Our Elementary School
MSV has been changing the lives of young people since 2006. Over the years of working with preschoolers and kindergarteners, we decided to start working on an elementary school curriculum for after-schoolers, catered to our students that graduated from MSV, but wanted to keep learning the language. During 2020, families requested that we expand our levels, thus we started to teach our elementary school curriculum formally. Since then, MSV decided to open its second location with the purpose of providing families the option to stay until 5th grade.
MSV is a private elementary school with everything you would expect from a regular private school and of course, more! We pride ourselves on our culture of positivity, caring for our students and community, and keeping the Spanish Immersion alive. This nurturing environment fosters our students' love of learning, which fuels their academic success. Our phenomenal teachers provide an extraordinary education using our exemplary curriculum. All our students benefit from our integrated approach to teaching character and robust curriculum every school day.
Our mission in providing elementary-level education is to form a community of love and learning by promoting our values, love for nature, passion for our wonderful country, and academic excellence.
