My 2 oldest children went to this school. My oldest daughter is dyslexic and they were less than helpful. The only year my daughter didn't cry and fight about going to school was in kindergarten. They were wonderful with my son, but he only went there in kindergarten. I found it apalling that no matter what grade your child is in, they will come home with at least 1 hour of homework. I had a newborn to take care of so trying to deal with a newborn, at least 2 hours of homework, cook dinner and give baths get kids to bed was nearly impossible. I was so happy to move away from PVE and Wentzville school district
The new principal is AWESOME! The school will also be reducing it's number of students by half next year as they have built a new school opening in the Fall of 2010. This will reduce the student/teacher ratio and have a positive impace on both schools. My child has had wonderful teachers and a great education here. The Horizons programs is a great addition as well for students who need to be even more challanged (the 'gifted' program).
I love this school and staff. The front office staff is very welcoming these days. We all have seen huge improvement over the first couple of years at PVE. We have to believe that having Dr. O leary for two consecutive years has to do with that! Thank you Dr. O Leary for even coming back to our school! You have done what most haven t. Consistency is very important in every job, even more so when it has to do with your children. Parents, students and staff have now really gotten to know each other. It really is nice to send your child to a school where you feel he/she is known and is part of a school family. PVE just a couple of years ago, was like going to a new school each year for students, parents and even the staff. I am so happy how PVE is changing. With Parent Support and District Support we will be a wonderful school with Spirit!
