I have been going to this school since kindergarten and am currently in eighth grade, and trust me when I say that things have taken a turn for the worst. Starting last year, things have changed completely! The new staff, including the principal, have tried to mold our school when our former principal had had it right already! Students are now reckless and break many rules like no food, dress code, and no cell phones. I was refused for advanced math as well when I nearly passed the Algebra One test (I got over 60%) and got a 99 on my 7th grade math AIMS. In my opinion, I believe that our assistant principal, Mrs. Wright, should be our principal, as she has an excellent vision of what a great school should be. Whenever there are behavioral issues, she is he one who deals with it.

I think the first grade teachers are all crazy, maybe some exceptions. Both of my children are very smart and did great in kindergarden, however they transition these kids from having a fun learning environment to way to serious 1rd grade with zero group settings and they give way too much homework and the children are doing homework dawn tell dusk, it is crazy!! let them be kids.. have fun a little and learn at the same time

The teachers at Parkridge work diligently with their students on a daily basis. They love all their students! They want all students to be successful and reach their highest potential while holding them accountable. Teachers need parents' support and attention to their children's academics. Teachers have their hands tied when parents do not support the teacher when they are trying to hold the child accountable, and the parents do not agree with the teacher or choose to hold their own child accountable. It's crucial for parents and teachers to work collaboratively for the child's sake. The teachers are the best I've ever worked with and I'm fortunate to have my own children here as well.

Attended community meeting with reference to rezoning areas for Parkridge due to overcrowding. Was so disappointed when many of the Parkridge parents had no regard for other Parkridge students who live a bit further away and suggested they get rezoned, like we don't matter. This section has been zoned for Parkridge a very long time. The entitlement attitude was shocking, even though we wound up not being rezoned, would rather not stay at Parkridge with the sense that some areas are substandard. We are transferring to Peoria Traditional School (a PUSD school) where we are welcome.

I was looking into this school because it is an excelling school, it is close to my home, and I would like my child to go to a school closer (we drive an hour each way to his current school.) but the front office staff is absolutely horrible!! They turned me away saying I was not in the district and that they only took their own children (meaning kids in the district) I thought it was completely rude and uncalled for! Then I called the district office just to find out I am in the district!!! The women in the front office could have been a lot more helpful, or even polite! Needless to say my child will remain at his other school. It may be far but ALL of the staff are polite, and respectful.. and those are the people I want around my children!!

My daughter has been attending Parkridge for 3 years, and I have been extremely impressed with the level of commitment from the teachers and staff. Communication with parents is just incredible. The principal and vice principal are awesome. The kids love the principal and he is a part of everything! It is great to see. My only complaint has been regarding the front office staff. They have never been attentive when parents come in, and are sometimes even rude. It is a shame because it makes this otherwise excellent school look bad to those who don't know the rest of the staff. As for the rest of you, nothing but kudos! We love Parkridge!

My children started Parkridge in November of last year. I have a 1st grader and 2nd grader. They both have excelled in their grade level. The principal is remarkable. He really and truly cares for the students and teachers. All the teachers care for each student. The teachers make sure that every, I mean every student is successful. Lots of Parent involvement. Anyone that says other wise just is not around the school enough to know what is going on. Every teacher is happy and excited to go to work. I love Parkridge.

Parkridge has very high expectations for their students. Everyone goes the extra mile to help every child meet their goals and be the best they can be. We are very happy to have our child attend Parkridge. The staff puts children first and it shows. We have been a part of the Parkridge family for seven years and we have NEVER been dissappointed!

Parkridge has not lived up to its rep. If you want your child to be average or mainstream this is the place for them.
