MARVILLE VIRTUAL SCHOOL

 We are the new Maryville City virtual school, opening for the 2022-2023 school year!  We are “blazing our own path to excellence”!

MARYVILLE VIRTUAL SCHOOL (MVS) is a 2-12 school where students predominantly learn asynchronously from home. This is not a re-packaging of the MCS COVID "digital" instruction where students Zoomed with teachers for instruction. MVS is a true virtual school with on-line curriculum and instruction with weekly assignments that can be completed on the student's own schedule.  

Teachers will support student learning through videoed instruction, assignment feedback, email, and video-conferencing, as needed. At the MVS school building, we will have areas set up for students to receive in-person support and tutoring, as well as an assessment center for any mandatory on-site testing.
