  • Letters of Recommendation

    Letters of recommendation may be required for colleges/universities, scholarships, military service, or workforce employment. Please click on "Download Form" below to provide background information to your counselor so a strong letter can be written on your behalf!

    Please be reminded:

    1.) Your recommender needs time to put together a good letter, so make sure you provide them with plenty of notice (one month lead time is appropriate, but two weeks is the very least). For letters needed prior to winter break or by January 15th, you must return this completed form no later than November 20th.

    2.) Clearly note the dates/deadlines that your letters are due to be submitted.

    3.) Seek out the Parkview HS staff members who know you best to request recommendations.

    4.) Waive your confidentiality rights, when asked, on the college application to ensure that colleges know that your recommender felt the freedom to comment honestly.

    5.) When completing your forms, please provide your contact information in case your recommender needs to clarify any of the responses you provided.

    ** Because recommendations are confidential, they will be sent directly to requesting institutions in officially sealed envelopes.
