Principal's Welcome

I would like to welcome back the staff and students to MVHS. I hope that you all have had a restful summer and are ready to start another excellent year. Over the summer, we shared that MVHS is an "A" rated high school in the states accountability system and earned five more distinctions to bring us to a total of 33 distinctions.
