    "I dont know why parents leave a bad review. My son is in first grade and ge comes home happy. The principal always have called me back whenevdd I had a question or needed jnformation. My son never starves and nk lunch is served before 11am. This I can vouch for. Also a little advice to parents. School lunch is served as a meat vegetable fruit and a starch. Kids are growing and their metabilism is alot faster so they will burn food off faster. Bht JC Parks does provide snacks for all kids in every age. I love JC Parks itbeats PG County Schools and definitely DC Public Schools. Charles County and St Mary's County scjools are the top two counties that jave exceeded the education for the best of all their stidents teachers and staff. So perhaps if tou get involved and not jjat semd your kids to school you can learn as well that JC Parka isnt just a school, its a place of eduucation, happiness, growth and love from all."

    "I was so disappointed. I moved to this area for the school. Unfortunately almost all of the schools in the area are overcrowded. It's unorganized, and the principle doesn't believe in returning phone call. My daughter was in K and I loved her teachers. But the school itself is a disappointment. Everyday my daughter comes home starving bc they feed her lunch before 11 when she doesn't get to school until 9. So we're making a move, no need trying to transfer to another school in the district bc it's not much better."

    "Everyone at this school is helpful and willing to work hard for each student. It has a great community feel and we are so much happier here than we were in VA!"

    "JC Parks leaves much to be desired. The principal runs a very disorganized school. We have had nightmares ranging from them not having enrolled our children (after we went to enroll them in person) to sheer madness surrounding every school function. I've found even the school calendar is not updated. If you have any experience with organized schools and systems outside of Charles County, you will not find this school at all well run. My biggest problem is also the lack of cultural representation. 90% of the teachers (in a diverse county no less) are white women. There is 1 male teacher in the entire school, and we are still waiting to see Asian, Hispanic, etc. teachers. If there are diverse students and teachers in Charles, why not JC Parks? I have to wonder what all these other reviewers are used to. Our experience has been horrible. I've tried being a partner with the school (volunteering, etc.) but it is clear...unless you are from "old" Charles County, they would rather you stay out of their way. It really is unfortunate we were re-zoned. I miss Diggs Elementary and the staff there, and so do my children!"

    "I have 3 children at JC Parks and a 4th that has moved on to middle school. We all have loved this school and it's staff. All of the teachers we have had an opportunity to interact with and the entire staff have been wonderful. I have 2 children with an IEP and one child who has had after hours tutoring. The teachers at JC Parks really care about the kids education. This is a great school!"
