April, 2012

On behalf of the faculty and staff of Pioneer Valley High School, I am pleased to welcome you to the PVHS website. We are excited to have an opportunity to share information about our campus with you.

Pioneer Valley serves over 2,500 students in grades nine through twelve and is in its eighth year of education. We are proud of the many activities that are underway including, but not limited to, Student Council, Link Crew, band competitions, student clubs, athletics, drama productions, and the many academic scholarships and accolades that have been awarded this year. As you review the many links, be sure to click on the Highlights to view details of upcoming events, and the Spotlight and Latest News to view photos and specifics of recent news items.

Our staff is continually working together to assist each student in reaching their full academic and emotional potential. One unique trait of which I am especially proud is our homeroom called Panther Forum. This exceptional opportunity allows students a non-academic course with the same teacher throughout their four years at PV. In this class, students receive school information, complete all standardized testing, and most importantly, have the opportunity to build a consistent connection with an adult on campus who can support them throughout high school.  Our Student Services page provides links to the many options on our campus that support students and parents.

This year has flown by, and I am looking forward to our sixth annual graduation in honor of the class of 2012. Please visit the Graduation & Senior Activities page for information about the exciting year-end events planned for graduates. Thank you for taking the time to visit the Pioneer Valley website. It is truly a privilege to serve the community in this capacity.

Yours in education,

Mrs. Herrera
