Parsons Elementary is a great school. My son is in second grade and he loves his teacher. He loves reading and always has something new to ttell me that he has learned about at school. Compared to the other schools around here Parsons does an amazing job of teching and keeping parents involved in their childs education! My son only brings home a few sheets of homework a week and things to study such as vocab and spelling words, when compared to all the other sheets of work he brings home that he did at school it is obvious that there is plenty of work done at school! A teachers job is to teach a room full of children, not to be the parent, a parent is also responsible for educating their children and more parents should be involved with their childs education instead of expecting a teacher to do it all. Parsons Elementary School is a great school with great teachers! I am happy to have one son enrolled there and my other son will be enrolled next year! Many thanks to everyone who works in the school district for a job well done!

This school rocks. My first grader grandson can read so much already. He likes his teacher and that is half of learning. He loves to read and write along with his 3 year old sister who will be there pretty soon.


Posted October 14, 2008

There are more than 20 students per class room and the teachers seem overwhelmed. This school also has no early intervention for students who are struggling in math or reading.
