Park View is a gem in the Minneapolis School District. The entire school is very dedicated to helping each child succeed in school, from very caring and knowledgable teachers to an accessible and fabulous principal. As with Montessori schools, the curriculum is customized for each individual child thus allowing children to excell at whatever level they are at. It also teaches the older students more responsiblity and gives them plenty of opportunities to be leaders, mentors and examples to the younger students in their class (each classroom, except kindergarten, has three grade leves). Park View offers music classes band, art, gym, gifted and talented, computer labs, and Spanish. I have three children from sixth grade to third grade who have grown in intelligence and life skills as a result of Park View. I highly recommend it.
