Ms. Kovach is the most horrible teacher known to man. She's terribly rude to the children and I cannot believe that the school has even kept her in there ... Apparently that's what the board of education stands for. I highly recommend requesting any teacher BUT her for your second grade child as this woman is not an acceptable role model and will only put your child down.

We loved this school last year when my daughter was in kindergarten. This year she is in first grade and we moved 2 months after school started and they would not return any of her supplies. They kept her crayon box that was full of supplies, a gallon ziploc bag full of her extra supplies and her money she was told to bring in to practice learning about money. I am beyond fed up with this school and their attitude with us.

They care about the special needs students, as much as the typical kids.

I have been an active parent at Pleasant Valley Elementary for 9 years now. My youngest child has special needs. She is proud of her school and is accepted there. This is a school that has children of very diverse backgrounds and abilities. The staff manages these difference admirably. My children have always enjoyed going to school. When they're happy I'm happy. Thank you to our school.

My daughter whom was diagnosed with PDD and mild autism has attended Pleasant Valley Elementary from the age of 5. She's now 9 and we're told that the true personality that she has is being seen. I can not imagine having put my daughter in any other school! The staff, teachers, therapists, counselors, teacher aides all are exceptional and really dedicate their whole being to these special needs kids. My daughter went from being non verbal and non social, to a social butterfly who carries on and initializes conversation!! That's huge! I couldn't thank this school more. Not to mention the dedication to every typical student and those students' ability to never judge the less fortunate children. It's a spectacular school and the students actually enjoy attending!

I love you PV! This school is rather large...maybe that is why it's heart is so big! A very big family is what this school feels like. It doesn't feel like you as a parent are lost though when you come through those doors. This school is warm and welcoming, it is filled wit a friendly staff...but they're tough too...no crap...love that. I am honored that my children are spending a good part of their day with this wonderful group of educators. Thank you PV!

Pleasant Valley Elementary is a very diversified school having a high population of special needs and ESL children along with general population students. All children interact regardless of disability and are taught respect for one another. The staff are wonderful and always willing to help. The best advice I can give anyone reviewing this school is to become involved, it is greatly encouraged and you will never regret any experiences. The PTA, staff and teachers are wonderful to work with and the more you know about your child's environment, the better their and your experiences will be. We have an Excellent rating and have recently been nominated for the Hall of Fame Award for 2008. We also have an outdoor sensory land lab all children are able to enjoy. I highly encourage attendance at Pleasant Valley Elementary.

I am not very impressed by this school at all. Last year my son was in brunswick schools, which were wonderful but this year things have changed. I do not like the approach some teachers take and the schedule they follow, they are also a little behind other schools. Think twice before putting your little ones here. We will be relocating due to this school.

This school is excellent! My child has special needs and this is the only school for multi-handicapped children in Parma. The student to teacher ratio is low and the teachers are attentive to needs and always willing to help in any situation given. The parent involvement in this school is amazing!The test scores have gone up in recent years, and the principal just recieved the principal of the year award in washington, DC. If you have a choice of where your child attends, this is the school you should choose for the best interest of your children.
