29 Parent Reviews for Park Hill School

This is a great school with a wonderful community. Lots of parent involvement leads to a great school and Park Hill has this. My student is in 2nd grade and he enjoys his teacher. She is in tune to his strengths and weaknesses. In his weaker areas she has provided helpful advice and work for us to ...  Read more

I agree about this school being very average. It's location in this particular neighborhood can't be beat. The hometown feel is very nice. There are some really good teachers here- each grade has one (sometimes two) stand out teachers and if you're smart enough and lucky enough, request your child ...  Read more

This school has really been turned around in the past couple of years by the principal, Tonda Potts. She has improved the teachers and overall feeling at the school. The parent involvement has grown enormously and improving every day.

I think this school is average. Considering the neighborhood, the amount of volunteers, education level of the parents and their incomes, it should be exceptional. Our daughter went there through 3rd grade. The teachers are alright but I agree that the leadership is not. We dealt with some bullying ...  Read more

I've had 2 children that have gone through Park Hill. The teachers overall were very good, a few teachers were exceptional. Concerning my last child that had attended Park Hill, I kept thinking that we should change schools but I kept holding out for things to get better. I felt like the boys were ...  Read more

Have to agree with recent posts. Too many concerns about the rigor here. Administration does not do enough to differentiate for higher performing kids. Due to "no child left behind," the higher performing kids get left behind. And don't bother trying to express your concern to the principal here. ...  Read more

The principal is riding on the coattails of a fairly high-performing student body. I know 2 parents (both DPS teachers) that had concerns with cirriculum and lack of rigor in the classroom. Both had lengthy conversations with school leadership and unfortunately left the conversation feeling more frustrated ...  Read more

We've had a wonderful experience at this school in the 3 1/2 years that my son has been a student here. The teachers are first rate across grades, and I attribute some of their excellence to high morale associated with the strong principal here. Dr. Potts is knowledgeable and decisive. My son has some ...  Read more

I also have two kids at this school. As long as you don't question anything, you won't have any problems. But if your child is struggling for whatever reason, or you have questions about school policies, good luck. My own experience with the principal was dismal; I went to her with what started out as ...  Read more

I'm a parent of 2 children - both have gone through Park Hill Elementary from Kindergarten. One is in middle school and the other is (thank goodness) in 5th grade. The main problem here is the principal. She needs to go. She has NO IDEA what it means to provide students with a well-rounded education. ...  Read more
