18 Parent Reviews for Parkside Middle School

As a seasoned teacher that has transferred into Parkside, I can only say how impressed I am with the administration and staff from the custodian right through to the principal. Starting at the top with the principal she is a straightforward woman. You know what she expects, there are no secrets. She ...  Read more

Do not work here. A lazy and unprofessional principal who likes to be bossy being surrounded by a group of assistants and some teachers from the staff. They are a bunch of spiteful, malevolent, stab-in-the-back people who will do anything so as to be "promoted' and belong to that "selected' group of ...  Read more

This school does not provide a quality education. The schedule is so's amazing that anyone could follow it. The leadership at the school is lacking and not looking out for the students. They are only concerned with making a name for themselves. The foreign language program (of which ...  Read more

This school is less then mediocre. My child was not prepared for high school upon completion of eighth grade. The homework (whenever there was some) were handprinted. I can only recall a handful of times when text books were used.

Parkside Middle School is a school the community can be proud of. I think it is starting to get overcrowded and has a size and staff issue, in terms of adjusting to all this. With just two music teachers they have won numerous awards and competitions and this is with classes of 40 or more kids. One ...  Read more

It took two weeks to register for the school thanks to very rude, unprofessional employees. I have been hung up on ...  Read more

Dissapointing. My US Constitutional rights have been violated so many times that it hurt me right in the patriotism. It's so poorly organized that alll the rules contradict each other and nobody has a clue what their doing. The staff is mean, I've been told "Get out my face" several times they arent ...  Read more

All we heard when we moved to this area was how great the schools are....well, after 7 months, I am NOT impressed. This school (as well as the elem my 4th grader attends) is one of the most unorganized schools I have ever seen. The band program is a their spring concert, my 8th grader ...  Read more

My child is a new 6th grader who came in from Bennett. We are seeing a big impact in quality of education and so far none of it is good. 1. Math seems to be taught using 'Investigations' methods rather than standard algorithms. Many nights after work I must tutor my child in math because he cannot ...  Read more
