PVMS Mission Statement
Our mission is to provide a rigorous, world-class education which inspires students to become active, compassionate, and collaborative lifelong learners who understand and respect other people and their differences.
Pine View Middle School is Pasco County's First International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme World School
We are so excited to partner with you through this next phase in our journey!
Learner Profile of the Month: Caring
As a PVMS Family, we focus on a different Learner Profile (a trait that we strive to display to become the best people possible) every month. For February, we are focusing on being Caring. We are Caring when we show empathy, compassion and respect towards the needs and feeling of others and we act to make a positive difference in the lives of others. PVMS staff members have pink #IBSTRONG tickets that they are giving out throughout the month to students who are displaying that they are Caring. Teachers will also be choosing students for “Student of the Month” who are an example to others in exemplifying that they are Caring. We encourage students to wear pink on Fridays during February to represent our Learner Profile of the month.
You will see signs displaying the Learner Profiles throughout the school. The profiles are also posted above the white board in each classroom. Teachers have a second set of magnetic Learner Profiles that will make it easier to highlight which Profiles are relevant to the current classroom activity.

Odyssey of the Mind Competition
Pine View Middle School’s Odyssey of the Mind team will be competing Saturday, February 23, 2019 at the Gulf Coast Regional Odyssey of the Mind Tournament, to be held starting at 8:00AM at the Cypress Creek Middle / High School in Wesley Chapel.
Odyssey of the Mind is a creative problem-solving program for students K-12 and college. It provides students with the opportunity to learn creative problem solving, teamwork, brainstorming, self-reliance, and respect for individual strengths. Under the guidance of an adult coach (usually a parent), teams work on solving a Long Term Problem and practicing for the solving of Spontaneous Problems at the tournament.
For the Long Term Problem, teams develop a theatrical and engineering solution over several months to one of five specific situational problems. Solutions may range from building mechanical devices to presenting interpretations of literary classics. Each team also competes in the Spontaneous Problems category, where the students develop brainstorming skills to solve problems given to them at the competition.
At the Tournament this Saturday, the PVMS team will be presenting their solution to this year’s Problem 5: “Opposites Distract”. They have been working very hard to create “a humorous performance about a sneaky character that distracts others while trying to take control” in a team-created set of circumstances. The members of the PVMS team are: Noah Draskovich (PVMS, Year 1), Scarlett Kelley (PVMS, Year 1), Skylar Krueger (CSRMS, 8th Grade), Aleah Rosas (PVMS, Year 1), Lily Walsh (PVMS, Year 3), and Quinn Walsh (PVES, 5th Grade). Their coach is Andrea Ramirez.
