As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

I'm not certain who is really writing these reviews (faculty posing as "parents"). The Principal (DR Ponds), is phenomenal, cares, very involved, knows the students, communicative. The teachers (maybe 50%) are ok, less than 20% are great. I feel like I'm doing most of the teaching for my kids. I have 2 kids that attend, 3rd in college. We've lived in 9 states where my kids had to attend schools (due to constant moving for my job). I have to deal with so many issues with the teachers (in Parsons) and their lack of communication or caring for the kids. The Vice Principal and Guidance Counselor (forget their names), are the worst- they are rude- and even nastier to the students. I live in a very closeknit neighborhood with A LOT of kids that attend this school, and every parent seems to have the same issues. I'm very involved in ensuring my children receive proper education. It's unfortunate because I'm certain this school has potential, however- if the leadership (exempt the Principal), doesn't seem to like kids- then there's not much that can be done to improve the environment. I cannot afford to move right now, and this is the only reason my children still attend.

Am glad that my daughter is in Parsons elementary school. A perfect example of a school that is ever ready to work towards rearing up the kids in a beautiful enriching way. Hats off to the principal, who is so welcoming to new thoughts and creative ideas and puts in all efforts to implement them. Am extremely confident that if the school continues the hard work it would be one of the best nationwide !!!

My son goes to this school and is in the special ed program. His teacher and aides are wonderful loving and caring. I can't say the same thing for all the teachers. When he was in regular classroom one of his teachers was horrible. She spoke negatively about him in front other parents and students. She made him feel like an outsider and ignored when he was being bullied.

my son goes to this school. Teachers are great, son learnt lot in KG. The staffs are amazing. Each and everyone of the teachers at Parsons go above and beyond the expected. The teachers plan the lessons based on the individual needs and concentrate on each and every student. I am proud to say that I am a part of this community.

I have taught at this school for a number of years. The staff is amazing. Each and everyone of the teachers at Parsons go above and beyond the call of duty. The teachers plan and execute lessons based on each individual child's needs. They don't just teach "to the middle" they teach to each different learner in the class. I am proud to say that I am a part of this community.

My daughter is a first grader at parsons. The school has brand new first grade and kindergarten rooms with bathrooms inside. The teacher is very good and keeps me informed via email and phone on the progress of my child. The bus system is excellent and all kids are taken care of. The school nurse is very caring and uptodate with the kids needs.

My son has been going to Parsons for 3 years now. He has had wonderful teachers all 3 years. The school is very aware of the parents' expectations and parent interaction is always encouraged. I particularly like the fact that from 1st grade onwards the class is subdivided into groups so that every student can learn at their own pace.

The school has a great staff of teachers who are dedicated at their job. This school was rated as the most ethnically diverse school in the nation. Overall discipline among the children is quite good.

I am very pleased with the level of committment expressed by teachers. There is ample opportunity for extracurriculars and parents are, for the most part, involved.
