I wouldn't send my child there. The new principal does not show leadership. Comes off as not caring and just mean. The vice principal, however, is great.

I would not recommend this school as a parent. Most teachers do not seem to care if your child passes or fails there. Our child struggles getting help when it is needed. We have tried getting our child help we have to the school many times. Last year we got them to change our child's schedule and that helped cause one teacher actually did help. But then a student started a fire in a trash can by the class room so then the teacher was not allowed to help students at lunch or before school any more. That was hard cause child needed that help not many teachers there are willing to give extra help that most kids need. The kid that started the fire was caught on camera and still the was not allowed to help kids on the teachers own time. We need more teachers that care about the students they teach! What has happened to schools these days. I remember schools being more helpful when it was needed. And if you failed you got held back not continued on to fail again cause the teachers didn't do there job. Just really disappointed in schools today or maybe just this school district

My Grandson has just started at Parsons and is very impressed with the school and staff. This is such a pleasure to hear his comment and how he likes school! Thanks to all of you for helping youth eager to attend and challenge their minds and making it fun also!

I work at Parsons. I Think Parsons is an excellent school. My daughter went there for three years. She was a cheerleader and was in the music program. She was on the Principals Honor Roll her 8th grade year. The staff is the best around. Teachers are always willing to help you. Friendly staff and great kids. Wonderful atmosphere..

I have been going to Parsons for all three years and I love it! I am in the Honors Program. Mr. Silva is a great teacher. He is really hard, but I know that his tests and reading will pay off in high school. I am also in the vocal music department. Last year, the band and us beat many high schools in Anaheim and won the highest award! This weekend, Special Concepts won first prize in out division at Folsom Jazz Festival. Obviously, Parsons is the perfect school for kids who will be in the Honors Program or our excellant music dept. The teachers, staff, and all of my friends are really great! Go Tigers!
