School Tours are Happening. Help Us to Spread the Word.

MVHS has begun to host on-campus tours for prospective families, and we have FOUR tours remaining. The purpose of the tours is to give potential incoming students and parents an in-depth overview of what MVHS has to offer ahead of the VUSD Magnet School Application window, which opens in January.

The tours include a brief informational session led by MVHS administration, followed by a student-led tour of the campus. See the flyer attached here for more details.

The next tour is Tuesday, January 11th, at 4pm in the MVHS Library.

*Tour participants must wear a mask while on campus

Seniors: Fill out the FAFSA or Dream Act Application!

Seniors! Click here to find out more information about filling out the FAFSA or Dream Act application.

All seniors are encouraged to do this, regardless of family income status. All too often, students hesitate to apply for college because they think it is cost-prohibitive, and on the flip side, some students think their family makes "too much" to qualify for any financial aid. Frequently, this is not the case. MVHS encourages ALL seniors to fill out the FAFSA or DreamAct application to find out what financial aid for college exists for them.
