We have been involved in Parkview since 1997 when our oldest started in first grade.. We have had issue in the past some were our kids some were other kids.. We have always been able to speak to staff with any worries we have been though three principles each with their own way of doing things.. I have always been respected at this school from everyone whom works there.

The principal does not respond to safety concerns either on the playground or in the classroom. Multiple parents from my child's classroom have tried discussing this with her to no effect. The academic approach was very cookie-cutter and made no allowance for students above grade level though perhaps this was due to the teacher being forced to spend more than 50% of her time addressing behavioral and discipline issues that should have been corrected by parents.
The teachers care about the kids.
Parkview was a great school but the school is behind compared to other schools towards Seattle. Allot of changes have happend over the 4 years my child attended there but if you are looking for a small and fun shcool Parkview is the place.
Excellent teacher staff very involved PTA a friendly environment. a great 'neighborhood' school
The school itself is very charming. However have not found it easy to communicate with the principal and educators. They seem more like a joined force and not partners with the parents.
I think the most disturbing thing about this school beside the lunch program which will make you cringe is the lack of supervision on the playground. Their ability to ignore problems and sweep things under the rug is amazing.
The teachers and support staff are incredible. PTA has been amazing over the years. Parents are very involved which is key. A close knit school where pride is evident everywhere.
