What Sets The Miami Valley School Apart?
We summon all students to their full potential of mind, body and spirit by inviting and encouraging them to seek distinction in their endeavors.
We believe students thrive from opportunities to experience life and to learn while broadening their knowledge of self and kindling intellectual passion and curiosity.
Our school insists upon and fosters integrity, respect, personal responsibility, teamwork, and empathy for others–qualities of character that are inherent in leadership development.
Celebration of Individual Gifts
We believe fostering appreciation for unique talents, capabilities, and differences nourishes individual growth and enriches the community.
We value a nurturing environment where each student is known and loved, and finds joy in belonging.
