At the moment the school is falling apart at the seams. We are low on funds and lacking the majority of our staff, causing mass confusion at moments. Also, the students themselves are struggling to reintegrate into a school year that requires focused attention and participation after the blase attitudes during virtual learning.
Pleasant Valley School District is a very diverse school because of the area it is in. Most of the faculty is very friendly and makes classes fun. Mostly the negative parts revolve around the decision-making and organization of the school board.
Students of color constantly face racism and discrimination from their peers and sometimes even teachers. LGBTQ+ students also face hate from their peers. This school is so gross, I really don't recommend anybody going there unless you are a straight white male, then if you are you'll fit right in.
I met a lot of great peers at Pleasant Valley but administration did little to hear our voices and make us feel safe and like we mattered. We were often treated rudely by teachers. Administrators constantly said they would make changes but in the end just cared about their reputation.
I like Pleasant Valley High School because of the wide range of opportunity they provide. There are many different classes that set you up for college and it is truly a well appreciated experience!
Pleasant Valley High School has a very welcoming environment, and most of the teachers that work there are great. Most teachers are able to help you both academically and emotionally. Although the basics of the school are great, I feel that the administration takes an off road approach, and sometimes that hurts the students' ability to learn the best they can.
I love Pleasant Valley. I feel as if I have gotten a great education there. I am so excited to graduate and pursue a career in education. I love to help people and Pleasant Valley has done so much to help me succeed.
I love Pleasant Valley School DIstrict. I have gone to this school since kindergarten, and I am currently a freshman. The teachers and staff are amazing, and through this difficult time (covid-19) they have taken as many precautions as they could to keep us safe.
School is what you make of it, overall I had a good high school experience. The principal Mr. Triolo is terrific but some teachers are difficult, the children are mostly very polite but you know some are not the greatest.
I managed to make a lot of great friends, but there were a lot of problems, such as bullying, drug use, etc
Overall, I feel I had a great experience with Pleasant Valley High School. I have been at Pleasant Valley my whole life, and I'm sure there are schools out there that are much better than mine but I would not know from personal experience. I felt the education system was very good, or at least students have the opportunity to receive a great education if they apply themselves. However, the school did feel a little dead to me and many of my fellow classmates. Despite the relentless efforts of our principle and other staff to promote school pride and culture, our school lacked the excitement or fire that I feel is necessary in receiving a good education.
Pleasant Valley is a school I would never want to return to. Teachers and guidance counselors were often unhelpful and weren’t the best at their job. Many of the teachers were unwelcoming and were their only to do their job, not to help the kids. During the coronavirus the school did nothing for the seniors except make a video of the teachers. They put no effort into showing us that they supported us.
Overall Pleasant Valley was a good school. Nothing amazing, but also not the worst school in the country. I just wish there was more student involvement, pep rallies are very boring and mostly everyone leave before they happen, are student section at football games never cheers, and we missed out on events that most schools have like powder puff, senior trips, etc. As for academics its a hit or miss on wether you will get a great teacher and learn a lot or a teacher that is never there. I can’t say I hate Pleasant Valley because it gave me my best friend and high school memories i’ll never forget, but also I feel like we did not get the full high school experience while going here.
It was pretty great. A lot of fun teachers and a diversed community! They help the community greatly and treats every student with love and respect.
At the time in which I attended I experienced a phenomenal STEM education from some of the best teachers I have ever met.
In addition to graduating from Pleasant Valley High School myself my older two children have as well. My youngest is a Senior all set to graduate in 2020. The Covid-19 outbreak has caused him to miss out on a lot of Senior activities and miss out on memories that could have been created for his lifetime. I hope PVHS will plan to make up as many events that they can when this is resolved.
Overall education was decent with the AP classes, there's many regulations which sorta ruined my high school experience. The dress code was awful.
