    "Parents are always willing to help. Wether it be at a game, for a show, at a concert, selling tickets, running the concession stand, volunteering, or just carrying something for someone else, any parent dedicated to the school will be there to sign up and help or attend."

    "The teachers at Park High School are very approachable and easy to talk to. Though I may have some problems with their teaching styles, they do allow students to talk to them before, during, or after school hours. They want their students to do well and often try to get to know more about the students who struggle. Out of all the teachers, the math teachers are most knowledgeable about their topics. My favorite teacher, Mrs. Shea-Latourneau, is an excellent teacher who makes math, a subject I dislike, actually interesting and fun. She teaches us different methods to approach a problem and lets us choose which ones we like to use. She was my calculus teacher and a lot of the things I have learned over my senior year are still fresh in my mind. She loves math with a passion, but she loves teaching it to students and helping them understand it just as much."

    "I'd say this school is like any other school. Park High School isn't known for anything outside their "International Baccalaureate" title. Our sports and academic teams are pretty average but apparently our robotics and theatre clubs are more successful. I did enjoy my high school experience at this school however, because of the staff and my fellow peers. A high school is nothing without the people in it and I enjoyed the presence of these people. I loved talking to my teachers and getting to know them, as well as meeting new friends and learning more about my interests. My favorite experience might have to be when I was a sophomore and I was taking mandarin Chinese 3. What makes Chinese so interesting was not because of the learning or academics, but of the events that took place in that particular class. Every year after taking Chinese, our Chinese teacher either left the school to work at another one, or went back to China. I've been taking Chinese since my 7th grade year in middle school. And the same thing kept on happening during high school. Sophomore year was different as we had two different teachers. The first one was a younger male who just graduated college. He had a terrible time controlling the class and eventually just gave up, sending out students to the office whenever he felt displeased with them. Some of my friends were kicked out simply for laughing. During the middle of the year, one of my peers sent a letter to the principal about the teacher. The teacher either quit or was fired - none of the details were given out. And he was replaced with older female who had just come China. This teacher was much more capable and had an easier time getting along with the class. She made class interesting by giving us options on what we could do for homework/lessons and tests (oral speeches, reading complex Chinese passages, presentations on Chinese activities, etc.). This class was memorable and that is why it is my favorite experience."
