Pierre Van Cortlandt School Ratings & Reviews

December 02, 2017 Submitted by a parent
The academics are sub-standard at best. There is no expectation of excellence, no tracking and they teach to the middle if you are lucky. The poor teachers far, far outweigh the good ones and for all the taxes that are paid and the small class sizes there is VERY little return on our investment.

I really don't understand where these school ratings come from - the standard tests or the real estate sales people? PVC is sub standard when it comes to academics. The schools are in beautiful condition and all present well but they are very limited. All of my daughters contemporaries left in Middle School for private schools or home schooling. Socially, it is so small and so cliquish. There is not feeling of community. Go to the Black Cow and talk to locals before you buy here.

PVC is a terrific school if you have a child who is above average as a student or an average learner. It may be great for struggling learners, too, but I don't have any direct experience with this. This year, the school featured wonderful learning oppostunities in math, science and literacy, and compared quite favorable to the "gifted programs" in Manhattan. The students seem happy and the small size of the district really gives everyone a tailored learning experience. We also enjoyed the FRE afterschool program that included chess, lego robotics, math olympiad, theatre and art. The school day music program allows the children to take two instruments or chorus for free.

As a parent with two children at PVC I give the school an average rating for a number of reasons, mainly because I think they have the potential to do much better than they are doing. The school is in a small district, only 3 schools total, and has been very fiscally responsible which is great. The facilities are pretty good and the administration runs a tight ship. The kids are fairly diverse and have a lot to offer. The only program that I would consider exceptional is their music program otherwise they provide a solid average education in a supportive, caring environment. I think their biggest problem stems from a lack of a unifying vision for the district as a whole. Too many competing forces, pushy parents, state mandates, teacher unions are all pulling at the administration and the result is mediocrity. Consistency is spotty throughout the district in curriculum and teaching. There are no mechanisms built into the system to enrich higher achieving kids and stretch them, you have to rely on individual teachers most of whom I've found are satisfied when their students achieve proficiency. In general it's a solid learning environment but certainly not an exceptional one.

I think that PVC is pretty good compared to other schools i have seen. PVC has a BIG issue with helicopter parents who are under the impression that their kid is a prodigy. Not only do many parents think that, they take action about it too. If a parent on the school board has a kid doing lots of athletics, guess what? Athletics spending goes up while academics spending goes down, as it has a lot recently. This really irritates me about PVC. Why are after school sports valued higher than extra curricular activities like Math Olympiad, Destination Imagination, yearbook club, etc.? Everyday we always hear about how various extra curricular activities are scraping for money with bake sales and fundraisers while the football team just got thousands of dollars of equipment. Can we fund things that actually mean something on a college application? The problem is the parents, not the teachers.
