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.
Principal really needs to be replaced! She has no notion of differentiated education. Many parents complain of their children getting bored. Principal refuses to address the concern. We have heard great things about other Novi elementary schools - they seem to respond to parent input.
I have a child that attends this school and so far the teachers have been wonderful. The teachers I have met so far provide a great atmosphere towards developing the young minds. However, due to the Principle Leadership, I am giving this school a rating of less than 5. Mrs. Michos is far from being a strong leader or someone you can have confidence to get the job done. Another thing I find lacking in the Principle Leadership is on more than one occasion she has pushed accountability on others. The times I had to talk with Mrs. Michos, I felt like I wasted time out of my schedule to hear political rhetoric instead of defined action plans. For school events I have attended, she is disorganized with no control of the surroundings. Parkview is lucky to have strong leadership and devotion in the Teachers to carry that school forward.
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!
The principal leadership at this school is extremely poor, and brings down most of the staff. However, my child was lucky enough to get Mrs. Ukrop for 2nd grade this year and that made all the difference-she is the best teacher I have ever encountered in any school. All of her students love her with good reason; she actually cares about her students.
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.
