    "Parkland Senior high school is a group of about 100 well accomplished students surrounded by thousands of other students. Out of the accomplished students, Parkland this year is sending VEX team to World level, is sending 32 to PJAS states, and has sent at least 10 this year to a state music ensemble. Not to mention State Volleyball team. However, many of these students get smart on their own, without the aid of teachers. This is a perfect school if you are ready for less-guided studying. If you need the help of a teacher a lot, look elsewhere."

    "Parkland High School is an outstanding school. There is a wide range of academic classes for many different levels of students. The music and theater programs have won awards. The volleyball, football, and swimming teams have won state championships. My daughter is taking PLTW (project lead the way classes) in aerospace engineering and CIM (computer integrated manufacturing). Last years Vex robotics competition had a parkland robot at the worlds level. I would recommend the school."

    "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."
