    The Pine Valley Central School District is a rural district which covers an area of approximately 120 square miles in the northeast section of Chautauqua County and the northwest section of Cattaraugus County.
     
    The Pine Valley Central School is approximately 14 miles from the Village of Fredonia and 25 miles from the city of Jamestown.  The area connects easily to metropolitan Buffalo and Erie by using the Southern Tier Expressway (Interstate 86/Rt. 17) and the New York State Thruway (I-90) which are close by.  Thus numerous two and four institutions are quite accessible.
     
    The two largest villages in the district are Cherry Creek and South Dayton.  Both villages have populations of approximately 750 persons.  The area is largely residential and heavily agricultural, although numerous small businesses and industries add to the economic base.  The beautiful and vast countryside with nearby Allegany State Park, the largest in New York State, offers numerous year-round outdoor activities: hunting, fishing, hiking and camping.  The area is especially noted for its fine recreational facilities with many excellent golf courses, ski resorts, state parks, and boating opportunities.
     
    In addition to the cultural and enrichment activities associated with Buffalo and Erie, there are similar opportunities nearby.  Chautauqua InstituteRoger Tory Peterson InstituteReg Lenna Civic Center, the Buffalo Philharmonic and Regional Theatre offer programs, speakers and entertainment of wide appeal.
     
    The Community also has a large population of Amish within the district's boundaries.  The Amish offer not only a cultural aspect to the community but they provide services from woodworking and cabinetry making to baked goods and quilts at reasonable prices.  All of this combines to provide the Pine Valley Central School District residents with an excellent quality of life at a moderate cost of living.
