We have had a terrible experience and can't wait to find another school that we can switch our daughter to.

We moved our boys to this school after a very bad experience in a highly recommend and rated school also in Atlanta. I was very worried how the boys would find the move after starting this school year and after 3 weeks moving them to Parkside. Well I was very silly to worry as all the staff and the ...  Read more
