    I am a parent of a PVMS student and we love our school! They are engaged involved and responsive academically as well as socially.

    Im a student here in the sixth grade and ive never witnessed or heard of anyone getting bullied. The teachers are great and it's not all about learn learn learn you have a ton of fun too.

    Test scores should not affect your opinions or willingness to send your child to this school. I have a child in 7th grade and an 8th grader both of my children love it here. Your child is able to excel socially and as long as the motivation is there your child will be able to grow. We moved schools from Stuart also in the area last year due to lack of grade level education the difference is noticeable. Many of the instructors have advanced degrees and are able to execute lessons properly. Bullying does happen occasionally but it is not common as most of these parents say. As long is your child has ability to learn and have fun they will strive in this environment. This is the best available middle school option in the area including the charter in the Brighton area.

    If you want your child to be focused on school and feel safe at the same time this is not the school for you. If you have a little bully they will fit right in!

    I have a 6th and 8th grader that attend this school and I moved my 8th grader last year from a charter school in Jeffco School District and she has absolutely loved this school even better than that one! My 6th grader comes home everyday saying he had an amazing day with no bullying whatsoever. I know the education scores don't look the best but both of my children are in advanced math classes and doing quite well being thoroughly challenged! In fact my 8th grader is in Geometry which is technically a 10th grade level class and my 6th grader is in Pre Algebra which is a 8th grade level! Don't overlook this school due to it's scores and past reputation it is a newer school and is continuing to get better and better in that area. The teachers are very well educated and many have Master Degrees. Also for my kids to have such an amazing experience everyday with their peers and teachers is worth more than anything to me!

    I feel that half of the teachers are very good but then the other half just do not care about students. They say they are there to help with parents or administrators but really do not give the time to students. We have seen this in 6th and 7th grades so far. It is unfortunate that adminstration does not look into this more and really release teachers like this as it really does just make students and parents frustrated.

    The school building is very nice unfortunately the classes are already large the teachers are unable to really observe the students which allows bullying and harassment. The principal was rarely available and the assistant principal is very naive and does not deal well or fairly with incidents. Our child was pulled out after one semester.
