The API score is around 550. That's almost the same as the disabled kid's API score. Are all the kids disabled?

I'm was a senior last year, and this school might be rookie compared to others, but trust me when i say the teachers were so involved with student work, being part of the second graduating class of PV was an honor, truly devoted students, teachers, staff and parents. P.S. soccer boys also won CCS a year before and are still the Christmas Cup defending champions.

It is a new school that teaches its students the importance of the enviroment through a number of programs,classes and through awareness of why they should conserve the envirnment. As I said before, it is a new public school and the budget cuts have affected the resources that students are offered to expand their knowledge and this money would greatly help brighten the future of the students.

Pv is just an awesome school. It may be small and overcrowded but the environment that the students and the teachers create is just amazing. Im a senior, and I get along with all my teachers, even ones I had my previous years. We may have our occasional fights now and then, but I dont know a school who hasnt had any. I definitley recommend this school to any new students. -Obie colin

the school is relatively small but hugely overcrowded. the classrooms are jam packed with students. sometimes the classrooms are so overcrowded that students have to sit on the floor or take another elective. the admin isn't that great either. they have a tendency of playing favorites with certain students, and let them slide. the teachers need to be more strict on the students ans the students need to stop acting like they are victims. no one is forcing them to be there. school is a privalege not a necessity. but i would like to thank certain teachers who do a good job in preparing students for college.
