My son has gone to Parkview for two years. The teachers he has had so far have been great. My problems with this school are with the front desk staff and the principal. Neither of the two mentioned have any respect for the parents of the children. Every time I've visited the school it's been a problem for the front desk. They seem to really hate having to do what most people like to call their "job". I always feel like I'm burdening then, whether it's because I'm picking him up when he usually rides the bus, or calling him in sick. The principal is not much better. She also displays rude behavior. The school is beautiful and in a great spot, if only the employees matched. I wish we were zoned into another school's district, but unfortunately even after moving, we are not.

Disregard the first review, I attended this school the first year it opened as a 5th grade student, and I can tell you, absolutely, this school overlooks a county highway and is next to the Chippewa County fair grounds. It is a beautiful school, however, and well maintained. The main office staff is friendly,mostly, but the faculty seems to have lost any individuality and accountability they may have previously had. Students are berated constantly for minor infractions/mistakes, and I don't see how bullying from teachers is suppose to make these children feel better about themselves and inspire ambition in anything beyond finding the fastest way out of the school.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Wisconsin used the Wisconsin Student Assessment System (WSAS), which includes the WKCE and WAA, to test students in grades 3 through 8 and 10 in math and reading, and in grades 4, 8 and 10 in language arts, science and social studies. The WSAS is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Wisconsin. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level. In private schools, only voucher program participants are tested.
