Park View High School Reviews
I have been attending Park View High School for three years, and my experience so far has been wonderful. Park View prioritizes academics above everything else, and that’s what I like the most about it. Everyone here is very friendly, and willing to help you accomplish any goal you set for yourself. Park View also offers many different clubs and activities, which broadens your horizons! If I could change anything about Park View, it would be the food we receive at lunch. I would also add more beneficial classes that are optional such as accounting.
Park View High School does not receive the credit that the establishment rightfully deserves. Sure, the school has a minimal budget due to Mecklenburg County’s abysmal population, but the staff still manages to engage students with their teachings and amiable personalities. The educators truly care about the students’ abilities to comprehend information, setting aside time to schedule one-on-one lectures with teens that are struggling in the class. All the students get along with another as well as the teachers who frequently collaborate to peak students’ interests with whatever information or memorable experiments they plan on going over. While Park View High School might not be as lavish as others high schools in Virginia, the institution forges relationships between students and staff that are inexpensive and irreplaceable following students’ terms here.
I was a student at PVHS from 2010-2014 and during my time there, a few of my classes had lacked the resources in order for us to learn. Some there were only class sets of books, so we had to use them in class and wait until the next day to learn more, as opposed to getting a head start for the next class or studying for quizzes and texts. It may be different now but the only thing that I have heard that had gotten worse was the food being served in the cafeteria. The only thing has been getting "out-of-hand" is the dress code. Some of the administration shows a bit of favoritism toward certain students and others are basically shamed for what they are wearing. Even some of the guys there had protested in support of the de-sexualization of teenage girls. I was not in Dual Enrollment classes, so it did not help me prepare for college whatsoever.
