MSNV is an incredible school that really does manage to get it all 'right.' I have one child who recently completely kindergarten, one in primary, and one entering the pre-primary class next year. Every teacher we have had has been phenomenal -- their approach is to value each child's uniqueness and challenge them appropriately. Even at the pre-school and kindergarten levels, they expose the children to science, art, geography and culture in a manner that has the children learning and absorbing lessons without even being aware of it. They cultivate confidence and joy in learning. The sense of community is inspiring, the teachers and staff inviting, and the campus beautiful. In addition, the before- and after- care programs are beyond excellent; I highly recommend this school to everyone I talk to. Check it out and fill out an application NOW!

6 years at school and still LOVING it! Two kids: elementary age and pre-school aged. Could not wait to move my younger kid over from day care at age 2! Everything you want: top notch teaching and facilities; diverse student and parent population and celebration of that diversity; caring parent and teacher collaborative community. If you are pairing pre-school or elementary school with any kind of care, you??ll find this school more than reasonably priced and worth more than every penny! Rare opportunity to get in this year due to opening of new campus in response to long wait lists in past.
BTW, MSNV is a NON-PROFIT, which is regularly audited. No way to "grab" money here - just dedicated, yet overworked [to keep overhead (i.e. tuitions) down], administrative staff.

We enrolled our kids this year and have been thrilled with this school. We have two children in the pre-school programs (called primary), and both classes are fantastic. The teaching staff really cares about each child and customizes a curriculum to each kid's specific needs. The administration is professional, warm, and responsive to parent's needs. The campus is gorgeous, well maintained, and a dreamland for recess and PE. Our son will move up to the school's elementary program next year, and we plan to enroll our third child in the pre-primary (2-3 year olds). The waiting list gets long because, but they're opening a new campus about five minutes away which will open about 70 new slots. We highly recommend this school!

Pros: Excellent education

Cons: Parking lot is cramped

I have kids 2-7 in MSNV, and the school is just wonderful. Yes, it is hard to get in (we were waitlisted for our first kid). But the teachers have been very supportive, loving yet firm, and can help your kids grow into respectful kids who are confident in themselves and in their abilities.

My daughter went here and - I cant say enough how special this place is. The admission is indeed hard as it is a very small school with a very high demand. especially for their pre-primary program which is one of the few - and maybe the only with this much enrichment and such expert staff for this age group
(toddlers 1.5-2.5).
My girl went all the way up through the equivalent of 1st grade here and this way of learning was so right for her. she loves school now and she is 15 and this was such a strong foundation. The private school value is unmatched
go ahead and compare. Most of them cost far more for far less. This place is magical.

Although the school appears nice, their application process is a thinly disguised money grab. There is no guarantee of acceptance, yet the application fee is - of course - non-refundable.

Once you apply, they claim they will bring the child in for an interview, which they never bother to schedule. What happens when you try to schedule that appointment? They can't be reached. Leave a message? They won't return it. Ask for your money back? They won't answer you.

This is a great way to teach ethics to kids, eh?
