I have thoroughly enjoyed substitute teaching at this awesome school. The student body gets along well with one another and are respectful of their teachers. I accomplished a lot of academics when I subbed there. I especially love the block scheduling and teaching upper level Spanish classes. ...  Read more

Our daughter just completed her freshman year. I found the teachers she had to be above average and very helpful.

My son is getting exactly what he needs at PV. The band and robotics programs are outstanding. Academics in regular classrooms are not strong enough, so he will be taking AP and honors classes next year, which I hear are excellent. Block scheduling makes both academic and extra curricular classes ...  Read more

Pv has a terrible admin. great teachers. but a horrible administration, which is the backbone of a school. With a bad backbone you will always fail.

I love PV and I can't imagine going anywhere else. I have so many opportunities for AP classes and college credits that I couldn't get elsewhere.
