Our daughter attended this school and she loved it - so did we! While I don't have a comparison with other elementary schools in town, we are glad she was at PV. The teachers, the environment, teaching style, etc., were awesome and a great way to prep her for middle school! Can't say enough.

Very warm and caring school. Teachers are wonderful, my children have learned so much since they began attending Pleasant Valley, they repeat to us what they have learned when they get home - very happy, should be rated higher - don't let the "7" scare you off.

I love Pleasant Valley School. My two children love it, and my sisters and I all went to PV as children. It's a warm, friendly, inviting school and the teachers are the very best!

Communication is poor. Educators do not communicate properly with parents to ensure appropriate developmental progress is made.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Connecticut used the Connecticut Mastery Test (CMT) to test students' skills in reading, writing and math in grades 3 through 8, and in science in grades 5 and 8. The CMT is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Connecticut.
