Parkview High School is a school that displays a positive attitude throughout the student body. It contains very diverse interactions and a friendly society. I experienced a diverse student body, enjoyed football games and dance shows where a lot support is provided and I enjoyed all of my teachers; who presented me with educational leadership and has made an effort to make sure I understand the material. Attending Parkview High School changed my mindset about learning, this school has increased my desire to learn and shown me to better myself in all of my assignments and not come approach my school work with laziness. I have only been at Parkview for a year and I have enjoyed! If I could do it all over again I would began my ninth grade year at Parkview High School and stay this until the end!

Most Parkview students don't seem to realize how fortunate we are to spend our last few mandatory school years here. Although the student-teacher dynamic is not as positive as it could be, and although standardized testing remains a major part of the curriculum, the school has one of the most diverse student populations in the state. Additionally, it offers resources that many other high schools lack, such as a counseling department for people who are struggling, and easy access to information through several computer labs, including the one in the Collaborative Learning Center.

I loved every one of my teachers were amazing! They all helped me when I needed it, and they all seemed to really care about my future and my grades and me. They all could accept when they made mistakes and laugh it off, and they all had pretty perfect teaching styles for me personally. Their grading was good too and if you didn't understand the grade you got and you asked them, they were happy to help.
