Terrible representation of a school, needs to shape up their academic classes and also add a wider selection of extracurricular classes. District need help.

The best school ever! My kids are excelling in all of their classes so far due to how the teachers care so much.

I am a new parent to public schools and I am very satisfied with PVIS. The teachers and staff are very qualified and helpful. I also came from a private school and I am surprised at the high level of education my children are getting at PVIS.

Love this school! My child didn't have any friends there coming out of elementary school. He has so many new and nice friends. We call it the happy school. The teachers are over and above what to expect.

The school is excellent, we moved from LAUSD, where they don't teach but convey the material like the kids are in college and expect them to learn with little teaching. They don't give second chances. At PVIS, the teachers are genuine and try to teach the kids, it is a supportive and rewarding environment ...  Read more

My child attended PVIS for 3 years. She attended regular classes but struggles. The environment was very poor for her. Counceling was weak. Bullying and harrassment were severe and not addressed pro-actively. Teachers frequently complained of too many students so they cannot provide individual help ...  Read more

Palos Verdes Intermediate School

* In 2011-2012 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.
