    Pequannock Valley Middle School is an exceptional learning institution full of caring creative teachers and wonderful staff. The administration goes above and beyond for all of the students and make it their personal mission to make sure each student is getting exactly what he or she needs...whether social academic emotional etc. My children have not only thrived in this environment but they regained a love for learning that was waning at the elementary level. Mr. Hayzler runs the school like a well-oiled machine...but does it so well that he is a favorite among students teachers and parents alike. I feel blessed that my children have been able to learn in such a nurturing spirited environment.

    Both of my children attended PV. Their fine teaching staff and administration gave my kids every opportunity to receive the excellent education which they have benefited from in their adult lives and when they chose to stray from that path the staff gently but firmly moved them back onto the right track.
