Amazing school!!! My son has attended 11th grade and is currently a senior there. All staff members are wonderful. I love how they keep their students engaged in education. If I have any questions and email the teachers, they respond quickly. Overall it is a great school. My son enjoyed his time at Park Vista and is looking forward graduation and attending college. - a parent
The APs , counselors, teachers, and coaches keep their student's engaged in education and always persist the students to take rigorous courses and they dont have an issue with giving future education advice.
The students and teachers at times have this amazing bond with one another however it would be great if this amazing bond could be formed within the student body amongs the different diversities of students present.
Everyone has their cliques and groups. No idiosyncrasy is present- almost everyone dresses the same- MK bags, sky blue jeans, expensive shoes and sandals, polos, Sperrys, keds, toms, leggings, ironed thin hair, on bad days messy buns and sweat pants. And black girls need to be treated with more respect. Some to most of the students are very snobby, disrespectful to other students and teachers, ungrateful. In the end, this schools has a great education system, but the social life amongs students is just poor. Friendships are made and held with fake 2 faced kids. In the end you just have to find the crowed you fit in with and trust me you'll find it. Like mentioned earlier everyone has their groups they fit in.
Most but not all of the teacher's have experience in teaching their student's. Some teacher's have a better way of teaching their material then others and some of the teachers have what it takes to reach their students effectively.
I transferred here from the IB program in Atlantic High School and compared to Atlantic this school is HORRIBLE. this school has little options (such as classes and electives) for students like me. They also transferred me to regular classes so I went from IB to regular. This school is way way WAY too crowded for me. The students are THE most disrespectful kids I have ever met in my life. The guidance counselors offer no guidance like they are supposed to. If I can give this school 0 stars, I would.
We just moved to FL from out of state and chose a home based on the proximity to "good" schools. I'm afraid we have yet to be impressed with Park Vista. They decided to let all 3000 students share the same lunch period this year, which means there's no place for students to sit and eat, except on the ground with the ants. My calls to the school concerning this and another issue were never returned. My child is in an Honors Language Arts class where the teacher talks about assorted topics which may or may not have to do with what they are supposed to be learning. Dress code is not enforced. The athletics programs are good, which is the only positive my child talks about. Apparently the bar is set pretty low in FL for educating our children. Don't our children deserve better? I'm hoping to have a better impression of the school by the end of the year. If not, we will likely be moving our child to another school.
