  • I've been going to Pleasant Valley since kindergarten. Despite what everyone else may say, it's a wonderful school. Sure it has its ups and downs, but so does any school. They offer a quality education and are home to some very bright and helpful teachers.

  • The teachers are less than able to teach, and a lot of students are wrongfully accused of violating policies, there is a regulated dress policy that is ridiculous, but the sports teams are great!

  • Alot of people in the school! This school needs work and needs updates and save more for acedemic reasons not for sports!
