All 3 of my children are attending or have attended Parkview. The staff is extremely dedicated to the development of my children and themselves. I am very happy with the overall community is generated by the staff and parents at our school.

I am most impressed by the strong curriculum at Parkview. Students are challenged in every class and at every level. This, combined with a warm, caring environment makes it a wonderful school!


Posted December 14, 2010

In my experience Parkview's teachers are burnt out, when walking through the school I am shocked at the number of teachers I hear yelling at or scolding the kids. The actual class sizes are much larger then shown on this site, there are 25+ in my child's kindergarten class. In general it just does not seem to be a positive learning environment. However, I know that there are some great teachers in this school as well and I do not want to take away from them, in our years at Parkview we have had 2 great teachers and 2 that I am sad they were exposed to.

My daughter has been attending Parkview Elementary since the first grade, and since that day I have never had a complaint about any staff member or the school itself. Every single employee cares for the students as if they are their own children. I can't wait for my youngest daughter to start school.

Parkview is great! It gives plenty of opportunity for parents to be involved. My sons have both had a very successful year after transferring 200 miles. Through community sports, there is plenty of opportunity to enjoy after school activities. The staff has been friendly, helpful, and caring.
