Pleasant Valley Community School District Reviews

There are few school districts as good as Pleasant Valley's. The teachers care, the student body is surprisingly diverse, and the academics are challenging. The only reason I would not give my school 5 stars comes from my experience during the Coronavirus pandemic, where it became painfully clear that this school cares more for its athletic department than it does for the health and safety of its students.

I attended PVHS from the second semester of my Freshman year to the end of my Junior year. I wouldn’t change anything from my experience in this district because I felt welcomed to the district since day one. When I started attending this school I did not speak English so I had to take an ESL class. I find it amazing that when I got to the school my English level was low, however, since year one my English knowledge increased. By the end of my Junior year, I was able to fluently speak English. My reading, writing, and listening English proficiency improved thanks to all the help and support I was provided by all the members of the PVHS district
PV schools are unmatched. My 3 kids all love their experiences at PV. We have one grad, one sophomore, and one entering the jr high, coming from Hopewell. The teachers are the most wonderful people and truly care. I am always impressed at the level of mastery these teachers have at what they teach and how well they deliver that knowledge. While 2 of my 3 are into sports and the athletic programs have been quite good, I love that the schools have so many other ways to be involved in activities outside of athletics. My oldest was never very outgoing and was encouraged to be part of the high school’s publications, which absolutely changed her high school experience and helped her grow into an academic leader. The journalism teacher is pretty incredible. My middle started high school last year and was terrified, but finished it loving science and English, two subjects where she previously struggled, because of her teachers. We couldn’t be more pleased.
