Dear Parents and Community Stakeholders,

Over the last 3 years PVS has been working diligently to improve in many areas. Our recent growth and academic gains as a school are attributed to the tremendous support of our parents and community. We thank you for your support, because without you none of this would be possible!

Here are just a few of our recent accomplishments as well as what is in progress for the fall of 2019:

  • Deployment of 30 additional student Chromebooks in the fall of 2018 to further enhance technology use and availability in the classroom
  • In the process of securing bond financing to further remodel our school campus
  • Expansion of our transportation services through the addition of a third route and a third bus to accommodate our families in areas we currently do not reach
  • Our students and faculty are diligently working toward exceeding state standards and we are designated as a highly performing school with the State

In addition to what is to come, I have to say that the PVS faculty is the most committed and dedicated group of educators I have ever worked with. Our team always defers to, “What is best for kids?”. No matter the challenge, our faculty and staff has the focus and determination to overcome all odds.

Most of all, I need to congratulate the PVS students. The students have taken on the challenge of demonstrating that regardless of ethnicity or socioeconomic background ALL students can achieve academic success! The PVS mantra of rigor, relevance and excellence is embedded in our daily operations, which is evident through our focus on preparing our youth for life after graduation and beyond.

What’s Next?

PVS does not stop there! More changes and improvements are on the horizon. Our faculty continue to work diligently to increase the rigor of our instructional program to assist ALL students in realizing their learning goals and aspirations. Current initiatives are as follows:

  • Our school within a school program, the Innovative Academy of Excellence at PVS, is in the process of development and will focus on Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics
  • We are also introducing a NEW Early Kindergarten Program for 4 year old scholars turning 5 by 12/31, and
  • STILL maintaining small class sizes to maximize intervention and personalized attention for all learners

PVS appreciates your continued support. If at any time you have questions or comments please email me at mfuller@pvschool.com or call 928-772-8744. Our Dean of Students, Mrs. Phares, can also be reached at hphares@pvschool.com
