Open Quote I was a student at Parkside 40 years ago. It's was a terrible school then and it looks like the prevailing attitude of apathy is still alive and well, more's the pity. Close Quote

Open Quote I have had a poor experience here at Parkside Middle School. The curriculum is low quality and is boring from what I have heard. The school is poorly organized and people are too busy to help the students. I would not recommend this school. Close Quote

Open Quote Very bad school, the staff is highly unorganized and has no idea what their doing, they hate their jobs and are unhappy. Some don't even know what their job is. I've been yelled at and hung up on by the staff, they all hate eachother and its a shame that the incredible principal has to manage this sorry excuse for a staff. She is so embarresed im really sorry for her. Its hard to do anything you have to get security checks and passes and verifications im not a terrorist i just need to leave class to go to the bathroom/talk to the counselor. The teachers are OK some are good. It's boring and every day its just school schooll not very hands-on or fun. The staff takes forever it took my 5 days sraight to register and they weren't helpful.

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
