The educational opportunities at Parker Junior High School are now first rate. All students are appropriately placed in classes to meet their needs from the students requiring special needs to the high performing children. The communication with the parents via Skyward email is stellar and a parent is never waiting long for a response to a question. Also, the new website is outstanding and provides a venue for teachers to post assignments, calendars, teaching sites, etc. Further, while many schools have cut their art programs, PJH has a strong band, orchestra and art program. They also have academic competition activities, such as Science Olympiads. While in every school, especially during the difficult growing years of junior high, there are students that need behavioral attention, Parker does an excellent job of mentoring these students and guiding them in a positive direction. I thrilled iwth the experience we are having at PJH.

This school has severely declined since my first daughter attended 7 years ago.The staff are just "phoning it in" at this point. They are overwhelmed with disciplinary actions and are unable to educate those that are there for an education and not for babysitting. I expect to see further decline from this school. The few talented staff are frustrated and looking for other jobs. Need I say more?

My Grandson attended a christian school from age two through sixth grade. He is currently in seventh grade. I was convinced public schools were a complete waste of time and a child could not and would not received a quality education. He is in his first year at Parker and is excelling as usual. I'm impressed with the qulity of education he is still receiving. Park seems to strive for excellence and passes the message on to it's students. This was one of the best moves my daughter-in-law ever made. Sandra Bynum-Holmes

Parker Junior High School (PJHS) Is the best! We have school dances to meet new people and to help our verbal skills, we have team meetings to ensure that all students and staff members are happy with the learning criteria, and, we have plenty of after school activities for children to participate in. For Example, There are inter-murals, Band, Orchestra, and Poetry Club! The teachers are Fantastic. The deans are especially nice because they help to resolve school problems and they listen to what people have to say without interfering! I am In 6th grade... so, This is my first year at Parker. Parker consists of 3 grades; 6th, 7th, and 8th. Then you either move to Homewood Flossmoor (HF), or, Bloom Trail. (Unless you move away.) Everyone is excepted at Parker and no one is left behind!

My fourth child is at Parker this year and I can't say enough about the quality of her education. The teachers care and are always willing to give extra help if needed. I feel that the district truly prepares them for H-F's rigorous curriculum. Very satisfied!

We currently have our 3rd child attending PJH and it is a terrific school in a great area of the south suburbs. When discipline was not addressed during our oldest childs time there, the adminstration jumped on it and set in place corrective actions. PJH is a winner.

This is my daughter's first year and I am very pleased. The children adjust well to the rotating schedule. All teachers are accessible by email which is great. The curriculum and faculty are good. The only thing I am dissatisifed with is the behavior of some of some of the other students. But the faculty addresses any issues immediately.

Parker has excellent teachers who seem to really care about their students. There are a variety of extracurricular activities. Parents send their children to this school because they care about their children's education and they show it through their involvement. There are some disciplinary issues but teachers and other facility members appear to have their pulse on the situation which isn't an easy task. I'm not so sure about the rotation schedule this year. It is a bit confusing.

I believe that PJH is not designed for all students. The teachers are not accessible at all, and there is a weird rotating class schedule that they implemented this year. Very confusing to the average person.
