School Reviews

5  
MHS in Castro Valley is a small private school that opened in 2015 and is the second campus of MHMS in Union City. This school started with 22 students and has grown to over 100. My child completed kindergarten, and I am beyond pleased with the teachers, administrators, and staff at this campus. Kindergarten teacher, Ms. Mary, and assistant teacher, Ms. Rachel, an excellent duo, helped build a strong foundation in vital subjects and developed and enforced proper classroom rules aiding behavioral issues. This staff here is first class and always goes above and beyond. Never had I had a question go unanswered.
