    We absolutely love this school. The front office staff seems to remember me and who my kids are every time I enter. The school is very well kept and up to date.

    Park is a small community school K-8. My kids have been attending the school since it first opened 4 years ago. There is such a strong sense of community within the school. The teachers are very invested into the academic and emotional needs of the students.

    It's a beautiful new school....The teachers are very nice and care about the students. I would love to see the money better spent though. Rather than buying smart boards which are a luxury not a necessity....Let's fill the library with books or buy art supplies so the teachers don't have to...Otherwise...Fabulous school!!
