I am a former student of Parkview Elementary and I thought that Parkview was a great school. The teachers there were awesome and I liked the activities that were held such as, walden west science camp, raging waters, gold rush and colonial days. If parents are looking for an elementary school Parkview is the one!
I am a former student who attended Parkview for the last two months of the Sixth Grade. In my opinion Parkview was an excellent school. Before coming to this school I had attended a Middle School 6-8. Having to switch schools at the end of the year was hard, but the Parkview Teachers made it seem like I was there for the entire year. I had Mrs. Dixson for 6th grade, and absoulutely loved her... she made sure I was put into the correct Math class and helped me catch up. This school has a great staff, and just awesome cultural activities due to the cultural diversity. I can say that I'm glad I transfered to Parkview.
Parkview is a very good school, with lots of excellent teachers. I am also very imressed by the principal s leadership. He really is interested in the children, and has the kind of enthusiasm, ideas, and energy that I would expect to see in a principal of a really good private school. He understands children. He has a style that really encourages and motivates children and parents too. His leadership definitely helps to make this school an exceptional place for our children. I hope he stays with Parkview for many years to come.
I am a 6th grade student and member of stundent council. I can honestly say the Parkview is a great school to go to. The teachers are great and really take great effort in to teaching us! The parents get involved in alot of school activities and help the school improve. Here at Parkview we do a lot of fun things like, the fourth graders dress up for Gold Rush, the fifth graders dress up and do things for Colonial Days, and us Sixth graders get to go to Walden West Science Camp, also Raging Waters at the end of the year! So Parkview is filled with fun and education!
My child is a 1st grader at Parkview. This year my child started with the only bilingual teacher in the school. Due to lack of students enrolled at the school, this teacher was transferred to another school. Some of the children from this class were moved to a K-1 class, others disbursed to other teachers. I agree with the fact of teachers that are not bilingual have to take more time to teach others while holding up children that speak english as a first language. I don't feel that this is the teachers' fault. Children who speak two languages have just as much right to learn. And there should be a bilingual teacher or teachers made available for this. However, the only one at Parkview was let go. While many parents are involved. I don't feel that the parents concerns are heard as they should be. Also, I feel the principal leans too much on stating that he is a child psychologist. His job is principal, not child therapy.... He should be stating that he is a principal... And go out of his way to make sure that the kids are getting the best education possible. Even the kids that need a bilingual teacher. Overall it has been my experience that Parkview has a number of great teachers. But I feel that the office staff, and the principal are a cause of the school lacking in other areas.
This really is a great school. My son is in 1st grade this year and he is reading like crazy. Tha only thing that I feel is a bit of a downside is that there is a large number of kids beginning school that don't speak English. This means the teachers are having to basically do double the amount of teaching since they have to speak to these kids in their native language. I don't think that it's fair for the others and I think it might even interfere with the learning, since the other kids have to wait while the teacher explains things a second time to the other kids.
