Are oldest daughter is a 4th grader and has continued to have a very positive and rewarding experience at Park Lawn since her first days of 5K. We've been very happy with each and every teacher she's gotten and most have been excellent. I've had nothing but positive dealings with the principal and her staff and have received prompt responses to any questions I might have. The music and art programs have also been a positive experience for our oldest. We now have our second child there in 5K and have been very pleased with her growth during her first semester of 5K. The teacher's and staff have both contributed to her growth as a student. I would recommend Park Lawn to any family in town without any reservations. I understand that no school will please everyone, but I can say that our experience there continues to be very very positive.

Some excellent teachers. Losing previous principle a big loss. Any concerns to her fall on deaf and combative ears. Some not good teachers. Sadly, this year's had her favorites and would belittle others. I watched my child self concept, excitement for school, and number of friends plummet. Teacher refused offers for help from parents. Child attempt to participate in the limited number of activities ignored and dismissed and denied. Mean bullying groups of children, not seen and ignored on minimally supervised recess. If this is your district, just find out who is a good teachers are and who is not.

As an educator, I find it revolting that this school is supposedly a 'school of excellence'. While there are pockets of brilliance in teaching, there is far too much 'sit and get' learning. Also, departmentalizing 4th through 6th grade absolutely flies in the face of research on the best methods. Just because it is easier for the teacher to prep only one subject, it is definitely not in the best interests of students to switch from teacher to teacher for different subjects. Unfortunately, non -educators think the school is great, just because the school looks like the educational model many parents grew up with and because of the Blue Ribbon of Excellence.

Park Lawn is a very poor school. I removed my children from this school because of the low standards and atmosphere, and lack of interest on the part od upper elementary teachers. There are some very good teachers in the primary program, but they are forced to work in a very unprofessional atmosphere where many of the staff seem to just not to care.

My son attends Parklawn. He began in 5K and is currently in 2nd grade. It has been a wonderful, challenging and growing experience. I can't say enough good things about the entire school and all the staff I have ever had the pleasure of working with. The teachers are sensitive, attentive and patient. The guidance counselor is wonderful. I do not participate with the PTA, but I do think they do an outstanding job to enhance the overall experience in the elementary school years for parents and children alike. We will soon be leaving (tearfully)and I will miss the small town comfort of the community and school here in Oconomowoc.

I absolutely love this school. The team of teachers here are very caring loving and adept at what they do. They challenge children of all levels and are very good with inclusion of all children. My two daughters have been very successful here. They feel accepted loved and challenged. It is amazing to watch them grow and learn. Being a teacher, I have seen a school behind the scenes and was a little nervous about sending them off to a school I know so little about, but it has been wonderful. The level of parent involvement is astounding. The staff welcomes all of this involvement. I am sad to say that we will be moving and this school will be a hard act to follow.

I have one child currently enrolled at Park Lawn. I can't say enough good words about our principal, she is the best! I am an active member of PTA and feel the commitment of those involved is excellent, great group to work with. Would like to see more teacher involvement with PTA. They do well with what money is alloted them. My son has special needs and am extremely pleased with his progress and attention to his needs.
