We've had excellent experiences with the Virginia schools concerning our children. Virginia public schools also have a great special education program with very patient and loving teachers.

I truly believe that Parkview is the best elementary school in northern Minnesota! The staff is wonderful, the school is clean and easily accessible, the test scores are the highest in our area, and the kids love to attend! Thanks to all the great teachers in Virginia!

I think Parkview is a wonderful school with excellent teachers and staff. I have had two children attend Parkview and am very pleased with the education they received there.
