    This school was the worst my child had attended. We had requested to have him tested in September and it took the administration almost all year to get off the butts and finally get the testing done. By May a month before school was out we finally got the results of his testing. If you get a chance to teak your kids to another school do it. These teachers administrators don't care about your child.

    I am proud to say I have been teaching at Park for 27 years and love it. My twin daughters were students at Park all through their elementary years from K - 5th grade. They both were straight 'A' students. They are now in High School and continue to be honor students. I feel their success is due to the dedicated and caring teachers at Park that build a strong foundation. Thank you Park Faculty and Staff

    I feel the whole school community strive to make this school a safe and fun environment for the children. The school's librarian Mrs. Brown really goes out of the way to include some type of gardening activity for the students in each grade. The beautiful gardens that the kids grow just make the school so much more special. I love Park Elementary.

    The new principal (Ms. del Toro) and the new vice-principal (Ms. Vannosdale) are a great team. They are geniunely caring and very involved. Most of the teachers are good too.
