My experience at Park Center overall was really good. Most of the people I met there and were friends with are all nice and welcoming. I like the diversity of the school. I felt that I fit in because there were many Asians like me and it was nice to see that.
For the 4 years that I have been at Park Center High School is has been amazing. The reasoning for why I have said that is because wherever you are in that school there will be help whether it is help for a class or help with a medical problem there will always be somebody there to help and support you.
I know that most people give Park Center a bad name, however this school is one of the best. With a very diverse student body everyone can find a group of friends and feels welcome in this school. The teachers are nice and welcoming as well. Overall, this school gave me a lot of good experiences and I made a lot of friends in all the sports, clubs, and extra curricular involvement I was in.
It was an okay school. Teachers could be better. The cafeteria food is terrible and I personally didn't feel like the school aided me specifically in any way. I was just one of the many students who attended classes and left for the day.
Park Center is a widely diverse school with the majority being Asian and African American ethnicities. While this may seem daunting to others that are used to the white majority, I see it as an experience. We had dance clubs and Asian new years to celebrate the diversity in our school.
My experience with Park Center had been really great! The school is widely diverse and includes many language and native language classes as well. The class ratio is well set. There is a variety of classes and clubs. There are many lunch options to choose from, salads, vegan options, hot and cold lunch, and a constant lunch every day.
Park Center is a very diverse school with caring teachers and dedicated students. So far in my years of attending the school, I have no complaints. The school takes measures to ensure the success of both the teachers and the students. They have amazing programs, like the CRC dedicated to preparing and making sure that students don't struggle with applying or going to college. Because of the recent pandemic, the school has taken safety measures to protect everyone. For example, they require everyone to wear masks, implemented social distance rules in the hallways, and reduced the attendance of students in the school by half. It's a great school, with a lot of activities. One thing I would like an improvement on is the food. Sometimes, the choices for food are repetitive, and it gets boring.
Park Center overall is a decent school but lacks the support of first-generation, low-income, POC students in many aspects in terms of finding resources.
I'm a current student here. It's a huge school and the first layer is a literal maze. You might want to go to the front office and ask for a layout; the second and third floors are pretty simple though. The reason why I gave it a 3/5 is because students can get away with everything, I could skip class and walk out the door without the teacher noticing. I do like it because the bathrooms don't smell and it's clean I guess.
My experience at Park Center Senior High is a good experience because of how much diversity our school has and a lot of support from students and teachers.
During my time at Park Center I have seen many highs and lows. This year I am going into my senior year and I have noticed the amazing diversity and the really caring and supportive teachers. However, I have noticed that there is a ton of violence among students, which includes fights all the time. Overall, my experience has been pretty average for the typical student there, but you will definitely make memories that will last you a lifetime.
Overall, I feel that Park Center is a very good school with excellent teachers that are slightly dragged down by the small lack of college readiness and students who come to the school only to hang out with their friends. Being in this school for 3 and soon to be 4 years, I can say without a doubt that the teachers here are great at teaching and caring for their students. Though some of the lessons taught are a bit too easy, they're satisfactory enough to prepare students for adulthood. Another good positive about this school is that its extremely diverse, with majority of the students here coming from origins other than white/American.
It was a good experience but the diversity with the teachers needs to increase. Also there are a good amount of teachers with racial bias and that should change.
I liked how diverse the school is and there were a lot of clubs for people to part take in. People are friendly there and you meet people shares the same interest as you. I believe that when you find the right friend group, everything will be fun in high school. The food over there were alright, they weren't the best nor the worst, but it could be better. The teachers there are helpful and they want students to thrive. They do a lot of reinforcing to keep students on track which is very good. We have a college center where we have college reps, scholarships information, and career panels to help students decide what they want to do with their life. Overall, there is a lot of good stuff that helps student with their education.

Park Center is the best school. I feel like I belong. it's so diverse and everybody fits in. I planned on sending my children there in the future if it stays the same. The teachers are helpful, there're great resources for the students to use. it's just amazing.
What I really like about Park Center are the staff and teachers because they help make the school become a better and safer place. The teachers that I've had always push me to my limit and they encourage me to follow my dreams. I really like that it is also an IB school that helped me challenge myself in ways I never could. This school has taught me to be a better student and have my work harder. The school has helped with the work ethic you will need in college. I really think that people should give this school a chance because we've had a bad reputation but I believe that if you look not just at the students but the whole school it's self it's a great school. Yes, the school isn't perfect but neither is any other school. I really don't think I would've wanted to go to a different high school. I feel like Park Center was the right place for me.
