My school is fun i like the books my school improved by the number of students...


Posted February 9, 2014

This is my first year at Parkview and I do feel welcomed and unlike my last school there is minimal violence and bullying has not been a problem for me so far, but some teachers should realize that some students may have issues and may not always be in the best mood and although the counselor and student resource officer do an amazing job thinking of ideas to help some teachers continue to punish people doing stuff that is approved instead of people breaking the rules and not paying attention. Overall I have to give the school credit for a lot of things but some things do need to change.


Posted January 8, 2014

Parkview is a very great school. Just the hallways are a little ghetto and crazy sometimes but otherwise its great. And The Lunch Room is VERY loud sometimes.


Posted November 17, 2013

It's great if you're in the advanced program... Hallways are ghetto as heck, people are always saying ni**a.

I have my second child there and I love the teachers and how they go the extra mile for all the kids. It is well run and organized.

The 6 grade gold teachers are truly invested in the students. My son has really matured this year.

Parkview is a great school because they have a program where the boys and girls are separated to help the kids focus on whats important and they use emamil to reach out to the parents and let them know whats going on.

i am currently putting a second child thru Parkview. The faculty and staff love kids and will help in any way they can to ensure the child's success in school and in life.

My youngest child is now attending. Both have enjoyed the school, and the teachers are very involved with children's successes in academics.

This is our 4th child we have sent to Parkview and it is a wonderful school. The building needs updated a bit but still a great place.

6 Gold Teachers are awesome! They go the extra mile to connect with the students and make learning fun.

I've taken time to visit/observe my son & his teachers in the classrooms, and students in the halls. From what I saw. I'm certain the education quality can & must be raised. The tolerance level for staff must be lowered. Re-examine the curriculum, very ineffective we must return to the core for 6th & 7th graders, english, math, social studies, science, an art, language and IT added by 8th grade. This sets an unwavering foundation for future subjects. These are the main courses government tested, give it all you've got, challenge our kids they deserve it.

Overall, I would have to say I have had very positive experiences with both of my kids who have attended Parkview. However, I do have to question some people's judgement when the HomeEc Dept. sent home the real-life babies during ISTEP week. ISTEP week was not a good choice for a time to assign this project when they had been stressing that the kids get plenty of rest so they could do their best, now, was it?

Okay, you go in the front door and can walk right past the office without anyone questioning you. Half the time you have to announce yourself to the office staff because they are too busy talking about what they're going to eat for lunch. The kids are allowed to sign themselves in and out. They are not monitored thoroughly enough in my opinion. Teachers allow way too much to go on without consequencing the students. The students are calling people during class without permission and the teachers do not do anything about it. Overall, I have not been impressed with Parkview. They have some major kinks that need to be worked out.

Both of my sons have attended Parkview. The administration is great, very knowledgable and genuinely concerned about the kids. The music department is top notch...Congratulations Mr. Akers!

My daughter is in her third year at this school and loves it. She has just about hated all other schools her entire life but loves this one. Over the summer she says that she cant wait to go back! Her grades have improved also.

Posted June 4, 2005

I am a student at Parkview middle school and next year will be my third year there. While i have attended Parkview, I have had no problems with the school and/or the teachers or other students enrolled there. I dont think most people that look at Parkview think it is a good school because they have heard it is a rough school but if you went to school there or has a child that goes to school there you would see that it really isn't.
—Submitted by a former student


Posted October 18, 2004

I think that Parkview Middle isn't very good. The teachers do not care about us, and they are mean. Parkview isn't a good school. When I'm a father, my kid aint goin here.

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.
