Excellent. Strong involvement by both the teachers and parents. Teachers really go the extra mile to ensure that students are actively engaged and excited about learning. They even bring in outside experts from our exceptional regional universities, museums and scientific research institutions to expose our children to new ideas and concepts that expand their understanding of the world around them. They also focus on teaching emotional intelligence - a key skill in our increasingly collaborative work environments. We still have a few years to go here but so far- I'm impressed!

PV is a wonderful school with a caring, experienced staff. For the most part, we feel lucky to be there. However, in recent years, it's become clear that NUSD does not provide enough resources for the school to deal with the many IEPs and individual needs of all students. No one seems to know why such a wealthy community has to rely so strongly on parents to fundraise and volunteer in the classroom to attempt to do what our taxes are meant to do.

The teachers are very good as well as the front office staff. However, it appears the school and district policies restrict school administration from being effective at times in handling problem children that do harm to students who are focused on learning. (See bullying review above).

We could not be happier with this school. It is gem and we feel lucky to have found it. My daughter's The 1st grade teacher is wonderful and I am so impressed with the PTA and overall parent/community involvement.
