    "Academic is a joke in Parkland High. Everyone has High GPAs, but the academic standards are so low compare to CA. That's why so many outstanding kids can't make in to the best college. It's not a good place if you want to compete with the rest of the world. Also Valedictorian is not recognized in this high school."

    "I'm a former student, graduated in 2011. Parkland HS is a beautiful campus, and has most up to date tools and resources to learn. Teachers are qualified as well, but regardless of all that, if you want your children to do well and feel apart of in this school you better have money. The school parking lot looks like a new car dealer ship lot, the children that go to this school are the children of lawyers, doctors... parents that have the money to give their kids everything and this is the majority of the school. We all know how hard high school already is to "fit in" and I believe it to be distracting if one is constantly trying to "keep up" with other people they really can't compete with because that would be living outside their family's means. & don't be fooled by the 10 out of 10 rating there are many, many substances to be found at this school. I don't believe this school district prepares young adults for the real world, they just want you to get into a prestigious college. This school can give great education, but my own personal experience was lacking...the school knows how to put on a front and so do the children."

    "My child attends Parkland High School and I am very happy with my child's progress. The staff is helpful, there are many extracurricular acitvities for the kids and their Arts Department is one of the best I've ever seen. My child came from a school where there were bullying issue and has met wonderful students at Parkland- the more the kids involve themselves the more and different people they will meet and more interesting and the fullfilling high school experience they will have...Parkland provides great education, socialization and experience for their students. Our family couldn't be happier- the 10 out of 10 rating is well-deserved."

    "I am currently attending Parkland High School and so far its wonderful. The education is great and the teachers are really good. However, the students who go there are mostly stuck up and snobby. Its hard to find the right friends in this school. They are judgmental, inconsiderate, and intolerant to anyone who looks "different" or dresses a different way. I don't hangout with these crowds and I was lucky enough to find a hand full of friends that I care about. I also have a learning disability and I really like the teachers here. They help whenever you ask and give you extra time to work on test and help you study for them. I also like the fact that they give you independence because that teaches students that they will not have that extra help all their life so they need to take responsibility. They don't have to watch you all the time if they know you are responsible, and I am glad they do so."

    "As a parent of two students with disabilities, I find that this school has done grave injustices to us. Instead of acknowledging the needs of each individual student, the reputation of the school was first and foremost. Bullying not only came from peers, but from those we entrusted our loved one to. In the end, we moved out of state and away from what we thought to be "the best school district" in the area. Looks can be deceiving and lives can be torn apart. Your children's future is your priority. As the old saying goes "If it's too good to be true, it probably is" was never truer words to describe Parkland High School."
