    "The school is ok, but we moved here from out of state and came from a 10 RATED school. I am very lucky to have the best teachers at this school. Mrs Fenton 4th grade and mrs Said 1st grade for my daughters. They always communicate very well with me and sending information home on time. The down fall of this school is the zero amount of organization. Also watching other teachers with no patience at all for students. I chaperoned a field trip and by the way there is no background check ! you just sign a paper and ok good to go. That is a very bad idea , anyone could have a violent history and come into help.Anyways during my time here I watched kids get yelled at,pulled,poked at while a teacher was talking to them, and no direction what so ever coming from the sub we had that day or any other teacher around. This school definitely doesn't have the best behaved children either nor the greatest parents either. I personally think its this whole area. So to wrap it up , this school is c rated and there is way better schools out there ."

    "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!"
