    Parents involvement helps in grooming at early stage school encourages participation in extra curricular and co-curricular activities.

    Park Village is an amazing school. The teachers and staff are excellent and extremely well educated. The test scores are high due to the fact that there is so much care from the teachers. The fact that the foundation funds additional programs along with those already funded by the district makes it even more appealing. PV education and opportunity rivals that of any private school and in most cases surpasses them. We are very fortunate to have our child attending Park Village.

    Would like to express it in thoughts instead of ratings. First of all "Parents Involvement" is the most common word used around the campus and yes Parents are involved right from PTA to everything else. Let's come to a topic of education and what Parents Involvement" means. Basically as parents are we sharing the load of a teacher? OR because school rely too much on a technology that "concept of teaching in a class" is disappearing? In addition homeworks are printed papers (OK so far) and Compass Learning (which is again on computer) so basically it is parents who ended up teaching the kids for a curriculum provided by school. So if we remove the curriculum part then how different is this from a home study. Not sure is this the way we want our kids to be educated.

    Park Village IS different. It is unfair to generalize. I have had more help from the pricipal and RSP teacher here than any other school my kids have been to including out of state. We love Park Village! The prinipal and teachers are caring and helpful. Parent involvment is extremely high. It is has been a wonderful experience for us.

    School and School District Beware!!! This Principal and the RSP Teacher discriminate against children with disabilities and/or disorders. File your complaints with the CDE to get rid of these bias bureaucrats. If you are concerned about the Protected by Superintendent John Collins Poway Unified School District Principals research Highland Ranch Principal - Anita Wilson for yourself. Hum how many parent complaints does it takes to get rid of a principal for bullying and lying? Park Village Elementary is no different!!!!

    I've had two children attend this school. From the Principal on down to the teachers and specialists this school is very dedicated toward educating its children. In addition the parent participation is outstanding as well. Tucked within a subdivision it is truly a safe and wonderful environment with a lot of spirit and great teachers.

    Park Village Elementary is a school that feels like a true extended family. This school has a wonderful principal and dedicated and caring teachers and staff but also an amazingly dedicated parent body who will go out of their way to help the school in any way possible. Many of these parents manage to find the time and energy to help despite their jobs and other commitments.
