About Us

Mattole Valley Charter School believes in honoring individual education choices and is committed to providing an innovative public education environment for students, their parents, and teachers by empowering them to collaboratively create learning opportunities which will help students develop into responsible and contributing members of society.

MVCS believes in giving students, parents, and teachers the freedom to make responsible and effective decisions and implement educational plans, by providing them with multiple tools, resources, and programs.

MVCS believes that the selection of educational plans and opportunities is the right of parents and students with the support of their Independent Study Teacher.

Mattole Valley Charter School (MVCS) opened on September 17, 1998 with the goal to serve students seeking a non-traditional educational setting. Over the years, students and their families have expressed the following reasons why they chose to transfer from the traditional educational setting to Mattole Valley Charter School:

  • flexible school schedule
  • small learning environment
  • social atmosphere
  • special education services
  • graduation credit deficit
  • personalized learning opportunity
  • small teacher-to-student ratio
  • individualized pacing
