    "Parks Junior High School is a wonderful school with strong, inspiring, and caring teachers. It offers many elective choices including, but not limited to, art, music, band, orchestra, computers, physical conditioning, forensics, and Spanish. Students can explore different interests and also learn to grow by balancing their classes and adapting to different teachers. It is a wonderful segue to the high school."

    "With the exception of a couple of teachers, the most teachers and staff members are rude and can't teacher. They also don't care about their students. A student got bullied and the vice principal tried to pass the problem on the victim. The victim was protecting theirself and it was called fighting back. When the victim was only holding down the bully. The bully got away scot-free. The victim has to get treatments for the rest of their life."

    "There are many rumors that this is a great school based on the test scores. However, I've come to learn that you can't judge a school by just the high test scores. I'm currently a student from Parks and I have to call out the office staff of Parks Jr. High. I've honestly never seen ruder people in my life. I came from another district and because of that, had to take the math placement test inside the office. However, the office staff had no consideration whatsoever and were loud and obnoxious. As a result, I failed that placement test and was placed at a lower level than I originally am. Thankfully, there was a retake opportunity and I was able to get into the honors algebra, but that event just showed me how inconsiderate people can be."

    "I'm graduating from Parks Jr. High this year and I must say that it is a very tightly knit family. I consider the academics to be easy but I have had friends who transferred from Nicholas to Parks (and back) who thought that it was WAY too hard. The teachers try to communicate with their students and are considerate, but still enforce their rules. Parks offers a lot of fun electives (Home Economics, Art, Choir, Orchestra, etc). Parks is a great school to help a student prepare for the toughness of high school and definitely meets whatever standards that are given out. Some of the homework given out by teachers aren't that hard; it's just that some of the students don't pay attention to the teacher(s) and then complain to their parents that their teacher doesn't teach them when everyone else in their class understands the material. All in all, Parks is a recognized school and has a great teaching staff and wonderful community that is helpful as well as friendly."
