    "Very poor administration skills. Administrators have no excitement and enthusiasm. This situation also affect the teachers and as a result education and discipline are not satisfactory."

    "The new principal has turned things around. There are a lot of new teachers, too. The school is safer, more rigorous, and more interesting. I hope it keeps getting better."

    "Discipline and education is not the best. I however do not only blame it on the staff but also on the parents. Kids are using words that at such a young age they should not know. My child is going to begin to attend the 1st grade there and yes I am looking for a better school for him. But parents need to be more involved. I agree they don't challenge the childrens education enough, but that is why we as parents need to step up. I give my child extra homework and during summer vacation as well. He adds and subtracts because I purchase books at home to teach my child. But this school is horrible. But as soon as we find our home my child will no longer attend Parkside. I just wish parents would be more involved and not only blame the staff."

    "One of the worst schools in the Southeast Side of Chicago. Maybe my opinion was based from a substitute teacher's point of view, but the current principal and vice principal attitude is so non-committal, for lack of a better word. Discipline and organization are a foreign concept to the school. I believe since many of the parents treat the school as a free kid drop off point, hence the students lack of interest in learning and frustrated teachers. Honestly that did not bother me. What bothered me was that the principal and vice-principal did not offer any support to subs whatsoever. I would think they would be more supportive and hence find more qualified teachers through their substitute pool. Sad part is the kids suffer. I sinscerely hope it will change for the better."
