Park Vista has been horrible for the 2013-2014 school year. My children have been getting hurt and so have other children and their parents were not advised of anything. The principals Green and Joubert are too busy trying to hide that their are any problems to make the school look good that they allow this to happen.

Park Vista Elementary School: My grandchildren are SO excited to be going back to Park Vista after attending Cresswell. I'm sure they will do much better this year and learn more. Thanks Park Vista!

This school does not teach. The teachers give no help to children or their parents!!! The principals are useless. My 4 th. grader has 3 to 4 hours of home work a night and is failing . My 1st. grader is failing her teacher missed a lot of school then decided to retire . This school is HORRIBLE !!!

I have just graduated from park vista.I think this school performers well in books,but the teachers there don`t really help the children. Form a former students point of view parents should think about this very carefully! Iam a 3.5 student their but last year I almost lost my tittle because my math teacher did not want to help me.PARENTS take this notice seriously if you want your kid to excelll in life.

I find Park Vista to be a wonderful school with high standards and caring teachers. We had one problem this year but the principal and teachers took care of it as soon as they knew of it. I am pleased that my child had this school offered to him.

I must agree with the previous review. The students have expectations that exceed the faculty. They begin exchanging classes and carrying backpacks that weigh half of their body weight in second grade. This is the place where creativity is stifled, and that process is deemed as best practice. Taking notes rather than hands on is the norm and begins in first grade. I have been far from impressed and shed many tears. If you have other options, run toward them!

My daughter has attended Park Vista in the past and now my son is presently enrolled. My experience with the principal is one of the worst kind. He doesn't greet the parents when they arrive on campus and he has no interpersonal realtionship skills at all. One day, I went to school to find out some information on a particular subject. Well, in the front was a child no older than 10 performing a secretary's duty. I found that repulsive and it made me extremely angry that I had to explain something to a much younger person. I am in the process of trying to enroll my son at some other school so I NEVER have to interact with that principal again.
