Calhoun County is a great place to raise a family and a great place to send your kids to school. I personally go to Pleasant Valley High School which is my sixth school. Out of all those school, I find that Pleasant Valley is one of the best. Most of the teachers actually get up in front of the class and teach. You wouldn't believe how many teachers at other school just give you busy work in a textbook instead of teaching to the class. Now don't get me wrong, not all the teachers at Pleasant Valley are role model teachers but at least they try their best. One thing I wish Pleasant Valley would work on is getting students more involve such as adding more clubs the students would like to join such as art clubs and reading maybe?

The school could be a good school if diversity and equality was pushed. You have some good administrative people still there like the freshman counselor and Ms. Goodman. Losing Ms.Chrissey and the previous principal who got promoted also has hurt the school. Better preparation for the Act should also be a better considered change!
They are very well put together and appreciate students, parents, and facilities. They are very involved with their students lives and will help at any means necessary.
