I've lived here for more than 20 yrs and have only the best things to say about the Pville school district. I'm a parent of a teen with special needs and one without. Both have received excellent educations from caring, committed teachers and staff.
Pville's proximity to Rock. State Park adds much to love. Numerous trails for running, walking, and horseback riding make the din of modern life fade away...and during the Coronavirus, a relatively (when people wear their masks) safe place to be.
While we have a thriving farmer's market, we're still behind in suburban conservation. Too many lawns...not enough wildflowers and native plants.
We lack diversity. Too many bland Toll Bros.-type complexes and too little affordable housing to attract a range of people.
People are kind here, stepping in when neighbors experience illness, death, or difficulty.
Plenty of opp. to volunteer for those who are willing to coach, garden, feed the hungry, etc.
Big +...Lucy's for live music!

Pleasantville is a very quiet town, there’s nothing going on unless school is open. People are really friendly. Good restaurants, pretty nice area to go for a walk or a run. I have been living in Pleasantville most of my life, and barely hear something crazy has happened. There’s a college, some college bars. Nice life is pretty quiet and peaceful.
Pleasantville is a friendly and safe town filled with community events and arts and music. Pleasantville also has a sought after Farmers Market for the health conscious. Great place to visit and even better to live!
