,At the beginning of the year, my ADHD son was in a class, that did not meet his needs. The principal at this school is AMAZING!!!! She not only put him in a class where he has improved GREATLY!! But has personally helped my son. This school is Very fortunate to have such a fine person

2010-2011 school year. My daughter likes her teacher so I have not pulled her out of the class just because of my views of her. I have tried to volunteer for every field trip and have yet to be allowed on one, have tried to volunteer with filing or simply cutting paper, whatever needs to get done and she has been very unwelcoming. I believe that it is not just this one teacher as well as on several occasions I have been met with pretty much aggressive behavior. if parents are not allowed on campus on a certain day of the week you could just as easily tell me that before using your body to block my from entering or block me from my child! I only want to be involved with my childs education and expect to be welcomed to do so not blocked and discouraged

This school was a Pleasant surprise!! I was very hesitant about sending my only child to this school when I first moved here. My neighbor, who is an educator, convinced us to give it a chance and I'm glad I did. I don't think my child would have had anywhere near the opportunities she has had anywhere else. It was the staff at this school that discovered she needed to be at a higher level and took the initiative to test her and challenge her. She has a smile every day and loves hanging out at the school over any other place! The new principal, teacher and staff work hand in hand together for these kids and face great challenges. Give it a chance.

Poor Pleasant Hill, the teachers keep leaving and every year we expect new faces because of the poor management by administrators who are also kind of like in a rotating door--they come and go and parents input is never taken into account. We need a hispanic principal to communicate with the large number of non-English speakers.

We just recently moved to Pleaseant Hill and I do have to say we are VERY pleased with Pleasant Hill. The teachers are great and are very willing to help with anything. My son had some problems with his reading, and this school has went above and beyond to help us. There are so many parents and teachers involved with each other at this school. And if you drive by when it's drop off time and release time, you will be able to tell. We LOVE it!

I was very disappointed when I started my job here. The major cause of student discipline problems are the parents who don't teach their children any manners when in public. Parents are at school all the time but few actually volunteer to work with teachers. They loiter and gossip in cliques which in my opinion. reflects poorly on the administrators who don't care or don't want to waste their time in telling them to go home.

I was very pleased with Pleasant Hill this year. The teachers and staff were wonderful. I was disappointed with the level of parent involvement at times, but the quality staff made up for it. My daughter loved art, music and p.e, but it would have been nice to have computers as an added extracurricular activity. Also, my daughter was very advanced and clearly ahead of her class in all areas, but the school refused to test her in order to have her move to the next grade. She is in another district now and they allow the students to take a test and move up to the next grade if they score high enough. This would have been helpful because my daughter spent a lot of time bored in the classroom this year. Her teacher was great though and modified activities for her whenever possible.

My children have attended Pleasant Hill for over 5 years and I have to say that Pleasant Hill has made a point to establish a sense of community and an enthusiastic role in the live's of our children. My children really feel safe and at home in their classrooms. The teachers and the staff are very qualified and experienced and provide a well rounded curriculum.
