    I myself went to Parkland middle as well as my daughter. When I compare Parkland to any other high schools I believe it is among the best. The school buildings appearance architecture and indoor facilities such as the classrooms labs gyms and cafeteria are excellent. The teachers and staff are friendly and do a great job. My daughter never had an issue with any of the teachers or staff. The teachers and staff did an excellent job working with my daughter preparing her for college. The schools' academic and athletic programs are wonderful as well. I believe this high school has been scored unfairly I work in law enforcment and know first hand that there are far worse high schools with drug problems every high school has a drug problem.

    My 2 children went to this school quite some time ago. I recently adopted my grandson and he now attends there. Great and beautiful school. The staff there is people friendly and always willing to help in any way they can. A feeling of being. Calm and secure there. The teachers are just fabulous and takes the time to help the students if help is needed.

    Teachers and staff are great! The kind that you would like your child to have. On the other hand the school is in a bad area and has many young trouble makers that attend mostly young gang members and drug runners. Other than that the school has great althletic programs.

    my year experience was great. it was an experience i will never forget. a lot of teachers bonded with the students. the best part was that the teachers never let us give up no matter how much trouble we would give them. i graduated a year ago in 2007 and i still keep in touch with my teachers and a few high school students and keep telling them to never give up on their dream and if they ever fall to get back up again.

    As a student of a total of four high schools i found this one to be the only one actually able to challenged me enough to work hard. At the end of the senior year you must present something called a senior project. this is the only school that has those in El Paso

    This school was absolutely amazing The teachers are very involved with the kids and will talk with you after class if they see you're having trouble. The students are very open and welcoming. I had a wonderful time at parkland. And they have great programs like A.V.I.D. which help prepare you for college.

    This is my first year of being involved with Parkland High School. My initial perception of this school is a little too much emphasis is put on the sports and extracurricular activies and not enough emphasis on education. This may be a wrong impression but it is the first I got. I've also noticed some teachers seem to be thoroughly interested in the education of the children while others are simply there to draw a check. I am hoping that next year will prove these first impressions wrong. It will be my second year involved with the school and it will also be the new principal's second year at the school. Discipline seems to be lacking at PHS as well. Not as bad as the other schools in the area but it still has much room for improvement. I didn't see many parents involved in their kids education either.

    Classes are to overloaded including the special education classes allowing less one on one time with each student. classes are not equally balanced student wise.
