Pleasantville High School students compete in The Challenge   Four student scholars from Pleasantville High School in Pleasantville will compete against peers from Putnam Valley High School  in Round One of "The Challenge," an award-winning television quiz show for high school students. The matchup will kick off the show's 13th season on Wednesday, December 16, at 6:30pm on MSG Varsity, according to a press release.
