    MS 2 Parkside Prep Academy has teachers that go the extra mile for their students. I have been very impressed with their encouragement and enthusiasm towards the students learning potential.

    Just reading the reviews that are on here really dishearten me. I went to this school about 13 years ago. I remember my teachers well too bad I cannot named them as this site has a policy to not named the teachers but I will like say that I did them proud. Reading those reviews and seeing how terrible those students english is written shows how their little they pay attention in class. I know that the students that go to that school may have their hardship but I believe they have the opportunity to become something better. I graduated MS2 back in 2001 I graduated high school went on to college and made something out of myself. I'm in the process of becoming a teacher and I remember my teachers and the lessons they thought me and I will continue to make them proud. Its just a shame that the students of MS2 today don't know what they have until its gone and too late. in my heart I will this school a 5 start but honestly until things change I have to give it a below average school.

    This school is a bad school in my opinion. I went to this school for 1 year and i had to transfer. The teachers are caring some of them then there are other's that don't . This school has so much drama and violence. I think my first year there was horrible . It was cool at first but there are so many kids who are in that school that love to fight. These Kids fight to much. They always want to fight for some reason even for a little reason. I really dont like it

    I attended this school last year form 6th grade to 8th grade. Those were the worst years of my life. The students are loud and disrespectful the teachers do not respect anybody the lunch help is worse than the kids. The principle picks favorites and in a situation always chooses that child and does not care about anybody else. I advise no parent to bring their child to this school unless they want to see their child fail.
