    Overall Experience: The school campus is very large, yet easily navigable. The teachers are not only knowledgeable in their subject areas, but are also genuinely passionate about teaching, providing a rich learning experience for students. The faculty and staff members, even the janitors, are all very friendly. The student body is very diverse in gender, race, political views, and religion, allowing students to be exposed to new ideas. School spirit is very prominent and provides a uniting force that brings teachers and students together, despite their differences. Students are highly encouraged to participate in extracurricular activities and get involved in the community.

    Overall Experience: I love Parkview because of the great school spirit! The student body celebrates the achievements of others, no matter who they are. My favorite experience was participating in the Student Council for 2 years.

    Overall Experience: Most teachers at Parkview care and do a pretty good job of teaching. However there are a handful known for their laziness and another handful known for ridiculous strictness. I wish there were more flexibility in the curriculum and less time spent on standardized testing, however I understand those decisions are made at a higher level. The administration could spend less time micromanaging girls' shorts and more time focused on finding the things that are good and helping them flourish.
