Parson used to be a school with high expectations both academically and behaviorally. The new principal at the school is awful! She has created a hostile environment where neither students nor teachers feel comfortable attending. About 16 teachers are leaving the school this year. Many strong, supportive parents/families are pulling their kids out and taking them other schools. It's a shame what the new principal has done to the school. I hope her reign is short!
I am the parent of a Third grade student that has done nothing but struggle this year at Parson Emementary. She gets bullied and her grades are getting worse as the year goes on. I have tried talking to her Teacher and Principal and get no help. I was told to have my child focas on good things instead.
This is a excellent scool. Mrs. Kuiper runs a tight ship but still keeps it fun. My Grandson has enjoyed attending K and first grade.
My daughter is in 1st grade and has been attending Parson since kindrgt. She loves it and she reads better than other children her age that attend different schools. The staff is always concerned and proffessional. Special kudos tp the office secrataries who go above and beyond the call of duty. Great job and thank u to the entire staff
Because it is by far the best school in the area. The principal Mrs.Kipper is very strict and she runs the school like a very tight ship, and she never has problems.
I've had two children here. Ever since Ms Kuiper (the principal) took over, there have been many subtle changes for the good of the kids. The only downside I would agree that the lady in the front office is rarely inspired to help you.
we love parson's. my 2 children go there. the teachers are very encouraging to the students and they really care. the prinicpal is great. the only problem we have ever had is the office lady has a major attitude but im sure just due to stress from everything. parson is by far better than most las vegas schools. kindergarden learns to read before first grade.
I have a Kindergartner here and I'm not happy with her achievement even though she 'meets' expectations. She is not encouraged to try and yes she does need a lot of hand holding in order to learn. I'm not happy with the overall public school system here in Las Vegas both as a parent and former student. I am finding that it is a district wide problem and no I cannot afford private school.
My kids have gone to this school for a few years now and we all love it! The principal is really on top of things. The all-day kindergarten program is incredible. My son was reading half-way into the year! Very impressed with this school! Keep up the great work, Parson!!!
I was at Parson for 5 years and I loved it! Now that I'm in Middle School I have a great education because of Parson. I get A's and I am in a accelerated class. It's a great educational school with awesome teachers. I met new people and made friends. Had the greatest time and those were the best 5 years of my life. Go Patriots!
I have 4 children at Parson ES. The school is wonderful! Parson is a warm friendly environment where children are encouraged to learn and grow. The teachers are outstanding! Children write books, create projects and are involved in active learning. Parents are always present and the school is enriched by the collaboration between the staff and the families in the community!
