I have a PDD-NOS Autistic child and a ADHD child currently attending this school. They are equipped with knowledgeable, kind and caring teachers and counselors. The principle cares about each child in the school system. The school goes above and beyond to make sure the children are in a safe and happy environment. I am very impressed with the school. Having two special needs children it is a challenge to make sure they are learning at the expected rate of a child their ages. I would recommend this school to anyone who asks. I have been very impressed with the improvement in both of my children since receiving the educational services required for them.

I have to agree with the June 1, 2013 post. My child constantly scored several grades above her grade level but only because I worked with her at home and she went to an excellent preschool. PVES would not even consider letting her skip a grade - they needed her scores to counteract the scores of the other kids in her class. She was also given the worst teachers each year. One year, she had 3 teachers. The only good teacher she ever had at PVES was straight out of college and had yet to be corrupted by the lazy attitude that seems to prevail over there. Because of that, she was bored at school. I finally moved her to a private school where she has excelled.

We moved to PV about 3 years ago and it seems very clear by the staff that unless you have lived in Pleasant View your whole life you will not getr the good teacher. My child had a great K year the teacher was amazing but after that she was never pushed and didnt learn anything. She went backwards. She had a teacher tell her that she didnt have to test because she would get an A anyway. My child loved school until she hit first grade and was no longer pushed. This school does not push kids to reach beyond what a passing grade is.... so sad.

It is one of the most hands on greatest schools you can ask for. The complete staff is hands on, understanding and friendly. The school is designed for the kids to enjoy learning eveyday. The design in the hallways are amazing. The field trips and monthly activites for the school are amazing. I would recommend this school to anyone. I have enjoyed every year my children have atteneded.

My son goes to school at PVES and I feel so blessed that he goes there. I loved the how they want so much parent involvment and how the parents do want to be involved the in the school. I went to ECES when I was young and I am so glad that I had my son go to school here instead of there. My daughter will start next year and she cannot wait. The school is a class all by it's self.

This is a great school with many wonderful teachers. They welcome parents to get involved during school hours, and they even have places set aside for the parents to use! I have not been in a school where the parents are more welcomed! I would like to see more extracurricular activities though.
