religious graduation have been removed. This public school supported a religiously-themed graduation and made pariah out of the poor student who tried to put a stop to it.

Academics are stronger at the high school than middle school. High emphasis on TAKS. Band program is really outstanding - in past three years, they have been bringing home numerous first division, best in class and marching caption trophies. The directorship is strong. There is no orchestra program ...  Read more

My daughter is a big reader, has extensive vocabulary. She is constantly put-down for using 'big words' (most are not really that 'big'. The intellect of her classmates (she is in advanced classes) is very low, as it seems the general population of area. Only language taught is Spanish or ASL, Spanish ...  Read more
