  • I don't know about now but wen i was there from 91-94 it was also garbage. teachers also did not give a damn. i had one teacher read the newspaper during the whole period and another used to mark me in then let me leave. it was like a big hang out. maybe this was the reason i dropped out? if i had stronger mentors maybe it would ave been different.

  • As a student of mvhs i personally think that this school could have better teachers who care for there students. also i quote, "each child needs a voice in this school".i hope that as this years 2008-2009 school season only changes for the better.

  • This school is a piece of crap. It isn't good at all. They lie to you over and over again and they don't care about the students. They don't do their jobs and if they do their jobs, they do it incorrectly.
