    Kinder round Up

    If your child is going to be five years old before September 1, 2023, now is the time to come in a register for the 2023-2024 school year. Registration packets are available in the front office. I mid-May, we will hold our annual Kinder Orientation event where you can come in and meet the teacher and learn about the school. 

    After-School Art Program

    We are excited to announce that this year, as a part of the Expanded Learning Opportunity Grant Program, we will be offering art lessons to all students throughout the school year. These lessons will be given by a local artist and will be available most Wednesday afternoons. 

    To improve the learning experience, we have converted one of our portable classrooms into an artist studio/classroom. 

    Please look for a flyer and a ParentSquare post for more information about these classes.

    Pleasant Valley School and District

    Pleasant Valley School, nestled in the beautiful vineyard covered hills of San Miguel has been creating successful learners and members of the community since 1884.  Students in kindergarten through sixth grade attend this wonderful school, and despite its small size, the school still provides the equivalent 21st Century education that is available in the much larger districts.

    The school community prides itself on its long-standing tradition of strong parent and community involvement. Yearly events, such as the Harvest Festival, Color Run, and Thanksgiving Feast add to the sense of community involvement in the school.

    The faculty and staff of PVS are highly qualified, caring professionals who promote a warm, safe, and family-oriented atmosphere.  They value pride in education and life-long learning. The small class sizes and high staff to student ratios mean that students can receive individual help for their educational and other needs. One-to-one technology and a dedicated science STEM lab are just two of the great offerings that this tiny but mighty school has to offer. 

    Pleasant Valley School is a little out of the way but not too hard to find. It's just a short 15-minute drive NE of Paso Robles. Stop by and check us out!

    From Highway 101 and CA 46E (approximately 8.9 miles):

    1. Take CA 46 E (toward Fresno/Bakersfield for 4.8 miles. 

    2. Turn left on Jardine Road, and follow for one mile. 

    3. After crossing the bridge, keep left as Jardine Road becomes Estrella Road after the bridge. 

    4. At the stop sign, continue straight onto Ranchita Canyon Road. The school is immediately on your right at 2025 Ranchita Canyon Road, San Miguel, CA 93451.
