The Pascack Valley Regional High School District is proud to unveil our latest video:"Students' Vision of Our Vision" via YouTube.  This 3 minute video gives the viewer an overview of our district vision, through the eyes of our students, highlighting some of the many wonderful programs our district has to offer.

Our video premiered at the recent Digital Promise League of Innovative Schools bi-annual meeting in mid-October, where it won an award for Outstanding District Overview.  The League of Innovative Schools is a coalition of 102 forward-thinking school districts from across the country. Membership in the League is based on a combination of superintendent and school district qualifications, and we have proudly been a member since 2014.

We would like to thank all of the students, faculty, and staff at the Pascack Valley Medical Center, part of the Hackensack Meridian Health Network of award winning hospitals, for helping to put this together.  We would like to extend a special thank you to Mrs. Elizabeth Manzella and Mr. Michael Sherman, along with their respective classes, for their efforts in this production.
