I've had and have a daughter that attends Park. I've seen this school go from okay to YES WAY! The teachers are more caring and the CCSS have definitely come into play. The strategies used make you think more and not memorize like before. You have more vocabulary which is a plus because some students aren't exposed to it and more word problems for math. Rigorous now, but I think it will get better!
My 3 children went to Richardson park elementary. Two children attended all 5 years and my youngest until 3 rd grade. I must say the teachers are absolutely wonderful. They truly care about their students. They go out of their way to help you when in need. Dr. Mathis ( the principal) is always willing to help when in need also. He also cares greatly for his students. Anyone considering this school should know that their children will be in good hands with the teachers at this school.
