Mission and Vision
OUR MISSION: To present the historic Pleasant Valley School as an iconic reminder of the Texas one room school era.
OUR VISION: To conserve and preserve the Pleasant Valley School for years to come as a historical reminder of the beginnings of our vast Texas educational system.

We encourage that the local community:
Own, maintain and preserve the historical site and building locally known as the Pleasant Valley School,
Maintain and display the historical records and artifacts of the site and to provide educational opportunities regarding the School and its history to the public,
Maintain the property for the encouragement and pursuance of general community activities as a rural community center.
