Mount Vernon-Ruth (MVR) Elementary is a small, community-oriented school located in rural Rutherford County, North Carolina. In July of 2001, Mount Vernon Elementary School and Ruth Elementary School merged, combining the two communities. Both communities joined hands to work together to support the children of Mount Vernon-Ruth Elementary. MVR Elementary is home of the Lions where we believe that all students are leaders. MVR is a Title 1 school serving students in Pre-k through grade five. With a warm and inviting atmosphere, MVR welcomes all students and their families. We have an average of 230 students and 50 staff members that make up the Mount Vernon-Ruth school community.
