As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

Serves a population of struggling students and lacks support from its charter, Pima County. The County advertises a teaching job that is "open continuously" on their website because they cannot keep teachers here (this is DESPITE better than average charter school pay & benefits). Classrooms can kindly be called cozy and are more accurately dangerously crowded when all the students do show up. Computers run ancient software; furniture consists of hand-me-downs from the County. A small staff and some of the teachers are exceptional but overall I'd avoid this place unless you are trying to toughen your kid up before sending them off to boot camp.

Fantastic school with great opportunities for the students! PVHS has a sensible, clearly understandable grading and credit system. Small class sizes make it easier to succeed. Students can earn HS credit for work in outside jobs and can learn work skills in internships with businesses that have a relationship with the school. Best of all, the teachers and staff treat their students with respect and expect their students to succeed. This school is a refreshing alternative to public schools who seem eager to pull the rug out from under struggling students and families. I'd recommend PVHS to anyone who is fed up with the public schools.
