The school has a very positive atmosphere that is conducive to learning. The staff are highly qualified and are flexible in their techniques to teaching to meet their student's individual needs. Support staff is available for student needs as well.

All my grandchildren went there or still go there. My grandson needed special assistance and they were there in force to encourage and support him, and now he's onto middle school. My youngest grandchild is second grade and loves it!

While I am happy overall with this school, I am very disappointed with the class sizes. I do not believe my child receives the attention he needs because of this. The teacher was great, but can only do so much with 20-25 K students and no full time aid.

Park Hills is an excellent school. We moved her recently from NY and what a difference. My children love the school and are doing much better in school now that we are at Park Hills

The teachers truly seem to care about their students. They are easy to communicate with and are willing to take time to help work with parents rather than against them. Mrs. Kelly and staff are friendly,fair,and have played a major role in the growth of my son. thank you park hills!

The school is nice & They have a great playground for the kids. The teachers are so-so & not very patient with the children. Too much homework for elementary school. Not good with parent/teacher communications.
