We moved across town and were previously attending West Woods Elementary. I was worried because of the over all lower test scores than our previous school, but have been very impressed. My daughter struggled with reading at West Woods, yet her teacher at Parr worked miracles with her. She now reads well above grade level. The teachers love what they do there. Other note worthy attributes: preschool, all day free Kindergarten, free breakfast, ethnic diversity, small community, personable faculty, well behaved children, and well kept grounds. I have grown to appreciate Parr, immensely.
Wow. The previous review (from a former student) is a prime example of the quality of education at this underperforming school. Their short post has no fewer than eleven(!) grammatical mistakes, and their main reason for liking the school is because people at the school are "nice to each other". What about high test scores or challenging academic programs? This school has neither.
this is a great school because, everybodys nice to each other, if the student needs it they can have special help, its not too over crowded, their very involved with the students, the people there are very cool, yet they know when its time to really work.
