This school is rude and never listens to parents. They say it is a no bullying school but I've seen my three kids get bullied for years. They hang up on me all the time. They ignore my son's problems and have started to bully him as well. I would never ever recommend this school to anyone.

I could never recommend this school for anything, I have had two children in this school for 5 years and can see that they will stuggle when they get into Middle School to catch up with other students. Would add if your child has an IEP this school is next to worthless in helping them succeed!

No homework, even though classes have been cut in order to focus on "passing the test" and not doing a good job at that. Run down. If your child is well behind, this "may" be the school for you. Otherwise, not recommended.

This school has been absolutely wonderful for my son. He is excelling emotionally socially and academicly. Prior to attending PV he was struggling and hated school (at a highly rnaked school, I might add). Now he is happy, what more could a parent ask for. I highly recommend PV.

Our new principal is already making great strides. Very accessible and open to suggestions. We have an amazing group of parent volunteers and an ever increasing amount of extra-curricular activities.

My kids have been at PV for 3 and 4 years and we've always been pleased. Small classes are great for individualized education.

My kids have never been happier in school since they started attending PleasantView Elementary! A 'small town' school with a family oriented attitude. The teachers are caring, hardworking, professionals that believe a child deserves and education no matter what obstacles must be overcome. Highest kudos to Pleasantview!

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Colorado used the Transitional Colorado Assessment Program (TCAP) to test students' skills in reading, writing and mathematics in grades 3 through 10, and in science in grades 5, 8 and 10. The TCAP is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Colorado. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test. The TCAP replaced the CSAP as Colorado's state assessment program effective for the 2011-2012 school year.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
