ABOUT OUR SCHOOL

Moreno Valley High School is committed to serving the community through access to high value programs and improving the lives of students from a variety of ethnic and cultural backgrounds. The body of educators is proactively involved in developing systems of support that promote greater academic gains for ALL learners. MVHS has developed a coherent school wide focus around specific instructional strategies such as Growth Mindset and The Viking Way valuing the ideas of being Respectful, Responsible, and Resilient, along with being recognized as being an AVID National Demonstration School. 

Moreno Valley High School received a California PBIS Coalition Gold Award for 2022. These accolades were given for excellence in the measurement of fidelity, as well as for implementing the core features of Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports. MVHS has worked diligently to maximize academic and social behavioral outcomes for ALL students. 

In addition to those honors, we were recognized as a Partnership for 21st Century Learning Exemplar School in November 2018. MVHS joins an elite professional learning community focused on 21st century learning, and their stories provide educators, policymakers, and communities a variety of models to draw from and be inspired by. To receive this recognition, we had to show evidence of commitment to college, career, and life readiness, educational support systems and sustainable design, proof of engaged learning approaches, equitable student access to 21st century learning, evidence of student acquisition of 21st century knowledge and skills, and finally proof of partnerships for sustainable success. 

Our most recent honor was received in 2022 when we were given the California Pivotal Practice Program award in recognition for the social emotional well-being of our students within the Building Assets and Reducing Risk (BARR) program, which focuses on strategies and supports for our most at-risk students.
