    In this review, I will talk about (fake) service dogs, the staff, and construction of the new school. I am currently a senior at this school (class of 2018) and I see there's not a lot of reviews, so I wanted to voice my opinion. During my freshman - junior year, the staff has been outstanding in performance. The only complaint that I have is with one of the ladies at the front desks. I had a physical injury during lunch, and she refused to assist me, stating that my injury was "my fault" and that I should just suck it up. I'm not sure if it was just a long day for her, but her attitude was surprising to me, since I've rarely had any problems with the staff. Kibby is very well-suited to be the school's principal. He has such enthusiasm and goes out of his way to watch or take part in activities outside of school hours, like choir and theatre performances. I have heard rumors about him, but none of them have been proven to be true. After all, this is a high school. Rumors will be spread. I've never had much problems here (besides trashy students (hah) and dramatic ones). There was a transphobic teacher I have dealt with who would target no one else but me, but the vice-principal (Mr. Kolb, I believe) handled it in a very quick manner. I was quite impressed about how patient he was while handling the situation. I had to change my class 2 times and not a single complaint was ever heard from him in the process. About the construction of the new school, it's quite tiring for students to walk from lower campus to upper campus. When it rains, huge puddles are everywhere and the students eat outside. That's the biggest reason why I am rating 3 stars. !! For those with service dogs !! Please be careful! I have a service dog myself, but this year is the only year I am taking him to school with me. During one or two of my prior years (I can't remember), there was a fake service dog team. The student and her "service" dog would distract students and disrupt classes. Her dog would cause asthma attacks, and she allowed other students to carry her dog. She'd even dress her dog up in pigtails and carry it around in her purse. Ridiculous. I don't know if the staff are informed about ADA laws, but it seems the school just let the student and her dog right through. This made me very anxious about bringing my ACTUAL service dog to school with me, thinking that the other dog might be aggressive or too distracting. Please be safe and knowledgeable about your surroundings if you're thinking about bringing a service animal with you! The construction of the new school is going pretty slowly. Slower than I expected. By the time the construction is over, my younger brothers will be at PV. I'm happy they get to experience what the new PV will be like. :) I think I've rambled enough about PV. If you are a parent and is considering bringing your child to this school, I think waiting until the new school is built is a good idea. I think it will be finished by the winter of next year (2018). The staff makes up for the lack of school though, so I highly recommend signing up. (haha)

    I would NOT recommend this school, I repeat, I DO NOT recommend this terrible school. My child refuses to continue going to this school because of the problems at this school. This is the most unorganized school, my child has ever attended. They have no money to build an actual building that they tore down, therefore there are only portables/bungalows used as classes, offices, bathrooms, changing rooms, ect. They also have NO cafeteria so your child may have to eat lunch outside (unless a teacher allows you to use their classroom, which isn't always guaranteed). They also don't provide lockers for students unless you have PE. The books provided at the school is very outdated and old, which isn't helpful for the students. The students have to walk far distances to get from upper campus to lower campus which is unnecessary and a waste of time; the students don't have time to use restrooms ect,, which may ruin a student's attendance. Because there isn't an actual school, the students have to walk outside, even when it rains and that's possible that your child may get sick. Also the puddles get really huge and it's hard to get around campus. (Believe it or not, one time they had to use a canoe boat to paddle through the huge puddles, or shall I say lake... which is terrible.) Just build an actual school already. They been through construction on and off for 4 years and it's terrible. If they couldn't afford to build a school after destroying, why do it? The school's bathrooms are DISGUSTING and there's always a long line for an extremely small 3 stall bathroom. They smell horrible and it's always trashed OR even flooded. The environment is terrible. The students aren't motivated and always disrupt the class/teachers which is frustrating for the students who actually want to learn and pass their classes. All in all, just don't let your child suffer here, please.
