Great place to send your children. Teachers and staff are amazing to work with and go above and beyond everyday for their school. Having such a small community and everyone helping each other is what is so special about this school. I love that the younger kids get teamed up with an older kid for a buddy system. Pretty amazing things going on here!

Parkston School District is a small school that everybody knows each other. The teachers are nice, they want you to learn and respect. They genuinely look out for you. Safety and learning are the schools top priorities. Overall Parkston school is a good place to be.
I enjoy the block schedule. The teachers really care about you and push you to do your best. It is such a small school and everyone knows everyone. This can be a good and bad thing. This leaves little room to find the right friends. You are basically friends with the people you are because you have no other choice. At the same rate, it's nice to have a small community of people around you who know you inside and out.
