It is located in the beautiful countryside of Chautauqua country. It has newly updated facilities including the playgrounds, and it continues to have small student / teacher ratios. The teachers are professional and caring., and they provide an exciting and inviting atmosphere that enriches learning. They are also flexible in order to meet the needs of different students and learning styles. Furthermore, they offer a variety of enrichment activities both during the school day as well as through extra curricular after school programs. Most importantly, my children look forward to going to school each day. :)

This is such a wonderful school and district. Parents try to be helpful. Whenever there is a need, tragedy or difficult situation the community rallies around the school, staff and students in such remarkable, caring and thoughtful ways.

I am a Pine Valley graduate, tax payer and parent and have found the overall education of this school positive. The teachers have all been willing to work with me and my children. They have given beyond their required time and efforts. They take my child's education seriously and have continued to benefit his growth and development. The team atmosphere is particularly strong and their reward program for fifth and sixth grade students is a motivator for my child. Great Job!

This was my children's first year at Pine Valley. They (and I) love the school, teachers, and staff. My children's father is a graduate of Pine Valley and we are very pleased to have our kids attend such a wonderful and pleasent school. Children spend so much time at school and it is important that it is somewhere that they are comfortable and feel positive about them selves. My children's teachers have given my kids such help in there self esteem it is wonderful!

About the tests


Beginning in the 2012-2013 school year, the New York State Department of Instruction implemented new assessments designed to be aligned with the Common Core State Standards. The new standards for proficiency in these subjects are higher than in previous years and the percent of students earning a proficient score is expected to be lower as a result of this change. See this letter from New York's Commissioner of Education for more information on these changes.

In 2013-2014 New York used the New York State Assessments to test students in grades 3 through 8 in English language arts and math, and in grades 4 and 8 in Science. At present 2013-14 results are available only for English language arts and math. The tests are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of New York. The goal is for 90% of students to meet or exceed grade-level standards on the tests.
