The teachers at Parkville work with me and respond to my emails when I ask questions. This is very important to me. My daughter loves the school.

I just finished going to that school and i can seriously say that it was one of the best 3 years of my life, sure we had one or two bullies in each grade but what school does not? And yes it is true a kid died in my grade while going to this school but you have to understand that it had nothing to do with Parkville high. It really is as safe as can be. So if you are thinking of sending your child there then dont give it a second thought! You will not regret it!<3

Incdents involving ongoing bullying in this school go unnoticed, and when brought to lite the school policy is to punish both sides (the one reporting and the one causing). I understand (fights) are a two way street, but when something is a clear case of bullying to punish the person who reports to the schools staff the problem is punished in the same manner. Shows either that they don't want to get involved or do not want the extra work to figure things out. I am reserving judgement on this school but right now they are lacking in a very important field of children's development.

I am the parent who wrote about having 2 students here with slacking grades. After meeting with all of my 6th grader's teachers in one meeting-they actually worked it out amongst themselves in order to accommodate me. We worked out a plan to help my child make the adjustment a little easier and monitor his weekly progress. Things have improved alot and I am thankful to the teachers and the help they've given us.

I am the parent of 2 Parkville students, grades 6th and 8th. This year, due to no fault of the teachers, both of my children's grades have slacked off considerably during the 2nd qtr. My issue though with the school is that after I was aware of the problem, I have contacted teachers to try and get information. Some were great with keeping me up to date, while others just didn't seem to care either way. It's hard for a parent, as the person on the outside looking in, to try to figure out what is going on. We rely on the teachers as our connection because we all know how hard it is to get details and sometimes the truth out of a middle-schooler. I hope that after meeting with the teachers today, much of this will be resolved.

As a current student of Parkville Middle, I believe the school is wonderful! The teachers really make sure you understand everything by creating unique lessons that students really want to participate in. The GT program is also great because the teachers can challenge you in ways that make students want to achieve all they can. The magnet program is magnificent! The four programs are fun and show students different types of jobs they could have in the future. All classes are hands on and it was the class I looked forward to the days that I had it. I especially loved the Visual And Graphic Arts Magnet (VGA) because the teacher was nice to us and showed us different techniques to create the best art. As a whole the school has normal middle school issues, (bullies, fights, etc.) but I think Parkville Middle is a good middle school to attend.

Parkville is a wonderful school. We have been afforded a great opportunity with the magnet program. My son was accepted into another bcps magnet program for high school, and we owe a lot of his success to the dedication of parkville middle's excellent teaching staff. The administration is outstanding, especially the principal and guidance counselors. In my opinion, you get out of your education what you put into it. If your child is willing to work hard and cooperate with the teachers, he or she will get an excellent education at parkville middle. The music department outdoes itself every concert. After school activities are definitely there if you want to take advantage of them. My son has already completed his 75 service learning hours (after 7th grade). There are fun family activities periodically. We'll be sad to leave this great school! thank you to everyone there.

As a former student, I had a great experience with the magnet program. Even outside of the magnet program I had great teachers, and I had awesome after-school activities.

I have sent 4 children to Parkville Middle for their magnet program, and have been very pleased. Although, the appearance needs help, the actual learning is exceptional. My 4 kids went onto even better high schools, because of their magnet experience at Parkville Middle. The parent involvement is exceptional.

The school is really great. I am a student of the magnete program. I really dont care about what other people have to say unless they have gone to the school and actually experienced what it is like. I only wish after school activities had bus to go hom instead of parents coming to pick you up. I also wish that tote bags were allowed to be caried in the school even though their reason is resonable. Overall the school is great.

I feel that parkville middle school is not at all what it's cracked up to be. I feel that the teachers are uptight and snobby and they do not give each student equal opportunties. My child got banquet taken away when he was sent to the office for the first time, and one child never got it taken away even after he was suspended twice. I feel that Parkville is an embarrassment to baltimore county public schools.

This school was quite poor in the over all quality. Each classroom is jammed packed with 30 students.So I would say, not to attempt to get into this school as it is quite pathetic.

I was very excited for my son to accepted into this magnet school but once there I was not very impressed. I think the staff is very snotty rather then being down to earth, I have never received anything in reference to joining the PTA,I dont even know if they have extra curricular activities because I never hear of anything. I think this school could work on a lot of improvement to equal up to the hype about this magnet school. Carrie Keys

For all the hype for this magnet school, I thought the curriculum would be better, but it's not and that was quite a disappointment. Wish I had sent my child to the local Middle River Middle School. Parkville should really work on the physical attributes as well as curriculum and extra-curricular activities.

The new bathrooms are a lot better then the old ones, as so the lockers. The magnet program is great and I really enjoy beng at Parkville. The after school activities are ok, but not really that exciting.

I like the madnet program. The teachers are awsome. The bathrooms need improvment and maybe some new lockers and thats all. I like the fact that we can go outside after lunch. That's cool. Also the food is so much better than any Elem. school food.

I am an alumni from this school, and I think the only good thing about it is the magnet program. the facilities, such as the bathrooms and the lockers, were horrible. I enjoyed my time in the magnet program, but I think the school could improve a lot if given the chance.
