Park has made several recent building improvements including new play structures and a new cafeteria. Some of the other buildings, especially the auditorium, are in need of an up-date. The students come from a mix of working class and middles class families including a high percentage of recent immigrants with strong work ethics. This results in some challenges especially finding parents to help with school activities. The principal and teachers are dynamic and hard-working. Our daughter is currently in the transitional kindergarten (TK) program. The large number of students in the class makes providing one-on-one instruction a challenge. The teacher, however, has many years of experience and excels at preparing students for kindergarten using fun, conceptual learning activities.

Park is definitely an excellent school. My 2 kids have attended and loved their time there. Teachers are friendly and for the most part, great at what they do. The school nurse however, needs to be evaluated I believe. She is always disgruntled and doesn't demonstrate any care or genuine concern for the kids. I have sat in the office and observed the way she treats them as they walk in, and it was a little disturbing. The principal however, is wonderful and shows great love for the kids and her job. My children have done extremely well academically, and I am happy they came here.

I can only comment on how wonderful this school is based up until the 5th grade since we have moved out of the district. Up until then, my daughter has been attending this school from K-5th and I've seen her flourish and develop into a bright and healthy young tween. She has consistently scored above average to perfect scores on her CSTs and I attribute her success to her teachers: Ms. Chow, Mrs. Anderson, Mrs. Brock, Mrs. Lugo, Ms. Ellis (retired) and Ms. Duong. We were fortunate to have caring teachers and the principal is great and really listens to parents' concerns. There are extraciricular activities and book fairs and events held throughout the year. There are regular volunteers from the parent community and good families that attend this school that make it great, along with good leadership from the principal and excellent, caring teachers.
