    Great school! Attentive and caring principal and teachers! We just love this school. My two sons (one in K and one in 3rd grade) are attending this school and we love the individual personalized interest from the teachers as well as the admin staff. They care a lot about the academics which we love also the school wide function. We just moved the area from a 10 rating school district and based on our experience here so far PVES deserves even more than 10!

    My daughter is in first grade and loves it here. We moved here mid summer and chose this school based on its 9 rating. Mrs. Frazier the principal was instrumental in placing our daughter with the right fit based on our childs needs. My daughter and I think Mrs. S is the best teacher ever. I have gone to almost every school wide function and this school has all the community and top notch involvment and support of the Admin Teachers PTA and families that we were used to in the FL private school. The quality of curricullum has been equally impressive. They work so hard to give every helpful tool they can to students and parents. The cultural diversity is a breathe of fresh air with true harmony. I have been so pleased. Thank you PVES.
