Parsippany-Troy Hills Township Schools Reviews

This school district is good with the curriculum and other activities. However, some sports like tennis, golf are barely publicized. The teachers are friendly and approachable. The counseling department is also good. There are some problems with administration though. A lot of students engage in unacceptable behaviors on school property (vaping and drugs) and the school should take stronger actions against these students. As a part of Big Brothers and Big Sisters and Littleton Buddies, I was able to see the elementary schools (I did not attend elementary school in US). The classrooms are colorful, which is important, as it makes kids feel friendly. But kids do not start learning complex skills until second grade. I believe the learning process should start little by little from kindergarten so kids are prepared well for the future. They should not just have arts and crafts but also some studying so that they get used to it as they grow up.

I like the friendships I have made over the years, some since 2nd grade and others since Freshman year of High School. I have enjoyed playing sports and being a member of the Viking community!
The Parsippany School district does an excellent job in teaching students the material they need to purse their future goals. Most of the students go on to college where they perform in the top of their classes because of their education in Parsippany. The school system also provides many opportunities in extra-curricular activities, which students use to develop skills in community service, fitness, and the arts.
