The mission of the Pleasant Valley Intermediate School is to inspire all students toward physical, intellectual, emotional, and social growth as lifelong learners.
Pleasant Valley Intermediate School (PVI) is a large intermediate school located in a rural setting between the towns of Gilbert and Kresgeville, Pennsylvania and was established in
2000. Approximately 900 students in grades 3-5 experience many exciting opportunities on a daily basis in an environment that helps our students grow from cubs to bears. The intermediate school is home to 68 professional staff members and 36 support staff personnel. The building is administered by one Principal and one Assistant Principal.
Located in Polk Township, Pleasant Valley Intermediate offers 14 third grade, 14 fourth grade and 12 fifth grade classes. The well-rounded curriculum includes Reading, Math, Science, Social Studies, Physical Education, Health, Art, Technology, Integrated Library, General Music/Chorus and Instrumental Music. Chorus is offered to all grades. Our extra-curricular activities include seasonal musicals, choral/band concerts, a Math Escape Room, Spellbinding Journey, Authors & Artists Night, Family Engagement Nights and various content area based, social service and recreational clubs.
Pleasant Valley Intermediate provides diverse educational settings to meet the educational, social and developmental needs of our student population. Our students participate in a team learning community model consisting of 2 or 3 homeroom teachers. This dynamic serves to meet the developmental, academic and social needs of Pleasant Valley Intermediate students as they transition from an elementary setting through an intermediate setting, to a middle setting.
STUDENT SERVICES AT PVI
The goal of the Pleasant Valley Intermediate School is to create and maintain a support system that enables all children to meet with success. Determining what works for each child through the collaborative efforts of the school, home and community accomplishes this process. We believe that all children belong and learn best with their age appropriate peers. We also believe that it is our responsibility to educate all our children in an optimal educational environment that addresses their academic, social and emotional needs. Children identified as having special needs will receive additional support through special education teachers working with the classroom teacher. In this way, all children can benefit while learning to appreciate diversity.
Pleasant Valley Intermediate also offers school counseling services to all of its students. Our basic concern in the guidance department is to improve each individual’s self-image. Our primary function, in cooperation with the other professional staff, is to promote the physical, intellectual, and moral/ethical maturity in each student.
