    "The most recent posting from May 9 holds no validity and is simply bizarre. The office staff is superbly organized and volunteers are welcome where needed. My children have attended for two years and receive excellent support and challenging academics. It is not perfect, no school is, but it is improving every year and under excellent principal direction."

    "If you have lots of money and don't care how you or your child(ren) are treated, you will love this school. The front office staff are incredibly rude and snotty. I guess the education is ok, but both my girls hated this school! The parental volunteer jobs are only given to a few favored parents, usually the ones who spend the most money. Overall very unhappy with this school. Terrible atmosphere."

    "Great school! The cooperation between teachers, administration, PTA and parent volunteers makes what makes this school shine. Principal Terry Brown knows the first names of every one of the 410 students and she leads a team of hardworking teachers and staff who are student focused and teach not only the academics, but citizenship as well. Volunteers provide strong support in the classrooms, bringing small group (5 students) instruction which is differentiated to challenge students on all levels. Volunteers run school events and support the teaching staff in a variety of ways. The school has a dedicated PTA organization that fundraises in effective and fun ways to provide financial support for the classrooms and for enrichment programs."

    "Wonderful school! My child is now in 7th grade Middle school GATE. PV gave him a superior education. He has been a 4.0 since starting Sinaloa Middle. I owe this to the teachers who saw his potential and pushed him to work harder. He also has an amazing set of friends from Pleasant Valley. A great community school."

    "We were sadly disappointed in this school. Under the last principle, our student as well as several friends and families students were not a priority. Instead it was the relationship between the teachers and former principle. Fortunately she is no longer there. It is frightening that she is not in a high position in the school district. Makes me ponder the districts priorities. Hopefully Ms. Gavin will give Pleasant Valley what it deserves, great leadership and re-frame the way a handful of teachers look at things."
