Pleasantville has been an experience of learning and growth. It is a place where I have learned to grow up. Attending school here my whole life, Pleasantville has become apart of me. The importance of helping others and giving back to the community have become part of my daily actions. I learned to stay open to every opportunity presented to me, as they don't come around often. In addition, I learned to never judge a book by its cover, there are tons of people that you have a lot more in common with then you think: It allows you to see things from a different perspective. Pleasantville's diversity exposed me to different cultures that I carry with me every day. I hope to take all the positive and negatives I have experienced in Pleasantville and use them to benefit myself as a person and the community around me.
Great, safe town. Great independent theatre and good restaurants. Fantastic farmers market and summer music festival but they are quite expensive. Not enough diversity in culture & ethnicity.
