I love Pleasant Valley High School because I have been going there since sixth grade. It is not the smallest school but it is also not the largest school either. It is average size and has lots of nice people. Pleasant Valley has a wonderful Track and Field team as well. The teachers are all very nice and everyone is taught what they are needed to know to be prepared and ready for college. I love the classes, the sports, and the clubs we have at our school. Every activity is fun and wonderful. As I am a senior, I plan to enjoy my last year and make it the best it can be.

My experience while attending Pleasant Valley has been positive. The teachers are helpful and care about the students. The school participates in the dual-enrollment program, which helps the participating students in pursuing their academics for college. There are active sports programs and other club activities for students to participate in.
Pleasant Valley is a small school, so we all know each other. Since our high school is seventh through twelfth grade, the younger classes learn how to fit in the high school at an earlier age. Thankfully, our senior classes always watch after the younger students and volunteer to help out. I love my school and am proud to be a Raider!
