Every student is unique.
So why are so many schools exactly the same? One isn’t.
At The Miami Valley School we are independent in both our teaching and learning, as well as in our thinking and doing. For 50 years our students have enjoyed the freedom to explore their world in a community that encourages them to discover how to express themselves in it. Although we support challenging academics built on a foundation of integrity and grit, teachers here do more than prepare students to score well on a standardized test. They empower students to do their best academically as well as to be their best selves personally – to discover their true passion and purpose, and to responsibly pursue it with compassion and intellectual excellence.
It’s why students don’t just come to The Miami Valley School.
Here, they become.

While the COVID-19 pandemic provided new challenges for MVS in the spring of 2020, our faculty and staff demonstrated their agility and their commitment to supporting MVS students by pivoting to remote learning. Under our remote learning model, MVS continued to be responsive to the needs of our families, demonstrating the same individualized care and support as we do on campus. Please watch the accompanying video to hear what MVS parents have to say about our remote learning model.

Take a Tour of Our Campus
Making a difference on our campus and in our community
As new parents, we knew we had chosen the right place for our children when our third grade daughter was reading Shakespeare, taking multiple immersive field trips, and singing Hindi in the shower – all in the first few months of attending MVS!

Immersion Method at
The Miami Valley School
The MVS Immersion Method reflects our shared beliefs of how all students learn best. It is our articulation of the best practices of education, founded on the principles of deep student experience and tailored to meet the needs of the individual learner. It dispels the notion that the principle role of a teacher is to provide information, and it confidently proclaims that students learn more thoroughly via actual experience than through teacher-centric content delivery.
Social and Emotional Learning
By creating a safe and supportive environment, our students learn to show empathy for others, manage conflict, and respect each other’s differences. They also know their voice is heard and supported when they need it most. Two on-campus counselors, one health teacher, and all teachers who also serve as advisors are up to date in their professional development on how to guide the ever-changing needs of our students. The SEL mindset and practices are woven through everything we do.
As an educator in independent schools for thirty years, it was clear to me immediately that the joy in learning at MVS is deeply embedded in the culture of the school.”
