    Park Middle School is a great school but some of the kids there like to harass and bother other kids. The school administration hands are so tied there's really not much they can do to stop these pests. So if your child is being harassed or bothered the school will do their best to stop the situation from continuing but chances are the pests wouldn't stop so be prepared for that.

    Park is an excellent school with a very nurturing staff.Thier constant communication with me constantly is unmatched ! My son graduated this year and I will miss them dearly. The curriculum and extra curricular activities are superior. The principals are zero tolerance when it comes to the safety and well being of their students I appreciate that.

    I believe that park had many qualities and many extracurricular activities and many students are having fun and learning at the same time which is very good because a student should learn hard and have fun too. They have many activities for those who love any of the sports that they are comfortable with. They know right from wrong most of the time and their are many flyers that defiantly get parents involved and it shows that the school is showing that we can get involved with our students and know what our child or children are doing and how well they are doing and expressing their feelings in pieces and some that are very written well and it looks as though they are experienced and have done this for a long time when they have only been doing it for maybe 3 weeks which shows how well our teachers teach.

    Park Middle School has a wonderful faculty staff and administration. The children seem happy going to school. Parent involvement is welcomed and encouraged. School building and grounds are clean and have had several improvments in the last few years. They have an informative updated website.

    Park got a bad rep due to inapproriate behave by a couple of students. The teachers are so into their kids and they should be commended.
