Lots of bullying and racism. If your child is dark brown, they will be targeted and shunned. This is a school of intolerant kids who shame kids who are different.

Kids who struggle with learning disabilities are treated harshly and shamed. I was appalled. Scare tactics, punishments, "sign-ins" and no contact with parents about this. Awful school, unless you have a kid who is perfect.

I understand why people like this school. It's for driven families with hard-driven kids, which accounts for the scores. However, if your child is having trouble, the place is a nightmare of punishments and discipline with very little parent/teacher communication. They have newsletters and mass emails all the time, but try to get a teacher to talk with you OR the principal to respond to an individual in a meaningful way, and you will be disappointed. If your kid colors outside the lines, beware.

Parents involvement helps in grooming at early stage, school encourages participation in extra curricular and co-curricular activities.

Park Village is an amazing school. The teachers and staff are excellent and extremely well educated. The test scores are high due to the fact that there is so much care from the teachers. The fact that the foundation funds additional programs along with those already funded by the district makes it even more appealing. PV education and opportunity rivals that of any private school and in most cases surpasses them. We are very fortunate to have our child attending Park Village.

Would like to express it in thoughts instead of ratings. First of all "Parents Involvement" is the most common word used around the campus and yes Parents are involved right from PTA to everything else. Let's come to a topic of education and what Parents Involvement" means. Basically as parents, are we sharing the load of a teacher? OR because school rely too much on a technology that "concept of teaching in a class" is disappearing? In addition, homeworks are printed papers (OK so far) and Compass Learning (which is again on computer), so basically it is parents who ended up teaching the kids for a curriculum provided by school. So if we remove the curriculum part then how different is this from a home study. Not sure is this the way we want our kids to be educated.

Park Village IS different. It is unfair to generalize. I have had more help from the pricipal and RSP teacher here than any other school my kids have been to including out of state. We love Park Village! The prinipal and teachers are caring and helpful. Parent involvment is extremely high. It is has been a wonderful experience for us.

School and School District Beware!!! This Principal and the RSP Teacher discriminate against children with disabilities and/or disorders. File your complaints with the CDE to get rid of these bias bureaucrats. If you are concerned about the Protected by Superintendent John Collins Poway Unified School District Principals research Highland Ranch Principal - Anita Wilson for yourself. Hum, how many parent complaints does it takes to get rid of a principal for bullying and lying? Park Village Elementary is no different!!!!
