My daughter attended this school, and it was okay. Now, my son is attending it (starting in 2013), and it has become horrible. The teachers are okay, but only a handful of hard and good teachers left. The administration is horrible. The guidance staff is also incompetent. Both the guidance and administration ...  Read more

I disagree with the last few comments. My son and daughter attended PVMS and had a wonderful experience. The teachers, principal and vice principals are all very involved with the kids. They are very caring and truly want what is best for the kids.

I agree with the last post that was submitted in Oct. 2011. If your child is struggling in his/her classes, this school is not the place to send your child. The teachers do not implement a plan for a child that is failing behind, instead, allows the child to continue to fail. This school is horrible.

This school is a good ...  Read more

My children attended Patuxent Valley and this school is horrible. Mainly the administration. They are not focused on helping the children at all. I am not one to say that I hate anything, but I can almost say that about this school. HORRIBLE

i left pvms last year but the time i was there i had a lot of fun. as a new student in the 6th grade i thought it would be hard for me to make friends and to fit in but it was not. While i was there the teachers and rest of the faculty were always there for wether it was academic problems or personal ...  Read more

I second the reviewer who said it is an OK school if your child is strong acdemically. If your child has any learning , emotional, or behavioral needs - try another school! In speaking to parents about the adjustment to 6th grade, I have heard the same story over and over again; unless your child is ...  Read more
