I would like to see more school spirit which would maybe deter some of the kids from other negative activities. In Valerie's junior year one of her classmates jumped her and she was suspended for fighting back. When Valerie came home that day after her altercation, all she said to me as tears streamed down her face was “Mom I just want to go to College and make something of myself”. Valerie immediately took ownership and had never gotten into a fight before and regretted that this happened. She is extremely passionate about her school work and getting good grades and she has a 3.9 GPA. We were able to sit down with the administration who had nothing but positive things to say and she was allowed to return to school. Valerie has had to work hard for everything she has in life and does not take anything for granted. She works 2 jobs to help pay for her travel soccer dues. She just recently was offered a spot on the VCU soccer team which she has been working for 14 yrs for!

Park View High School is a school about community. We are the only Title 1 School in our Loudoun County. This means a large majority of students have free and reduced lunch, come from low income families, or other financial challenges. Even though we all had our difficulties, this school taught us about resilience against those challenges. PVHS has clubs to create families so when we are struggling we have a place to go. The princple makes a great deal on turning to postivity when there seems to be a lack of it. Every student there faced hardships which create a strong bond between students. The school is also very diverse. PVHS has people of all backgrounds, religions, sexualites. Everyone is accepted here. When I went to Park View, I felt like I could escape the homophobia at my home. I belonged to my drama club, choir, etc. It's beautiful being a Park View Patriot.
My experience in park view high school has been a great one. They are very accommodating and welcoming people. The staffs always tried their best to see that everything based on academic career of all students paved through.
Park View High School is an amazing school full of fantastic, inspiring role models dedicated to the education of their students. This school offers an environment that breeds success not only academically , but socially especially.
