    What our parents say icon We came from a private school and always intended to send our child to a private school. My husband and I are so happy that we are at PVSchools. The education is much more intense than I expected, the teachers are extremely qualified and know how to bring out the best in my son. I am extremely thankful that our journey has lead us to Paradise Valley
