At Maumee Valley every adult in the school assumes the role of mentor and nurturer; everyone pays attention to student needs and contributes to the vision and the school’s mission. Employee individuality is respected and everyone works collaboratively with colleagues and parents to achieve the school vision.
Everyone at Maumee Valley Country Day School is a learner and everyone is a teacher. Students, teachers, staff, and administrators value feedback and constructive suggestions and are always respectful of other’s ideas and points of view. Students regularly teach us about what they need, and about those things they are passionate about. Adults model learning by their commitment to their students and also by sharing their interests, skills, and passions.
Maumee Valley has a storied 130+ year history. Over the generations we’ve honored what is central to our mission by adapting to the demands of the times-- from the move to Toledo from upstate New York in 1884, to joining the country day school movement in 1934, to the admission of boys, to the open classrooms of the Lower School, to the creation of a Middle School, to the development of Winterim, and many other innovations, MVCDS has not shied away from difficult challenges or bold moves.
This is an exciting period of great innovation and change in the world of education. It is our time and our responsibility to revitalize and reinterpret our schools’ mission in light of the changing landscape around us. By focusing on Personal, Experiential, and Global education we will both honor our school’s great traditions and ensure its relevance and prosperity in the future.
