Duvvoori started attending MMS as a preschooler and is one of approximately 300 students from across the country accepted into the program this year and recognized by Davidson for their exceptional academic promise. 

“MMS has given me a rounded education,” comments Duvvoori, “that encourages enthusiasm in all subjects, even in areas that I otherwise wouldn’t have been exposed to, like performing arts, which has made me a confident public speaker. The teachers are all so dedicated that they have shown me the real excitement in their subjects, beyond the grades and worksheets.”
