I miss this school. We moved 2 miles and are out of this school district sad to say. My son attended Kindergarten and he LOVED it and LEARNED so much! Now he attends a Northville school, Thorton Creek and he begs me to take him back to Parkview. My son left kindergarten reading at a third grade level and doing advance math problems! GREAT JOB TO THE EFFORTS AT PARKVIEW. This school is AWESOME REALLY!!! TOO MUCH TO RAVE ABOUT!!!

The principal at Parkview is wonderful. I had an issue come up early in the year and I received immediate feedback with action behind it. If your child is bored, you should seek testing to place in a more approprate grade. Not everything is the teacher or principal's fault. Parents need to take some responsibility for educating their children as well. The schools need more parent involvment...can't even get enough help with the kid's parties or fun school events, its a shame. Stop complaining and get involved!!!! We are lucky to have such wonderful schools here.

I teach at Parkview Elementary and have the privilege to work with a team of caring professionals under the direction of a dynamic principal! She understands the educational and emotional needs of students and staff and sets a culture of leadership and success. Parkview is an exceptional place for teaching and learning!

Our family loves this school! I have a second grader who attended Parkview for two years. All of the teachers are professional while a good mix of fun for the kids. Music, art, and Spanish are top notch here. Parent involement is evident throughout the school. I was always invited to help out in the classroom and throughout the school. I highly recommend this school to everyone.

About the tests


In 2013-2014 Michigan used the Michigan Educational Assessment Program (MEAP) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in math, reading and writing; in grades 5 and 8 in science; and in grades 6 and 9 in social studies. Currently, GreatSchools' ratings reflect 2013 MEAP results; ratings will be updated after 2014 Michigan Merit Examination (MME) results are released. The MEAP is a standards-based test, which measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Michigan. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level.

Beginning in the 2011-2012 school year, the Michigan State Board of Education implemented new definitions of what it means to be proficient on the MEAP test. In addition, they have recalculated past years' results using these new standards for proficiency, making the above year-over-year results comparable.

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.
