Pleasant Valley High School Reviews
The school has resource that students need for school works during school hour. The staff are very nice to everyone and do their best to provide information to their students in class.
I had a very difficult time socially as teachers would encourage popularity contests within the classroom and very few teachers were truly willing to help chalking up any failures to only fall on the student. This was very distracting to my classes and studies. Furthermore, they prepped me for community college but I always planned to go to a four year. Once I was in a four year university, my grades significantly dropped due to being unprepared in high school.
My experience at Pleasant Valley High School has been amazing. There are lots of different groups to get involved with, and the academics/sports/theatre departments all receive an endless amount of love and support from the community.
Pleasant Valley High School has been, for many years, at the top of the city of Chico's school district's food chain for both academic and athletic achievement. However, what often goes ignored are the visual and performing arts programs also available at the school. For example, the theater program is forced to put together several performances throughout the school year with pocket change. All money is directed towards the admittingly talented, but over-hyped football team. If funds could be more evenly distributed amongst all programs at Pleasant Valley, students, such as those who struggle in athletics or academics, could feel included.
I love the school. Although it needs diversity and the admin need to be more productive with enforcing their school policies.
I love Pleasant Valley High School because of the teachers. I’d like to see more students involved in the community.
I had a relatively good experience at PV. The only downfalls were that the school administration focused too much on sports involvement/funding and not education and that the campus is more or less filthy due to all the garbage.
if you are an athlete you will have a great time at PV, but if you are not be prepared to have none of the teachers or staff care about you. A lot of the teachers, especially the english teachers, suck up to the athletes and let them do whatever they want. Social hierarchy is crazy at this school and only the popular people matter at this school.
Great school with great teachers. Very dedicated people work there. School life is decent, with available extra curricular activities that provide things to do outside of class. I would say there is an average amount of classes etc available. There is a fair amount of diversity in students, I liked most of the teachers as well, and most importantly I felt very safe. Of the schools in Chico, I think PV was the best all around school.
PVHS is a pretty good school. I liked all 4 years that I attended. School spirit is pretty good. I wish more people dressed up during spirit days or that someone could have done something about the bathrooms or the giant puddles that would build up during rainy days. I think that the teachers are very nice and most of them did a good job being involved with students lives. The classes are informative and for the most part interesting.
The school spirit is phenomenal. If you're looking for a school that is full of spirit and energy, you are at the right place. Games and rallies especially present the school's spirit. If you are looking for a school with ethnic diversity, this is not the place for you. Pleasant Valley does not present much culture on the campus.
PV High School is awesome! We have an incredible sports program, beautiful grounds, and great teachers!
I really love the staff and students at this school along with the many opportunities the school has to offer. The school has many great sports and clubs to get students involved. Although I do wish the campus could be upgraded.
I feel challenged in my courses. Teachers are responsive and caring. School culture is positive. Athletic department is strong. Friendly staff. Safe campus and town. Community based feel.
Some solid teachers. Graduated back in 2013 and all I can say is that without this place I never would of truly fallen in love with film-making and wouldn't of started going to film school. Mr. Peck is what I owe that too.
There are great educational opportunities, a wonderful staff, many clubs and activities, and a vivacious student life. Not only is it in a safe area, but there are many fun places to go nearby such as hiking trails, the creek, downtown, and lots of cheap food places.
Pleasant Valley High School is very nice. I enjoyed my freshman year. The academics are challenging and the teachers are very nice. I wish they had a serious dance team and had more opportunities for school-wide community projects. The sports teams are very successful and the school spirit is amazing.
