I am so excited my children are attending this, one of my son's has sensory issues the teachers have been amazing with him. He is above average in letter and number recognition. He is excited to go to school and I am so excited we have gone the route of public school over private.

This past school year was our family's first year at Parkview. We were a little nervous to send our student here. After attending PTC meetings, school activities, and meeting the falcutly and staff, we are very pleased with the school. My student had a wonderful time and got mostly above average grades in the first grade. We are very eager to send our other children to this school. One thing I would like to see improved is parent involvement. It seems the same parents are always volunteering. Let's get some more parents involved to really make a difference.

The bilingual program is excellent and is helping my son to understand both languages (english and spanish). Also, the school is trying to get better, having many improvements with a short budget, so we can see the teacher's and principal's desire and devotion to do the best for our kids.

My daughter had attended the district 46 for her 1st year and a half and my daughter was not doing so well in her academic s. I would ask for help and get an answer of that I should find a tutor. The district cared more about funding the school's external then internal. To where my child suffered a lot because of this. Teachers weren't evolved with parents at all. Then I came to Parkview and noticed a change in my daughter s attitude and confidence. Her grades went up and that was a huge plus do to her being so behind. Teachers pushing us parents and staying on top of us to make sure we were continuing studies at home. The principle is so involved with students, teachers and parents. My thanks to a great job in what you teachers and staff do with our children. Your focus and efforts are phenomenall!!!

Parkview is a excellent school. The efforts of the principal, teachers, parents and students working together shows in the growth of my children. I see a dedication to the personal growth of my children in all areas including education, behavior and school pride. I see the need of the district to run a balance budget impacting each school but parents need to step up and help the school board take our schools into the future. The personal involvement of the principal in recruiting parents to help out the school is incredibile. Great job teachers in focusing on the kids and not the negative of NCLB rules. S. Keeran

It is a very nice school, first I was worried looking at the school. But later on I was happy and satisfied. My son was encouraged and was well taken care in his studies.

My child loves Parkview. Teachers are great, and they are kind and friendly for both students and parents. Parents can talk to teachers anytime about anything. Principle is visible, and ready to listen to parents and students. Parents involvement is not that good in daily basis, but it is not that difficult to find parent volunteers for school functions and events. I also should mention that Parkview is a spotlight school. As a parent, I'm very happy that my child gets a chance to attend to this great school.

Parkviews priorities need to be looked at. Had various meeting with Principal, teacher and counselors and none of them will listen to the parents input. My child is transferring in the new year and my other child when comes time will not go to Parkview.

Parkview has be very supportive in regards to all my childs needs. District 300 is very unorganized and unprepared to fufill it's students needs but I have to say that Parkview has stood behind me 110%... Now if only the district to get on the same page!

I have not been very pleased with the mountains of rediculous rules this school has. Many children are constantly in trouble since it seems that they can not breathe without getting a card flipped. Teachers do not give children a fair chance to defend themselves when a problem occurs with another student, they believe the first student that approaches them. I think that they are creating 'Taddle Talers' and there is too much attention being payed to the harmless things and not enough to the important things. They try to teach courtesy and kindness-yet a teacher once raised her voice in disrespect to me in front of my child for parking in the wrong area. My child will soon be attending another school. I really miss Mr.Meyer.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

The test results by subgroup show how the designated group of students is performing in comparison to the general population.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Illinois used the Illinois Standards Achievement Test (ISAT) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and in grades 4 and 7 in science. The ISAT is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Illinois. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

In 2013 the Illinois State Board of Education raised the performance expectations for the ISAT in reading and math. These expectations have been adjusted to better align with the Common Core State Standards, a multi-state initiative that established year-by-year guidelines outlining the grade-specific skills and content students need to stay on the path to college and career readiness. The higher expectations of the new standards will result in a downward shift of where students rank in meeting or exceeding standards.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
