I grew up in this school system, graduated and I even participated in the athletics program. After graduating Paint Valley, I went off to college out of state and never looked back. I am not proud to be an alumnus of this school, but very embarrassed. I was, however fortunate enough to forged my own path to success. I have even surpassed those who graduated at the top tier of the class. The biggest point of failure this school has besides substandard educators is the extra-curricular activity coaches. 85-90% of the coaches are alumni. They hand-pick and mold select players, not based on athletic talent, but designed from their social circles. Student athlete s whose parents are either childhood friends or parents with community influence are favorites. This school places more emphasis on attempting to groom sports and less on actual education. If you are not from the area and looking for a High School that will provide your child(ren) a quality education, then skip Paint Valley. You are far better off providing your child(ren) better opportunities elsewhere.

My child is doing well at PV and I have seen alot of the teaching staff really step up and be there for the kids. On the other hand, the Superintendant cannot make any decisions without first approving them with an uncertified library aid who runs everthing and wants help from only her closest friends. As much as others want to help and volunteer, you can only do so at their descretion. Same with the HS athletics...your child can show up and work hard at every practice to be part of a TEAM but we all see who will be playing on the field at game time...Maybe if her boys sat out a couple of plays and tried to be part of a team instead of 'the team' we could have pulled off a win. Something to think about! -From not a 'disgruntled parent', but an honest one!

Paint Valley is a very good school. My children have many classes to choose from and the teachers really care about the students. I am proud to be a Paint Valley Bearcat!

This site should delete these reviews. I have spent a year and a half in the school system and can say that Paint Valley is putting out highly successful students that go on to succeed in college and in life. These reviews are unfair and probably come from dlisgruntled parents.

I think that this school is very biased with it's students. I think that it isn't very challenging for children that need a little more stimulation. It needs to have more time for children to be children and quit trying to pigeonhole every child into what they deem to be perfect.

This school is the worst I have ever seen. Poor quality in every way. It is a disgrace to my town and, it should be torn down.
