    "My low rating is purely because of the principal. Parrish lacks an effective and positive relationship between the principal, staff and parents. It is also in a state of flux w/ many new teachers. The new teachers that I know have great interpersonal skills w/the children and, I believe, are effective teachers. Unfortunately, all teachers at Parrish are restricted by low resources, low funding and lack of general support in the classroom. Having said that, both of my son's receive(d) 'extra' work from their teachers when they exceeded the average classmates abilities (w/ the exception of one teacher who could care less if a student was bored). Bullying is an issue here but somewhat controlled. Unfortunately, it only gets worse at Thomas."

    "This school has great resources, excellent RTI & special ed services, cultural diversity, and a rare gem -- the Two Way Immersion Program for bilingual education."

    "My son went through Parrish School and now my daughter is here. Class sizes are nice and small, which allows the teachers to care about each child. It is wonderful school! Each child is treated as an individual and the staff works to help all kids succeed. My kids have very high reading skills and the teachers keep them challenged and happy with their individual goals. My daughter loves the PE and art teachers too! The Bi-lingual program is excellent: 1/2 the day is taught in Spanish and 1/2 in English! It's a great school!"

    "The teachers are good-to-excellent and caring, but they are inhibited by No Child Left Behind. Thus, just the basics here -- not a nurturing, creative atmosphere."

    "While there are many wonderful teachers here, especially in the PreK and Kindergarten classrooms, the administration is overly zealous about control at best, and downright uncaring at worst. They spend a lot of effort keeping parents and families out of the school and 'out of the loop' in this school district. Attendance centers are not 'family friendly'. The preK seems almost like a separate school here, and that's too bad, because they seem to be some of the most wonderful teachers here. They give kids a really good start. Unfortunately all creative play and joy in the classroom seems to die after kindergarten and the teachers must start 'teaching to the tests.' Personally I believe a good school is about more than test scores--it's also about creativity. This school fails at both, however. Class size is way too large in this district, considering the difficulties and special needs of many children."
