Welcome to the Pleasant Valley School District
The Pleasant Valley School District (PVSD), located in the Pocono Mountain area, serves the residents of Chestnuthill, Polk, Eldred and Ross Townships. With roots as a one room schoolhouse, the Pleasant Valley School District began, and continues with the goal of providing a comprehensive educational program rich in a tradition of achievement, innovation and community for all students. The District's elementary, intermediate, middle and high schools provide a challenging, multi-disciplinary academic program and dynamic, co-curricular experience to more than 4,200 students.
PVSD's comprehensive instructional program encompasses an array of services for special needs and gifted children as well as community-based learning programs, after school tutoring, early-intervention literacy support and a full offering of high school honors and AP courses including Project Lead the Way beginning in the Fall of 2019.
An extensive range of course offerings in core areas, music and the arts, technology and special subjects form the foundation of the District's secondary curriculum. STREAM themed activities permeate school programs at the elementary, intermediate and middle levels providing students enhanced opportunities to explore subjects through hands-on, interdisciplinary activities. The District also hosts its own K-12 Cyber Academy offering parallel academic programming to its brick and mortar buildings.
The More than 400 supervised academic, athletic, community outreach and performance-oriented co-curricular programs are available in the District, from elementary STREAM nights to high school varsity sports.
