How did MVS become?

Over fifty years ago, a few passionate families envisioned an education that had yet to exist in Dayton. The Miami Valley School was born out of the desire to provide experiential learning in an intimate environment where the educational focus was directed to the individual needs of the student. That vision became the MVS culture and personality.

When you walk onto the MVS campus today, you’ll experience our joyful personality. You’ll see that our culture celebrates everyone for what they bring to the table. We believe in scholarship. Our accomplished teachers take their job seriously and have high expectations of their students. We have a diverse student body – we embrace and respect different heritages and learn from one another. And transformation happens. In our safe environment, students learn from their mistakes and become empowered to take chances again and again.

Come visit and have your child spend the day in class. There is no better way to experience MVS than through our students’ and teachers’ stories. We welcome you to the MVS admission process and we will guide you every step of the way with personal attention. We’ll unfold the many reasons why this is the best educational opportunity for your child.

Welcome! We look forward to starting the conversation.
