    "I like Pioneer Valley High School because it allows many student to express themselves. At this school many students were allowed the ability to start a club and participate in any clubs or sports. It's safe and provides help to any students in need."

    "I started at Pioneer Valley High School as a sophomore because I had moved from Arizona after my freshman year. I was really lost at the beginning and didn't have much guidance. The classes were very difficult for me at the beginning but I managed to adjust. Overall, the school has plenty of clubs and sports for students to choose from and most of the teachers are good at their job. Students tend to be very cliquey and only hangout with their "squad" but once in a while you get that group of people who are very welcoming. If I could change anything about PVHS, I would like to see the old block schedule back instead of the 7 class schedule we have now. I had my fair share of good and bad memories at PVHS, but I wouldn't trade them if I could."

    "My experience at Pioneer Valley High school was spectacular! The overall environment is ideal for all high school students. The teachers are amazing and are willing to help each individual student. One thing that stands out the most at this school is diversity. Everyone is accepting of one another."

    "I wish there had been more classes available to students who don't have a flexible schedule. For example, a lot of senior AP classes are only in the first three periods, but I couldn't change my schedule to get any of the classes I wanted. I literally had different counselors every year, which means they couldn't develop a signficant relationship with me and help me properly. Some teachers have a bad method for teaching students, but most are really helpful. However, I enjoyed aspects like student life and all the activities/clubs available to us. Four years at PV has been a positive experience for the most part."

    "My four years at pioneer have been in my opinion how you'd expect any high school experience to be. It made me grow as a person and mature, learning and progressing in my classes and sports. There wouldn't be any changes id make to this school other than the occasional drama but that's to be expected at any highschool."
