This is a great school. The staff are very friendly, professional, and safety-conscious, the facilities clean and well maintained, and the curriculum excellent. A great school for my daughter.

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!
—Submitted by a parent

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.

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.
