    "We were displaced in February of 2011 during the Arab Spring. As a Marine Corps family, we were stationed in Bahrain, but were evacuated unexpectedly due to the troubles. We ended up in Durango to be near family. This school was walking distance and a delight from start to finish. My children finished the school year there. They helped my children acclimate during an extremely stressful time, and the entire staff and student body embraced our family immediately. The school was well rounded, diverse, and the teachers were outstanding. My children flourished there after being limited with a less desirable school in Bahrain. Rich in science curriculum, literacy, and inventive, smart teachers. They really let the kids be hands on and I wish I wouldn't have had to pull them out of such a great school.It was like a breath of fresh air and exactly what a displaced military family needed. Thank you Park Elementary. Our time with you was short but wonderful."

    "There are nine elementary schools in the 20,000 population town give or take a few which includes outside of town this is the best elementary school according the local citizens/parents and they do not hesitate to say so. I will give a better rating after my child starts this fall."

    "My child is in Park pre-school and it is fantastic. Excellent teachers and a well equipped classroom. The learning center concept has been a strong environment for an above average child. The principal is engaged. The library, music, and AV resources are excellent. We placed our son in this school from the Las Vegas school system which is a train wreck. As much gripping that goes on about 9-R people should look around and see what a great little neighborhood school this is."

    "We love Park! The staff is incredible and the community involvement is great. The music teacher and gym teacher are the best in town. We love the extra events, like Cinco De Mayo as well. We are proud to be a part of the Park community."

    "As the parent of two students at park I have been very happy with all aspects. The teachers are caring and strive to develop the self esteem of the students, My daughters teacher went well beyond to make sure that my child was challenged in every subject. On moving to Durango many peoples said to avoid this school. Me and my children have had great experiences and I wouldnt move from this district!"
