my daughter started kindergarden here and had a good time, she had a new teacher in the 1st grade who refused to help her at all. Instead of encourage her to study and do better in her class she called my 6 yrs old stupid and not fitting. In the end I had to transfer my daughter to Roosevelt School. I am sorry for all the bad experience my daughter and our family had to go through because, of the 1st grade teacher and the school pricipal at Park City Magnet. At pick up time I saw one of the light house teacher was out of control and screemed her lung out at the little kids instead of helping them I ask why she was yelling and she said because, they are not listening to her....

Both of my children have been going to PCM since 1st Grade. My oldest is now in High school and my daughter is now in 7th Grade. The school as a whole has done amazing things with the limited resources available. Due to the dedication of many to go far and beyond what could be considered the norm for public education.

Park City is an excellent school. The principal and the teachers are great in getting parents involved in activities and informing us of what is going on in the school. My child is in 5th grade and it's her 1st year at this school and she is doing great. She enjoys going to this school and participating in activities there. I would definitely recommend this school to any parent.

Park City Magnet is by far the best k-8 school in the district. The principal, Mrs. Callahan is well informed of all aspects of the school, and surprising to me, she not only knows the students, she personally reviews every report card, making personal notes on each one. She is a tough, no nonsense administrator. PCM is extremely lucky to have this principla, who is leading the school, not for herself, but for the students. As for the teachers, they are the most wonderful, supportive team I have seen. I have kids aging 9, 13, 15, and each of the teachers they have had are always available. The open classroom policy is a wonderful advantage for parents to observe how their child's teacher, and your child are during lessons.

I am absolutely thrilled with the way my children (5th & 2nd Grades) are being taught at Park City. They are both exceptionally happy and thoroughly enjoy the whole learning experience. Both have attended since kindergarten. I am constantly amazed by their progress and the love they have developed for learning. I couldn't be happier with the school as a whole. Top Notch all around. Thanks to the hard work of the teachers and the involvement of the parents.

It's a great school for any child to attend. My daughter has been at Park City for two years, Pre-K & now K, and she has done wonderfully. She is now reading books on her own and in math she is adding and subtracting two digits and she is learning multiplication. The teachers really care about the children, about there progress and their well-being. The level of parent involvement in the school is amaizing. I would definetely recommend this school to any parent.

I have a daughter in fifth grade, and in kindergarten , and I am highly satisfied with the school. My daughter was reading on a fifth grade level back in grade 2. The staff and curriculum are wonderful! I agree it is hard to get into, but well worth any wait you might incur.

MY twins went to this school a few years ago. it was great! unfortunatly the only way to get in is through a lottery which you can apply for once a year the chances of getting in are very slim the population of the school is based on ethnic balance. Also to get your kids in after kindergarden chances are slim to none seeing there is a waiting list already But if you do get your child in its one of the finest schools in the state!!!! lots of teacher and parent involvement lots of great programs just a wonderful enviorment this is a state run school it is strict and a student must keep up their grades and behavior no violence or goofing off allowed period! It is also a positive learning enviorment where kids really want to learn beacause it is so positive there!!!!!

This June my daughter will graduate with high honors. She has been excelling in school since day one. The teachers at this school give the children the skills in order to archieve the goals they have set for themselves. Her joy for writing has developed into a decision to make this her career. Her hopes to became a writer in the future is due to PCM's encouragement to write from the heart. This school has became a second family to her. The respect the children receive from the teachers, as well as the teachers giving respect back. There is a sense that you not only come here to learn but to grow. Grow into respectful children.
