Not a good school. This school will ruin your child's future. This school sucks. Save your money for something worth it not a waste of time.

Actually, the last reviewer doesn't know what they're talking about. This school is in the accreditation process right now and it will be completed in the very near future. In addition, they're going above and beyond any public school with additional accreditations. The state fully recognizes them. They're even a registered 501(c)3. You can't go wrong with Parkview!

Parkview Christian Academy has been a huge blessing for our family. We walked into the building last January for our tour without any expectations. We left with a feeling of peace and a desire to enroll our 3rd grader. Our son, Christian, does not like change and we didn't think he'd want to switch schools mid year. As we walked out of the doors the day of our tour he asked, "Can I start here tomorrow?" We were thrilled. Not only is he getting an excellent education but he is learning more and more about Christianity and understanding our faith. The class sizes are small so the children get more one-on-one attention from the teacher. Everyone in the building is kind and genuinely cares about your child. This year we also enrolled Brady, our 4 year old, into the preschool program. He loves the school as much as his big brother. We've had to make changes in our lifestyle to afford a private education for our children; but it has been more than worth it.

Mrs. Leslie Sullivan is the best teacher and has enriched my child's life with her care and love.

The teachers, staff, and administration of Parkview Christian Academy clearly care about providing a quality education from a Christian worldview. I have seen that demonstrated time and time again. They have communicated that the parents are primarily responsible for raising the children and the school has only been entrusted with a part of that process. The teachers and staff regularly communicate and the concerns I have seen in public schools of not being informed of what my chidren are being taught is of no concern here. I highly recommend Parkview!

There are some very caring parents and teachers at this school. However, the principal has demonstrated lack of leadership, in my opinion, and appears to not take parental concerns seriously. The communication with parents on the part of the principal has been very poor and he seems annoyed by parents who ask questions and demonstrate concern for their children's safety. I highly recommend that anyone considering Parkview ask very tough questions of the principal regarding potential hazards in a 100 yr old building, security concerns and what is being done to address those issues by way of policy, procedure and preventative measures.

Parkview Christian Academy has been my daughter's school since Kindergarten. The academic course work has been challenging and competitive with other public and private schools. She is now in second grade, working on a monthly book report, the annual science fair and weekly 25 word spelling tests. She benefits from 1-14 teacher-student ratio, bible study and strong friendships. The faculty and staff are dedicated to the children's spiritual and developmental growth. We were pleased this year when the school began offering a Spanish class to allow children at the best age to learn a foreign language. My husband and I are pleased to be active volunteers at the school, getting to know our daughter's friends and other families in our community.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

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.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

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.

  • Parkview Christian Academy emphasizes investing in our students. We stress strong academics, provide well-rounded co-curricular activities, and offer a safe place where our students are shown love and acceptance. Our low student to teacher ratio (no class size excedes 20) provides our teachers the opportunity to get to know their students on a more personal level.
