This is the the first year of both my children here. One is 3 and in pre-k, the other is in 1st. My son started 1st not being able to read. He never attended kindergarten and I was unsuccessful in my attempts. Within 6 weeks, he was reading small books and within 2 months, he was writing me notes. He has really taken off and loves his teacher Mrs. McCauley. He was placed into the gifted class because of his talent in Art. He was later placed into the after school Art program for 5th-8th graders. He is doing excellent in school. My daughter in pre-k, she will probably be reading before kindergarten. They have taught her all her letters and sounds. And can count to 25 already. Security is always around and monitors the children even during dismissal of after school. I really feel the staff take an interest in my kids well being. I love this school. I rated the principal a 3 as I have not met her and cannot say.

This is my 1st encounter w/ this school & being that the school year has only just started I really don't have much to go on. But I will say that the principal has been very helpful & courteous. She seems to be very involved & enthusiastic about the children's education & general well being.

I am a teacher at Parker. It is a good school. The parents are out of control, which means the children are out of control. The teachers control what they can, but who is there to back them up? Remember, it takes a village.

The teachers at Parker that I have dealt with seem to be caring teachers, but the children are out of control. I think there needs to be more discipline at the school. The actions of the children in the school and on the play ground scares me. I will be afraid for my youngest child's safety once my oldest child is no longer there.
