I love Park View Elementary; especially because I come from a Catholic school background and think our school is just as good, if not better.

This is my first time dealing with a school as a parent and I must say that I have been very pleased with Park View. From the principal to the staff I have found them to be pleasant, concerned, and eager to do what it takes for each child to be happy while they are learning. The programs are fun and educational. My daughter loves going to school. What more could a parent want?

When It Comes to caring about the well being of the children and sometimes ones that need more I can't imagine being anywhere else that has shown my kids the love and support that I give at home. My life changed because this school helped me regain what I had to give up years ago. Entrusting my daughter when she had been through so much having a disability that I needed others to help me get her to move forward to a new stage in her life was something I never thought would be possible. The staff, the principal and so many caring parents all give so much to keep the school a welcoming happy place where kids love to learn and are not afraid to say I need help. I Thank Park View for all the Joy it has given me and my family, without them I don't know where or how we would be. Thank you from my daughter's special heart.

It's a great school. All of the teachers are excellent. My kids love to go to school. I have two children attending. Both needed a little extra help and Parkview provides a great intervention class. My oldest daughter has excelled now due to the extra help that she was given with the smaller class size and specialized teachers coming into the classroom.

It's K through 3, so the children come in as babies and leave as big kids. They learn so much in their 4 years there.

I think this school is great. It offers a great education and the staff has been phenominal. While other parents want the school to offer more, they must throw out all of the papers that offer sign-ups for all the 'extras' they do offer. Nurse Peggy Gilmartin is the schools biggest cheerleader and gives our kids the 'mothering' they may need in their hours away from home. Mrs. Lawler coaches them in Phys. Ed but encourages them to be successful in life. As a parent of 2 Parkview children, I have had nothing but a great experience with many teachers I have had cross my family's path, as well as the best speech pathologist I could hope for (Mrs. Sussman.) We will miss Parkview once all of our children are through it...

One of the best things about Parkview Elementary is the staff. Beginning with the Principal, all the way down to the lunch aids. They are truly wonderful, dedicated people who care about our children. Our PFO also merits much praise; the events and fundraisers they plan truly do make a difference. Go Parkview!!

The staff seem to really care about the kids. It is a small school and the staff know all the kids by name. It gives the kids a sense of pride and happiness. My girls have been very lucky with their teachers from Kindergarten through third grade!!

Both of my children have learning disabilities and Parkview has acknowledged and embraced this. When a child starts with their formal education it is very important not to 'loose' them. It is important to engage them right from the start. It is important to realize their full potential and tap into what is good within them each individually. Parkview does these things and more. Each of my children has different needs and different learning styles, as does every child for that matter. The staff at Parkview work together to figure out what works best to educate each child and utilizes the method which works. My children have both learned from an early age that their teacher is on their side and they can trust that they will help them along. We believe that Parkview understands the 'it takes a village' idea . Our Principal Mrs. Devine actually knows each and every child's name as well as if they have any special needs. Our school psychologist Dr. Lynch actually helps the child (and us parents) make good choices and see their potential. Our front desk aide Ann Marie knows us by name and always welcomes everyone with a huge smile while always maintaining safety and protocol. Our nurse Mrs. Gilmartin is a bright and wonderful lady who never turns away a child for any reason and always makes them feel better no matter why they visited her. The cafeteria personel like Melissa Perez are all kind and interested in the kids health and well being. AND last but not least the teachers are wonderful! We have had great years each and every year the kids have attended Parkview. We have never had a teacher I wouldn't recommend to a friend or neighbor. I have to mention all of them or I wouldn't do them justice. So thanks Mrs. Tiano, Mrs. Sangiorgi, Mrs. Cassagne, Mrs. Mealy, Mrs. Cagno, Mrs. Iemma, Mrs. Johnston, Mrs. Armatto, Mrs. Golding, Mrs. Bogenshutz and Mrs. Tohl. Thanks for taking my children's education seriously while making school a pleasure and not such a chore for them.

I love that each of the students and parents are known by name, no one is lost. You walk into the school and the faculty really makes it feel like a close knit neighborhood.

About the tests


Beginning in the 2012-2013 school year, the New York State Department of Instruction implemented new assessments designed to be aligned with the Common Core State Standards. The new standards for proficiency in these subjects are higher than in previous years and the percent of students earning a proficient score is expected to be lower as a result of this change. See this letter from New York's Commissioner of Education for more information on these changes.

In 2012-2013 New York used the New York State Assessments to test students in grades 3 through 8 in English language arts and math, and in grades 4 and 8 in Science. The tests are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of New York. The goal is for 90% of students to meet or exceed grade-level standards on the tests.
