Pleasantville High School Reviews

Solid academics. Grading systems tended to be inconsistent and questionable at times. By this, some students may find themselves with grade point averages that are not indicative of his or her quality as a student. Sports allowed most students to be involved and some of the teams were among the best they competed against. The school itself is very well maintained and extremely safe. There is a good balance between freedom and restrictions for students. Bullying was not prominent and it was always discouraged and reprimanded. The location of the school is very convenient and in a nice area.

When I first moved to United Stated i Moved to pleasantiville, Nj. I was a sophomore and I meet great teachers. The ESL program is great and the teacher are awesome. The teachers, guards, and administration help as much as they can. I learned a lot from the teachers I had. I think it is a great school and it has a diversity students.
My experience at Pleasantville High School was a great experience wish I could replay the years again. I say that because it was a fun school and I got along well with all my teachers friends and other students.Another thing is that we had awesome pep rallies for spirit week or before a big football game and those I will never forget. Also, I played football for 3 years and that was a great experience I can say football changed my life. Football changed my life because it made me a better man as far as being on time, getting stronger, and learning how to communicate with people better. In addition, I believe any kid that goes there will like it. If something could change about Pleasantville High School I would say the location and the size so it can be bigger and a lot more people could go there.
