    "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!"

    "My children and I love Parks! This is the first school that they've attended in the area that I feel comfortable when I drop them off in the morning. Mrs. Blacktree's leadership is excellent and she maintains high standards for the school. The third and fourth grade teachers are excellent. If your child needs help (accelerated or special attention) they make sure they get it. My child was behind in math after attending local private schools but the school worked with her and am pleased to say she scored above average on the math section of the MSA. I know that is because of the attention of the teachers. My children received plenty of academic challenges. If there was a discipline problem, the teacher was quick to correct it. We had a great school year and looking forward to the next one."
