Welcome to Mountain Valley High School


Welcome to Mountain Valley High School home of the Falcons. Mountain Valley is located at the gateway to the western Maine mountain region in Rumford, Maine. Our school serves students grades 9-12 from Rumford, Mexico, Byron and Roxbury. It is one of 10 schools that make up Western Foothills Regional School Unit 10. We have a student population of approximately 440 students and have a highly qualified staff of 42 professionals. MVHS is a fully accredited high school, certified by NEASC.

Mountain Valley was established in 1989 by combining traditional rivals, the Mexico Pintos and the Rumford Panthers. In that short amount of time MVHS has crafted a rich tradition of excellence in the classroom, on the stage and with our athletics programs. MVHS is filled with “Falcon Pride”. We offer students a well rounded education placing an emphasis on holding all students to high Academic, Civic and Social standards in an effort to prepare them for College, Career and Citizenship. Mountain Valley has a wide variety of course offering to meet every student’s individual needs and we provide a wealth extra/co-curricular activities in an effort to provide an opportunity for every child to be involved with the school community. We are very proud of our students accomplishments past, present and future.

Mountain Valley is a special place and I encourage you to stop by the next time you’re in Rumford.

Respectfully Yours,

Matthew P. Gilbert
