I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to go to such a great school. The teachers and administration are very welcoming and polite. Obviously, Pleasantville is a small town so there was not much diversity and that was okay. Everyone was given the opportunity to take part in clubs and activities. In bigger schools, it is common for only select students to be involved. Everyone was also able to take part in sporting events. Sporting events are very widely supported in our town and I love that. Overall, I was pleased with Pleasantville schools.

Pleasantville is a very nice school to attend. Great people, great community. I have attended since Pre-school and have constantly had more and more people moving here. I think it is very welcoming.
The administration is highly visible in school. They know everyone's name (as well as the parents). The counselor won the Golden Apple award for being an outstanding teacher. He was very approachable and willing to listen when needed. He helped gear students into classes that would best fit their needs, especially those students considered at risk. We have a no tolerance policy for bullying. There is a dress code, mostly enforced. Attendance, we have a closed campus but it isn't unusual to see kids leave to go to the convenience store (Casey's). Some get in trouble while others do not. We have a ineligibility policy. It is more of a suggestion than enforced. If a student gets a D or F they can not participate in a school function. Depends on the kid. The quarterback gets a break, the band kid doesn't.
