    Exemplary school great staff great teachers when learning is fun and test scores are great sooooo recommended !!!!!.

  • (3 years ago)

    PH is a really great school because of the teamwork between the administration the teachers and the parents. A relationship with a teacher is SOOOO subjective so it's difficult to rate "teachers" as a whole but our experience has been nothing but positive here. The diversity is so great with the kids being exposed to people from all over the world. Parent involvement is high and really provides support for both classroom and extracurricular activities. When test scores are great when learning is fun when your kids love to go to school it really can't get better than that.

    i believe that PH is an exemplary school all the teachers and faculty members are enthusiastisc and make students want to suceed. The school has a lot more club options than most elementary schools and this is great because kids can get exposed to new things at a younger age..

    We moved to Palatine for the schools and specifically for Pleasant Hill. This is an outstanding school with enthusiastic teachers and principal. It's a wonderful community area that surrounds the school and many events to get the entire family involved with the school.
