I have been horribly disappointed with this school. My son was reading at a fourth grade level and learning how to do fractions on his own prior to starting kindergarten. We communicated with the principal and his teacher that he would need to be challenged or they would be encountering behavior problems. Two years after handing his education over to the "professionals", he is in exactly the same place academically and his behavior issues are the only thing the school ever addresses. They have only recently acknowledged that he is an advanced student and *may* need to be challenged, but have yet to actually *do* anything. This minimal response only came after we took the step of having him evaluated by a team of behavioral health doctors and included the step of IQ testing solely so present to the school. Getting a response from this school for an individual student seems to be next to impossible. Kids appear to be treated like cattle. My son's "classroom" is a large open area where all four first grade classes are separated by cubicle walls with no door. It is noisy and has to be distracting for kids and staff.

Great school. Needs to have better sound proof classroom to stop all the noise from hallways going into classrooms. Disruptive children need more supervision. Needs more help in the IEP area of school to keep disruptive children under control when needed.

This year I would have to rate this school as average at best. The classes maybe smaller then the new school but the kids are not getting the help they need.

We moved to Elk River last year. The school staff made us feel welcome and asked all of our questions. The teachers are friendly and very help full. If we had any problems Parker staff was more then willing to help us.
