Parchment School District Reviews

I attended Parchment Schools all the way from Kindergarten through high school graduation in 2014. Compared to other schools in the area, I believe Parchment is the best choice. It isn’t a big school, so the class sizes are smaller so there is a real sense of community.

Absolutely fantastic community to grow up in. Teachers genuinely care for students, and you can't beat the welcoming, small school hospitality that Parchment boasts.
The Parchment School district is full of wonderful educators. The diversity starred at a minimum and now is slowly becoming more and more diverse. Funding for art programs are low but athletics have a decent amount of funding.
