My youngest just finished her final year at Park View. My oldest daughter received an excellent start here and still talks about her 3rd grade teacher and how she helped her learn to love reading. She is in AG reading and made the A/B Honor Role all of this past school year. My youngest had some struggles in 1st grade with reading and the teachers recognized it early and got her the help she needed. All of the teachers as well as the principal have been very involved with the process of helping her. Last year she attended a summer reading camp and will attend one this summer as well. Both of these camps have been offered at no cost to us. Additionally, the school has upgraded their security. You must come straight into the office, sign in and enter your driver's license and get a visitor badge with your picture on it. The staff will then open the door for you to enter the main part of the school. Also, when my oldest daughter had a problem with a bully in 3rd grade the teacher and principal and assistant principal took immediate steps to address the situation.

Teachers for the most part are good. They really care about students. The front office and leadership team needs to work together as a team and communicate to the team

As with all Mooresville Graded Schools in the District, "No Child Left Behind" only applies to those who are "easy" to teach. A student with challenging behaviors gets to spend a great deal of time learning nothing at home. EC children/parents constantly have rights violated and many don't even realize that they have lost a right. The district consistently puts the needs of the majority before the needs of the minority. My friend with a typical child sold her house and moved because she wasn't happy with her daughters education. I have fought the school district ever since my EC son entered school to ensure his rights; however, I still have to take out loans and pay a small fortune to learning centers such as Sylvan to close the gaps created by a school who refuses to educate my child. He has even been permitted to take naps in the 2nd grade! I know from experience the bordering district, Iredell-Statesville Schools is also Terrible and has been in litigation multiple times because of violation of rights for EC children. If you live in this area, be prepared to pay for private school or get on the list for a charter!

Everyone raves about this school district, but after experiencing it for the past 5 months I have to wonder how bad surrounding districts are if this is the "best"! They practice "No Child Left Behind" to the fullest extent, but if your child is advanced or shows talent, don't plan on coming here for any type of advanced classes or challenging curriculum for your child. Every week I am shocked by something that occurs at this school, from the use of physical punishment (walking laps, loss of chair and being forced to stand) to the fact that there is virtually NO physical security at this school. At any time you can walk in the front door, turn down the hall to avoid the office, and walk around the entire school without being challenged...try it...I have done so multiple times! The ONLY reason that I give this school ANY credit is the fact that the teachers are great people and really care about the children! If it were not for my children loving their teachers I would have already pulled them out. Test scores are nice, access to laptops is nice...but the safety and happiness of the children is much more important! Visit this school before enrolling your children!

The school is great but they need to replace the principal...Mr. Catone. He does not know what he is doing. Teachers are great. Assistant Prinicipal is great and should be the head principal.

Park View Elementary is a fabulous school! Very dedicated administration, teachers and volunteers! i am amazed at the work that everyone puts into making this the school one of the best in the area! "Every Child Every Day" is the Mooresville Graded School District motto. Park View Elementary excels where this is concerned...they really are about ALL of the children!

I will have my third child entering Parkview in the fall and I am, and have always been, very impressed with all the staff and students at this school. I see so many cooperative exchanges with so many different kids with different needs and expectations. The pricipal, teachers, ta's, office staff, and students all seem to share the idea of working for collective success. The technology applications that they are using are really impressive and the kids love them. The Mooresville School System really does seem to know what it's doing and how to do it well.

Although some parents may be turned off at first to learn that Park View is a Title 1 school, please do not let that determine your decision. Before moving to Mooresville we attended a school in an upper-middle class neighborhood and while the parent involvement was higher in that school, the education at Parkview is so much better. I think because there is a large percentage (40%) of economically disadvantaged students, the teachers and staff are very proactive and dedicated to providing the best possible education using researched based curriculum. They do not wait for students to fail. They look for problems and work to fix them before they become serious. The principle, Dr. Hill, is awesome. I registered my kids during the summer and on our way into school on the first day Dr. Hill actually said hello to my children and used their names.

I think Park View is a great place to work and a great school for children. We work as a team! We encourage our staff and our children daily. We support one another and want each of us to succeed in our mission to reach each child everyday every minute. We work together in grade level meeting and share ideas. We realize we all have gifts and by sharing we learn from one another. We have a big heart for our children!

My son attended Park View for elementary several years ago, and my daughter will be in 1st grade there this year. I will say that both of my children have had equally rewarding experiences at Park View thus far. It is a great, family oriented school!

My Daughter who is going into second this year had a great experience at Park View last year in her 1st grade class with Miss Moshman & Mrs.Parkman. I am looking forward to having 2 kids in the school this year. Ms. Crystal Hill was the most understanding and hands on with me and my daughter when it came to anything we need to have attended too. 2007-2008 was our first year at park view & I would recommend it to anyone moving to this area.

I have 3 children enrolled in Park View and have been very pleased and impressed with the care, structure,discipline and education they have recieved! 2 of my children were developmentally delayed entering kindergarten and after 1 year are of average to above average in their state tests. They have both graduated out of the exceptional childrens programing and are excelling in the first grade! This is due to the dedication of the teachers and staff at Park View. Thank you!
