Putnam Valley Central School District Reviews

Putnam Valley is like a regular school, it has its positives and negatives. Color Wars was absolutely epic until they stopped allowing us to run into the gym and torment the underclassmen at the entrance. Other than that it is still pretty cool. Another awesome thing is that we increase our offered classes all the time. In the past few years, we've added new technology classes which is great for people who want to pursue engineering or STEM. Moreover, the academics I'd say are pretty good. In my personal opinion, At Putnam Valley, you really decide where you want to be on the academic scale. If you want to be high, the classes aren't overpoweringly hard that having a high GPA should be the end of your life. But also, if you do fall off the scale, you fall hard. Also, diversity is very low, a very large portion of PV is white. We're kinda bomb at sports though :). Overall, Putnam Valley has been annoying sometimes, but I'd say I don't regret spending my high school career here.

I am a high school senior at PVH. I am pleased with the Academics. I was able to attend Tech Center for Engineering. I enjoyed this class very much. The one thing I would change is the school lunches. The kids are always hungry even after purchasing two lunches.
Putnam Valley was a great school to be in. The teachers cared very much about our education as students as well as our personal lives. Each student was able to have their own laptop no matter what their financial situation was like. Lastly we had an outstanding variety of clubs and sports to choose from that helped us get to know one another more.
