It feels like our child is taking school with family - everyone is so friendly and interested in the children. We feel they are safe and protected in the envirnoment there. The teachers are excellent and have great ways of getting the children interested in what they are learning.
It is an awesome school! the teachers are great! and you learn in a fun way!
My youngest son is entering 8th grade, and, as his brothers before him, attended ParkView since 6th grade. As a parent, it is such a delight to listen in as they talk about fun assignments that they had with the same teacher. Likewise, I find a sense of satisfaction when they sincerely tell others how much they like and take pride in ParkView. Believe me when I say that I never had to force any one of my sons to attend school at ParkView. Their attendance records are perfect because each one of my sons wanted to make them perfect. With all honesty, it is disheartening for me to read negative reports reflected here because I have been a parent of ParkView basically since it began. Therefore, I have witnessed an abundance amount of the school's history and the intentions of admin and staff are sincere. My name is Sue Ferguson.
I have been a parent of ParkView basically since it began. My oldest son graduated from Park View and is now a high school graduate as well. It is important to note that he is daily challenged with Tourette Syndrome. This being disclosed, I can say, with all certainty, that Park View provided my son with the tools he needed to launch into high school. Their special education department provided all the services he required to succeed and them some. The positive structure and family type environment provided my son with security. As a parent I felt safe knowing he was being educated by the Park View team of teachers and administrators. My middle son just graduated this year and is now ready for high school. He is a student that takes his education seriously and will tell anyone that Park View is a school that is serious about teaching.
Parkview is the worst school I've ever dealt with! The teachers are unprofessional and seem to be lacking in modern teaching techniques. They will teach your children to be cattle.They take away there individuality and freedom of expression!
I do not like this school at all. It is way abnormally small, you feel closterfobic, their is no gym, some teachers are rude and the blue book is for kindergarteners, if you do not get your adjena signed evey night, or forget to wash your PVMS shirt, you get written up, then after a few times, you will get friday school for nothing! it is a terrible school and you should send your student to Glassford or Bradshaw.
I am very happy with this school. The small class size assists with the teachers ability to know and understand the learning styles of individual students. My daughter is not only excelling at the school, but is happy to get up every morning to go there.
Great teacher student ratio Family oriented community No students slip through the cracks
I am disappointed with this school now, It's going down hill in everyway. I'm happy this is my daughter last year here.
Park Veiw has been a possitive experience for all 3 of my kids. The teachers are personable and curriculum challenging without being overwhelming. They encourage parent involvement at all levels. My kids have had no problem in transitioning to High School, in fact, much of what they learned was repeated their first year. I highly recommend this school.
I wanted to thank Parkview Middle School for giving our children a great middle school experience. Three of our five children have already attended and two more are up and coming. Parkview teachers,staff and volunteers have always had our childrens best interst in mind when it comes to education and a positive middle school experience. The teaching is a positive experience and I believe this is why Parkview is an excelling school and so are their students.
Park View has been a welcome change for my son. The smaller classes result in a more controlled atmosphere. The teachers have accepted my son's unique learning style and encouraged him in his areas of interest. The curriculum includes fun learning opportunities as well as hands on activities. Many times the lessons are reworked so that they can reflect current events, i.e. studying about hurricanes during the time when the three major hurricanes hit Florida. The school has many after school clubs where students can get involved. The librarian has helped my son find books that interest him. The principal seems genuinely interested in every child. I feel that this school provides a healthy atmosphere where middle schoolers can learn and grow as independent thinkers.
Horrible, what else can you really say? Do not put your child in this school especially if you moved from a large city. The only thing you will get are complaints and a bad education. You are warned!
