Great school, great staff. The rater referring to the expulsion and 'breathing funny causing expulsions' is absolutely unfair and incorrect. Obviously they think they know the particulars of the situation and they post their inaccurate representations on a board that people read when making decisions on a school. The school is safe and the staff is very responsive. I specifically moved into the district because of this school. I made the right choice and I would recommend this school to anyone who wants a great school where their kids can be kids and succeed. As for the rater with the expulsion issues, don't let your troubled kid attempt to buy a handgun from another troubled kid at school.

Solid faculty, community feel, year-round programs, music, athletics, advanced courses and consequences for behavior. Well managed, committed PTO parents. Diverse community. Heard that a kid who broke the law was expelled, which was exactly the right course of action in keeping all kids safe. Superintendent has some work to do to demonstrate his value. Principal and Assistant Principal are outstanding.

Excellent!! Students know each other and support each other, regardless of what grade they are in. Most teachers are responsive to parents and are willing to collaborate to ensure a great educational experience for children. Rigorous education with high value placed on technology.

I have a sophomore son that graduated from Parkview with honors and even earned the American legion award which is the highest honor for students to receive and is given to only one male and one female student. It was a great honor for us since we came from Europe and became US citizens. The teachers there work so hard that I didn't have to lift a finger and the best part is that even now in high school he is doing so well. He never received esl. The girl that received the same honor was an American so I don't think they are bias against anyone, all teachers are American why would they be bias against anyone? My daughter is there now on 5th grade she is doing great too, not in pep(which are the advanced ones that my son was) classes yet but every child is different.

I love Park View school. I had two kids that allready graduated from Park View and now I have a son in second grade. The teachers are great spend lot of time with our kids and I think we don't thank them enough and just want to say thanks to all the teachers. I also love the music program, I think is the best my two older kids were in iev.

Park View provides a warm and welcoming atmosphere, with sound academics. It has a diverse student body, both ethnically, culturally, and economically. In addition, Park View's warm, friendly environment welcomes and encourages parental involvement. The rules and expectations are clear. I've found all the teachers for both my children approachable and willing to work toward the good of the child. The prinicpal is professional and when contacted has always gotten back to me within a reasonable amount of time. The school has a wonderful music program, appropriate early intervention programs, and an enrichment program for student who excel. I also enjoy that my children don't have to change schools 2 to 3 times, before attend high school. Park View is a k-8 building, which is not common today, but allows for a a strong sense of community among the students, parents and staff.

Principal is unresponsive to parent concerns- takes multiple emails, phone calls, and in person visits to even speak to her. Teachers are cold, rude, and do not even attempt to teach at age level. Just check out the scores- very low, especially in 3rd grade, which demonstrates the lack of preparation in the early grades. Fundraising in the top priority- selling smelly pencils (smencils), market day, and the candy/wrapping paper fundraiser (where for $9 you get a tiny box of chocolate bars in damaged wrapping). ESL students are the priority, so that English speaking students end up getting a 'watered-down' curriculum. Shameful- I wish I could afford private school!

My son is a fifth grader and loves Parkwiew. The music and art programs are really great. They allow kids hands on opportunity, even on the big projects. Academically, the school soars. My son received straight A's last semester. Go PARKVIEW!

I think that the teachers are great, my son attends the school and he actually enjoys going, they have male teachers which is great since my son doesn't have a father, they act as a parent figure to him.
