My children have been attending Pleasant View Elementary since 2004. We have been extremely impressed with the level of teachers and support we get as parents. The principal, Mr. Keith Miller, as always been responsive when I had concerns. The teacher to student ratio in low and always more 1-on-1 time.

Pleasant View Elementary school came highly recommended by several people in our church. We have never been disappointed. I am confident my children are receving a quality education and are being challeged to reach their potential. Parents are strongly encouraged to be involved in the classroom and are always welcome in the school building. I can't understand how any parent could be dissatisfied with the quality of education at this school.

When compared to other Cheatham County schools, this school had a good reputation by a few families at our church when we first move to the area. I was shocked at the lack of acceptance of children of other various minority heritages. My family was discouraged of participating in any extracurricular activities or social functions within the classroom. We were also disappointed by the lack of education my child received. She reached her targeted reading level before the holidays and was never challenged beyond it. They simply starting the reading curriculum over again when the Spring semester began! She learned to speak redneck English and became fearful of her teacher due to the constant yelling. The only form of discipline that was ever used by the staff and after school staff was yelling; assuming that the after school staff paid attention to children enough to notice them. Usually they were too busy talking to each other to notice a parent in the room or if a child had been picked up. It required the next academic year in a private school for my child to catch back up with her peers academically and socially. It was a traumatic experience for both my child and myself that I cannot forgive myself for years later. I've lost what little faith I had in Middle Tennessee's public school system after this experience and will continue to send all of my children to a quality private school.
