Parkwood Middle School4

I am a parent of two current students at Parkwood. I have to admit, when we first looked at Parkwood Middle School we were skeptical about sending our kids there. It's been 2+ years now and we could not be happier. The staff is not only friendly and approachable, but they have gone to great lengths to help us with any needs/requests we may have had over time. We have enjoyed caring teachers, who are willing to work with you and your child if necessary. The student body is well balanced from a diversity perspective in my view. If I had to do it over again, we would gladly send our children to Parkwood Middle School. It is a diamond in the rough. Thanks Parkwood Staff for making our experience such a good one. Our kids have benefited greatly.
We love Parkwood Middle. My daughter has great teachers who really care and she is able to take advantage of many activites. She was never an "athlete" but a teacher suggested she try a girls-only running program and now she is running cross-country and loves it. Her teachers have taken the time to find out what interest her and help her learn by tapping into her desires. Great drama progam as well. Administrators are also accessible (a rarity in schools today)
My daughter just completed all three years at Parkwood and it was a great experience. It may not be a new fancy building, but the teachers and staff care! The administration runs a tight ship, but kids now days need to be taught to respect authority. Great school.
