This school has been the worst school that I have seen while being in the military. The school does not adhear to their own bullying policy. The victim gets punished instead of the other way around. I have overhear the principal tell a student to stay home from school and let the other child cool off before returning to school. The administration will not call a parent back even after six phone calls. I have even stopped by the office only to be told that the principal is in a meeting and he would have to get back to me. The bullying does not stop with the students either. Some of the teachers even laugh at the victim. If I wasn't stuck in a lease, I would have taken my children out of the school. Needless to say, if you are not from this area, this is not the school you want to send your children to. I will not be sending my children back to this school next year.

I was a student there. I think the school have awesome teachers. They really teach the students very good. The staff is very friendly. When it came to academics I think they did a great job.

They do not let the students shower or change after P.E. even though they make them run and sweat. These are 12 year old kids and older, that is digusting and unhygienic.

I myself went to Parkland middle as well as my son and daughter. When I compare Parkland to any other middle school in the northeast, this middle school is the bell of the ball; compared to the rest of El Paso I believe it is among the best. The school buildings appearance, architecture, and indoor facilities such as the classrooms, labs, gym, and cafeteria are great for the kids and create a positive environment. The teachers and staff are friendly and do a great job. My son and daughter never had an issue with any of the teachers or staff, and enjoyed their middle school experience.

Myself and my son went to this school and I think that the school has come a long way from when I went there in the 80's..I agree with the no lockers...It prevents the kids from being late to classes, hiding drugs and things in them, as well as not being able to say 'oops it's in my locker' The assistant principal helped my child tremendously If u think that the Jr high making them have loads of different supplies is bad, wait until they get to high school....

Absolutely Wonderful! The academic programs are based on state mandated guidelines (TEKS), there are a plethora of extracurricular activities for a variety of talents, and a higher-than-average parental involvement is evident.

My daughter has been in this school for nine weeks. I was very surprised at the school not having lockers for the kids to keep their supplies in. I was also very surprised at the amount of differant supplies that were needed. It seemed that every class required a differant type of folder or type of paper. College ruled paper here, preferrated paper there, folders with clasps here, pocket folders there. And a cassette tape? I was also very disappointed in the fact that the students are required to follow the dress code that was established for them, but the teachers aren't required to adhere to the dress code established for them.

I was shocked at the amount of school supplies that is required of my daughter to bring to school. She has to carry loads of books on her back pack and the school has NO lockers for the students. This could cause a back promblem to my child and the rest of the children that have to carry this big loads of books from class to class.

This school does not have the caring of students that most schools have.They don't show caring about the students future. The principal does not get involved with the parents. My child was at this school for 2 years and never did I see the principal only the asst.principal who also had the attitude of not caring.

Parkland Middle School has been very strong at the point that I feel our children are in a very critical stage. One strength I see in this school is 'discipline'. Which is very important in a middle school. My children's teachers have portrayed a very positive and encouraging atmosphere in class. Teachers who taught my children were able to strengthen my children's weak point. Their attitudes, of most them, were very enthusiastic and contagious, always trying to make a difference. The school's weakest point is probably-parent involvement. Coming from a school which I volunteered for 8yrs and that feels parents are a key to our children's education, I was disappointed that in three yrs that I've had my children at this school, I've been called once and it was a late notice. Let us not forget how important it is for the child to know that school, teacher, etc. and parents have a very good relationship with each other. Home and school have to meet halfways-neither one of them can make it on their own-that's if our priority is 'Our Child'.
