Pleasant Valley High School (PV) offers a variety of ways to prep the students for college. I found myself enjoying classes, but also struggling with them, which taught me "how to fight" in a class and seek different ways of succeeding. The transition into college is not easy, neither was it perfect, but I do believe that PV offered me enough academic opportunities to "dive into" college. If I were to give someone an advice before going to PV, it would be to be patient with yourself. PV is an extremely competitive school, where most students are at the top, rather than average. Sometimes, I did find myself feeling "below average", but the school provides tools to help each student grow in his/her own way. This would be the only complaint I have about the school- it is more competitive than necessary, but again, most students are at the top because of that.

PV is a school that has great academics and many clubs. The school tries hard for student engagement with spirit week, Power for Parker, award ceremonies, congratulating students over announcements, diversity months, and interactive posters. The racial diversity is a bit lacking, but I feel that is more due to the area the school is in rather than racial bullying from students.
This school was great because it helped prepare myself for college and the real world. I went to Pleasant Valley my entire life, and I met some of my life long friends there. It was a family in the classroom and out of the field as well. The teachers there cared for me, and wanted me to do the best I possibly could. I received an ample amount of help, and learned a lot of basic skills.
