Pleasant Valley Community School District Reviews

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.

I graduated a year ago and will be starting my sophomore year at the U of Iowa in a couple weeks. After meeting many friends at Iowa, I realized how much Pleasant Valley helped prepare me for college. The school does a great job of encouraging students to become involved. The music department is great and most academic departments are fantastic—the English department is definitely a favorite with students, as they truly care about the students and making class interesting. I started high school by hating to read and write and graduated with honors English classes and even published articles on the school’s news website. Don’t let your child miss out on taking a class with the following amazing teachers: Mr. Spangenberg, Ms. Dyer, Mr. Fry, Mr. Gaffney, Ms. Dixon, Ms. Berger.
The band program is amazing!! It’s the largest high school band in Iowa with over 300 members. Pleasant valley high offers many college classes for free through Scott community college. Sometimes there are a few crazy students or teachers but that’s usual. Pleasant valley high also has a great art program. I took art 1, ceramics, and advanced ceramics. They also have an art club and ceramics club.
