    "Our son is thriving as he moves up into his fourth year at Parkside. He has become a voracious reader and seeker of knowledge, and a confident and articulate nine-year-old. His passions are supported and cultivated and he exclaims every day is "awesome" at Parkside. If we plucked him out and placed in him any other school he would be at the top of his class. He loves math and science as much as music and art because it is all nurtured at Parkside. At Parkside he has also learned to be a kind and respectful community member and citizen of the world. The directors' and teachers' love and commitment to the children and their community is evident in every way at Parkside. Our son is inspired and growing in leaps and bounds. It is truly an exceptional school and we are so grateful for our son's early education and life experience at Parkside."

    "There's not enough space here to tell you about our wonderful experiences at Parkside. We honestly believe that Parkside's approach to the Montessori method has provided "growth to the whole child" with regard to each one of our three children. The 2013/14 school year will be the 12th year at Parkside for our family. Our eldest son began as a 1st year in Lower Elem. and stayed for 6 years. He went on to O. Henry MS and just completed his freshman year at Austin High. He is in the top 10% of his class and played football, basketball and baseball for AHS this year. Our middle son just finished his 9th year at Parkside. He started Primary just before his 3rd birthday and will be at O. Henry MS next year. Our daughter also started in Primary at age 3 and is now entering her 3rd year in Lower Elem. For our family, "the proof has been in the pudding." We have seen how well our eldest son acclimated not only academically but socially into MS and into everything he does. We continue to see these same capabilities in our other 2 children. I would invite you to schedule an observation of the classes and join us for Simple Gifts every Friday morning. You'll be glad you did."

    "Parkside Community School is just that: a community. A nurturing community of learning, creativity, and respect, and it has been our family's privilege to be a part of it for seven years. We visited several other Montessori schools before choosing Parkside and found that it offered methodology and structure perfectly balanced with variety and freedom. It is neither "militant" Montessori, nor abject chaos. The children are confident, engaged, and very, very happy - almost as happy as the incredibly loving guides and staff. Joe and Claire Bruno have done an amazing job of cultivating an environment where the whole family is included in the learning process, and the lessons are just as applicable outside the gates as they are inside. We have had one or both of our children in each of the classrooms over the years, and we have never ceased to be amazed at the opportunities and challenges they have been given and, without frustration, mastered and overcome. They are growing into caring, intelligent, and responsible people, and we know that Parkside has played a huge role in that. Our final Gates of Life ceremony will be bittersweet, but we will be a part of this community forever."

    "The first time I visited Parkside, I noticed that the legs on the benches in front of the school were carefully cut out to fit over the irregular curb. That allowed the benches to be back a few inches to allow more room in the high-traffic walkway. Those benches are a metaphor for how the whole school operates. Everything is carefully and thoughtfully executed. Like the irregular curb, they are able to work with each child, meet her where she is, and build on top of that."

    "My daughter is thriving! Parkside has been an amazing fit for her gentle heart, inquisitive mind and independent spirit. Having respect and integrity at the center of its classroom creates a wonderful sense of community that permeates through the staff and parents. Onwards and upwards to Upper Elementary we go!"
