Welcome to Pleasant Hill Elementary School! We are excited to have you part of the community!

We encourage all to join the PTA to show your support for the school and, most importantly, your children. You are joining a wonderful school with a reputation for academic excellence – Pleasant Hill has earned the Academic Excellence Award on the Illinois Honor Roll for 8 consecutive years, a distinction that goes to high-achieving schools in Illinois. Our entire learning community – students, parents, staff members and civic groups – is focused on the best interests of our students, helping us live up to our motto: Learners Today, Leaders Tomorrow. As the PTA, we sponsor new events along with traditional favorites during the year in order to maintain a strong support system for our school and children. We invite you to learn more and stay connected through our Survival Guide, website, newsletter & facebook. Have a great school year.
