Pleasant Valley Community School District Reviews

I'm a senior. I've generally been involved in music and the arts in high school, and we have very very strong arts programs. In upcoming renovations we will have extensive additions including a larger gym, a performing arts center to be separated from the theatrical arts space, and classrooms. I think these changes will better accommodate the high achieving programs which have not always been well recognized in the school.
Review Pleasant Valley Community School District
Pleasant Valley, while very good is not great. The school does place a lot of emphasis on sports. It does not give much recognition to the academic achievements of the students.

Out of all of the departments the math department is hands down the one that needs the most improvement. The staff does a poor job teaching advanced mathematics to the students.
The school is very nice, and has a great education program. The only problem is that they spend a lot of money on fixing things and trying to make the school bigger to accommodate people, so sometimes certain areas of the school get a little left out, for example the girls' soccer team or the art department.
