The Four Cornerstones of a Palm Valley School Education
The Four Cornerstones of a PVS education are college-preparation, character, communication skills and community and they drive every facet of our days in school. It's why, for over 50 years, we have seen our graduates leave us and go out into the world well prepared for learning and for life!
Consider that 100% of our graduates qualify for four-year colleges. Keep in mind that our average SAT score is 250 points higher than the national average. Reflect on the merits of a small school where participation in the whole life of the school, athletics, arts and academics is the norm, not the exception. Imagine the power of a community of families that value and celebrate higher standards of personal commitment. See for yourself the confidence that comes with well developed communication skills.
Palm Valley School is an independent, college-preparatory, coeducational, non-denominational preschool-12 school, which offers a challenging educational program. The Palm Valley School:
Develops intellectual abilities through a passion for learning and critical thinking;
Inspires individual courage, respect, and tolerance;
Fosters integrity, compassion and responsibility;
Nurtures imagination and creative expression and a sense of humor;
Encourages a balanced perspective on life through healthy decision-making and physical fitness.
The Palm Valley School community (families, staff and trustees) is committed to an educational environment that reflects these values. Our curriculum empowers our students to be effective citizens as they meet the challenges in an increasingly complex world.
