This school bullying is so high, you'd have better luck sending your child to district 150.

pleasant valley middle school - This school has great caring staff who notify the parents at the first sign of trouble. Many extra-curricular activities and a great rewards program encouraging students to achieve. The only downside is I feel they issue too many detentions to a student defending themselves, when another student has started a problem.

their bullying rate is way to high my son has been going there for 2 years now and he has been suspended multiple time for fighting because he keeps getting bullied an he can only take so much..i have spoken with the staff many times and nothing ever gets done! the first time my son got suspended it was for sticking up for a smaller kid after walking in the bathroom and seeing him being beat on by a bigger kid.

The school has a great learning facility, but Mr Johnson and his staff go over broad when dealing with small issues. like color bracelets. If they would of handle bullies with that force they might get somewhere.

Pleasant Valley Middle School is a great school! My oldest son goes there and I have been amazed by the progress he's made and the programs available for him. Besides the athletic programs, they have many other academic programs, such as Facts, which is a program that teaches the children all about cooking, sanitation, and allows them the chance to sample many different foods and drinks, including different types of milk, including soy. The school still teaches the children about DARE and health education as well. My sons' teacher, Mrs. Henderson, is great! She not only teaches the children what they need to learn in math, history, science, spelling, and writing, but she uses different techniques and interactive play to make learning fun. I am very pleased with this school and I feel completely safe with the security and environment that Pleasant Valley Middle School offers. Thank you.

The elementary school is great but not the middle school. The teachers at the middle school would rather punish the children than to work with them to make them better students. They give the students demerits every time they sneeze the wrong way which leads to detention after detention. When is it time to try to teach them the correct way instead of just punishing them time after time? We are now moving to a better school where the teachers actually care about their students!!
