MVWS is a progressive suburban school housed in a historical church building in the quiet neighborhood of Belmont Heights. Our relationship with Long Beach Parks and Recreation allows us to utilize four parks within walking distance for partial school days. Our school was recently one of six private schools in the country to be named a U.S. Department of Education Green Ribbon School for environmental sustainability, health and wellness, and STEM. We are located minutes from the beach, 1.5 hours to the desert, 2 hours to the mountains, and 30 minutes from a Waldorf high school. We have a diverse population, and we are focused on equitability and inclusion for people of all religions, races, ethnicities, sexual orientations, and gender identities/expressions. Our Village has a lot of heart, strong parent participation, and is centered on families, community, parent education, collaboration, and mutual respect.

MVWS is an Associate Member of AWSNA and a Developing Member of WECAN.

Our school has been operating since 2008 and programs include Baby & Me, Parent/Child, 2 Preschools, 2 Kindergartens, and Grades 1 – 8. We have an experienced faculty, a strong peer mentoring program, and together we study, listen, counsel, laugh, eat, and celebrate.
