This school is alright however it does not challenge it's students in the best way possible. They do have PTA meetings, Bingo nights, and other events to try to get the students and their parents involved. Their after-school activities are limited and wish they offered more.

I've enjoyed working with teachers, principals, and staff at Parklawn. This is a great school with a great diversity of students. The new principal works well with all at the school. Please give Parklawn a chance it's a great school.

We have two years' experience at Parklawn, which is just a terrific community school that serves the Parklawn, Lincolnia Heights, and Heywood Glen neighborhoods. Our child's teachers are caring and encouraging and we are impressed that he is able to receive individual attention given there are 21 other students in his class. Parklawn offers traditional and multi-age learning environments, a well-stocked library and technology in the classroom. The school's beloved principal recently retired after more than 25 years; her replacement is in his first year and seems to be well-liked. An earlier post complained that children are yelled at - we have never seen or heard of anything like that at the school.

This School needs some guidance on how you speak to children. I have consistently witnessed children being talked down to and screamed at. This is not acceptable behavior for adults. If you can avoid it DO NOT send your Children to this school. This school may have been great at one point in time but it is far from it now. What a shame.

very low standard of education, the School's entire focus is on music and dancing.Even the advanced academic services are low, it's not a good place for challenging students.Students are into a lot of bullying and use bad language and spoil your kids.
