- About MMS
The Mount Madonna School (MMS) Model United Nations (MUN) Club participated in its first meet of the 2012-2013 school year November 9-11 at Stanford University. The current student group is the largest and most participatory delegation MMS has had yet, with fifteen high school students, anchored by senior club mentor Kavi Duvvoori.
“This was my fifth and final year in MUN,” notes Duvvoori. “I co-founded the club when I was in eighth grade with my friend Zach. I have managed it since then, with some parent support. I have represented all manner of countries and characters, with specialization in dictators and genocidal regimes, and was able to bring this trend to its culmination this year.

On a recent foggy morning, in a forest clearing near Mount Madonna School (MMS), 35 high school students dressed in military-style fatigues, or even shorts, t-shirts and jeans, huddle in two opposing, waist-deep, muddy trenches. Nearby, other students peer watchfully from behind boulders and trees, scanning the surrounding terrain. Students can be overheard discussing in low voices, attack and defensive strategies, all the while listening for the signal to commence ‘battle’.
Several Mount Madonna School 11th and 12th grade students spent Monday's ‘election eve’ engaging with supporters of incumbent Congressman Sam Farr (D, Monterey) at an event at the Monterey Cookhouse. The students were invited to attend as Farr’s special guests, and were accompanied by MMS high school social studies teacher Ward Mailliard, Farr has represented the 20th Congressional District in Congress since 1993, and was reelected by a huge margin on Tuesday.
