Great school all my kids have been going to Parkview. The teachers are all outstanding and they care about the kids learning experience. Very positive and a very safe school.
This is a great school for my son. He was in kinder and had a wonderful experience. He is continuing loving school and doing well in first grade. I believe he needs the basics and all subject matter are taught here. I wish there was more technology and if that wa the case, I would have added a star. We are a transfer from our neighborhood school which is a failing school to Parkview. I like that it's a small school, good teachers,nice kids and parents, good leadership. And of course my son has a supportive home life and his parents support his education every day. It's not all the school or the teachers, it's also what parents do at home that makes at least 50-80% of the difference.
Principal and Teachers make this school a great environment for learning and creativity. 'No child left behind' truly applies here. Keep it up!
I am happy to share an important note. KUDOS to the staff and principal for making an outstanding decision about visits by unexpected parents during education time. From one very happy parent :)
I think this is a great school. My son will definitely apply for a zone transfer to this school when he is ready for kinder next July. The school is well organized, clean, and staff is great in all grade levels. This school is a hidden gem of the district as far as I am concerned.
My son has been going to this school since the First grade and I have nothing but good things to say about it. We moved during the summer so I had to get a zone transfer. I have a 4 year old that will start Kinder but we're zoned for Greg Rogers so I put in a transfer for her to attend Parkview. I love this school!
It is the best school. My doughter has been in diferent schools and this is by far the best!
My kid it's in first grade in Parkview, I highly recommend this school because it has the bilingual program, he is making a lot of improvement in the english language, math, reading and writing. His teacher it's an excellent person he encourages the kids to be better persons and students, her name is Miss Abrenica. I'm so happy with the school in general.
Excellent teacher quality - we've been at parkview for 4 years now and every year the teachers amaze me with their knowledge, talent, and teaching skills!
We were stationed in San Diego for 2 1/2yrs and both my son's attended Parkview and I have been really pleased with the quality of teaching and the curriculum that the school has to offer. My oldest attended 1st and 2nd grade. Both years have been a great experience for him his teachers Mrs. Reed and Mrs Johnson both great teachers and have made my son enjoy his years there. My youngest attended kinder with Mrs. Bear a fantastic and outstanding teacher I thank her for her hard work. The Principal and staff are all friendly and wonderful. I have enjoyed this school and my boys have. Curriculum and standards of learning is great. Both my son's were awarded 'Student of the Month'
Great teachers - caring, knowledgable, fun! solid curicculum. administrative staff needs some customer service skills. Parent - teacher involvement important and encouraged!
Parkview Elementary, as a complete entity, has proven to be disorganized. Having recently moved to Chula Vista, I placed my son in Parkview with hopes of some stability. There has been a consistant and problematic lack of communication from staff to parent. After requesting a close corespondence with the school and teacher in regard to my son, including my request for advised constructive at-home activities which may have intrigued his interest or assisted in any obsticals, I was repetedly discouraged. On many occassions I was advised of school events late, if at all. When my son won an award, I received an invite postmarked the day of. This facility offered quick, simple responses to my concerns, falling short of meeting the needs of my son as a student and I as a parent. Although, my son met or exceeded all grade level requirments, his expierence has lacked quality enrichment and reliability.
My child has visual challenges and I am so happy that his issues have been addressed by each teacher he's had with compassion, understanding and a sincere willingness to assist and to provide with my child with any additional resources necessary. It is very comforting to know that the teachers as well as Mr. Padilla, the principal, really care and strive to give the best education/resources available.
Although I don't see eye to eye with the principal on some issues, teachers like Mrs. Koopman, Ms. Wentz and Mr. Cross make this school a great place to learn and grow. They have each provided my children with great oppportunities and the extra attention that kids need to be succesful and feel confident. I look forward to another year and new teachers and experiences this year.
