Parkview Magnet High School Reviews

Parkview Magnet High School has an astounding Drama and Arts department. However, it is not the dream school that I expected it to be. Parkview offers areas of concentration including, band, visual arts, dance, science, and drama. When selected to attend the school, it does not require students to audition for any magnet area except for drama. Meaning that other students are misplaced in an area of concentration. This issue is very problematic because it then forces students to spend their entire high school career in a magnet area that they are not passionate about. I speak from personal experience. Despite this negative factor, Parkview students have easy access to incredible clubs ranging from BETA club and National Honor Society to a Gay-straight alliance club to support the LGBTQ communtiy at my school. Parkview has an outstanding academic program and in the previous year the graduating seniors earned over six-million dollars in scholarships.

I was fortunate enough to enroll in Parkview for their awesome science program. It is a structure science program that prepares you for college. At the end of your senior year if you are a science student, you have to participate in the senior science fair. I was able to be very involved with my teachers and studies. However, a student who enroll for the science program must be focused and can not be a procrastinator. Teachers are very helpful!
Over the past 4 years at Parkview, I have learned that it really is a school that is aimed towards preparing students for college. The classes are rigorous, no matter what subject or duration of the class. Compared to many of the other schools in my district, Parkview provides many academic opportunities that other schools do not. There are rarely, if any school disruptions caused by students. The only complaint that I have ever had of my school is that the food is usually the same everyday of the school year and usually does not taste great. Other than that, Parkview has provided me with an excellent education that I feel will definitely have me prepared once I start college.
