Parkview has some hard working teachers but lacks consistency and follow through campus wide. If you go into the cafeteria during the day, your ears will be ringing from all the craziness. Kids are running down the hallway, there is no real structure to this school. There should be a banner across the front door, "Anything Goes". Call the teacher, call the office- they'll tell you something completely different. No one is on the same page.

PVES has a very diverse population, which we love. However, due to the high need of low socioeconomic students, their efforts are spread thin. If you have a child that needs to see a reading specialist, forget about it. They will hardly ever be pulled even though it is the LAW. Getting services for your child can take over a reay, where at other Keller schools that long of a process is unheard of. This puts more burden on the teacher and makes the teacher prioritize her day around the low performing kids. About 6-7 years ago, this campus used to be an Exemp. campus but now it is almost under performing. Teachers are hard working but lack support to get the job done.

This is my sons first year, he is in kindergarten, however he has attended school since 1. As a parent i am vastly disappointed in all aspects of this school. There is no communication from teachers to parents, between staff members or anyone for that matter. We recieve papers of upcoming events or things to bring/buy after its already due. My son has not brought home one piece of homework, and when i got a form to document on logging reading i asked the teacher (since he doesnt read yet) do i read to him or let him try to read to me and log it and her response was "if he doesnt know how to read, then you read to him". He can never tell me what he learned and i dont see any improvements. I have started schooling himbat home as well and he can now read. Also if there is a slight (40 or below) they will have server weather dismissal. Needless to say he will not be coming back and i feel this school is lazy and doesnt care!

I had 2 boys attend PVE from 2002 until 2012, my youngest son started in the ppcd at 3 yrs old. The special ed department was great, but when we got to Kindergarten, his needs quickly went by the wayside due to scheduling, high faculty turn over, and lack of desire to spend the funds required to meet his needs. The ARD process is ridiculous, parents are just in the room for show, not to provide input. Most suggestions I brought to the ARD would be turned down. I thought this was a KISD issue, but when we got to CTI in the 5th grade, our concerns/suggestions were listened to and within months our son had an educational diagnosis of Autism, a disorder normally diagnosed between ages 6 - 10 , but not at PVE. I have had 2 special needs advocates view my sons records, both have said PVE flat out dropped the ball, for years. If you have a child with special needs, run as far away from PVE as possible. If you have no choice, hire an advocate to go to all ARDs with you. Also KISD has drawn the boundaries for PVE in a crazy jig-saw puzzle way causing the lower socioeconomic families to feed into PVE inspite of the location of there home. This enables the school to receive title 1 funding.

We really love this school. The population is very diverse and the teachers are great at communicating with parents. My daughter has life-threatening food allergies and they are very responsive to her needs and prepared for as much as they can be. The asst principle had some creative ideas to keep her safe but included in the cafeteria and the teachers are, if not always on top of the constant celebrations, open to nagging from concerned parents. I was terrified to bring my daughter for Kindergarten but now, going into second grade, I feel very safe having her there. The academics are like any other school in America - you get out what you put in. I moved into Keller ISD from Virginia before my daughter started Kindergarten - I was emailing the RN in charge of health services before I even got here - and everyone from the top down was very helpful and responsive.

My son's teacher keeps me well informed and contacts me with any concerns regarding his learning. I am very pleased with my son's school and he is very happy there as well. Although he is in 1st grade he is still close to his kindergarten teacher and all the facility there.

I have a daughter in second grade here at Parkview. She has done great all three years and has had teachers that went out of their way to keep her engaged. There is a great PTA and they just started a dad's group called Watch DOGS.

My son goes to first grade at Parkview and he loves it. He has some learning disabilities that I was not aware of. His teacher quickly provided him all the services he needed to get him up to par. Everyone there, the teachers, counslers, the nurse, are always making sure he is getting the most of his eduaction. The environment is always welcoming and the security is top notch. I could not ask for a better school.

Parkview is a great school with a very diverse student body. They have an exemplary status. It represents the society's demographics in general. What I mean is that its not one of those all white or all black or all hispanic schools. I think, kids going to Parkview will have a much better chance of being color blind - i.e. they will see people, not what their ethnicity is and they'll get a great fundamental education.

Parkview is great. I am so sad to leave it(we are moving) Great principal, great organization. They are strict, but there is a reason they maintain the exemplary status. My daughters are all the better for it.

My first time being at parkview was last year.Due to Hurricane Katrina.I had two son's attend PV.The best part I like best about Parkview was when my 5 year old advanced to reading on the second grade reading level. He still attends Parkview now.

Parkview is overall a good school with good test scores. The school can be strict though and at times I feel like to academic pressure to maintain their exemplary status oversees the nurturing needs of the children at this age.
