Parkland School District Reviews
PSD allows too many students to fall through the cracks. Students with learning differences, challenges, and disabilities are too often crushed. There is a school culture and attitude that focuses and thrives on all the best and leaves the rest behind. Be careful, monitor closely, document everything, and speak up!
I liked the opportunities the district has to offer however the teachers can be very hard on the students, the campus and classes are crowded which leaders to strict rules and can sometimes feel overbearing. However, there is a hand full of teachers who will always help and make school feel less like prison. Where the administration may lack in student interactions they make up for in the schools themselves, they are always clean and mostly up to date. Overall, parkland school district allows the students to be exposed to a lot of seniores good and bad.
Parkland high school offers an academically competitive environment, as well as strong athletic and artistic programs. Throughout my four years, I have primarily taken honors and AP classes that have challenged and prepared me for the future. In addition, I played three years for the varsity girls’ soccer team, joined a couple of clubs, such as key club, became involved with ceramics, and have been accepted into four national honors societies. Parkland offers every student these opportunities to find something they are passionate about and creates an environment where students can cultivate their individual talents.
