Going to park hill was a good experience. There are many clubs for students to join and sports for students to meet people and broaden their career choices. Park hill was one of the top 10 districts for education and being a part of that was very rewarding for me. I love school and all the teachers that I had. They gave us opportunity for dual credit and AP credit. These classes helped us prepare for college and also gain college credit so that we could have the possibility of being ahead in college. This results in not having to pay for certain classes, which is a big bonus. Park hill also has the AVID program and they are extending it down to the elementary schools so kids can start to learn early. I started my freshman year and went all the way through senior year with the same students. I made a lot of friends and built many bridges to help me with job applications and college applications for the future. WE ARE PARK HILL!

I moved from California to Missouri in 2015, 2 months into Sophmore year. Park Hill was much different from my previous school, it was indoor, there were lockers, and it was much smaller too. Automatically I noticed the academics were much more difficult than what I was used too, but I think it was much better for me because I was coming from an area with a very high drop out rate. My 3 years at Park Hill were amazing, I had the best teachers, and made many friends. I even had the opportunity to get one on one tutoring for my more difficult classes! My only complaint was my counselor, he was not very helpful when it came to helping me choose the classes that would help me graduate on time. Thankfully I did graduate with a 3.0 GPA on time with my peers! I really did enjoy Park Hill and its a school that I would be happy to have my future children attend.
I recently graduated from Park Hill and I enjoyed every moment of my high school career here. The Park Hill staff is one of the reasons why I am going to college and I thank them so much for it! Not only are there a variety of differing resources, but there is such a diverse staff that is always available if help is needed. For example, there is always someone on call for suicide screenings. Also, Park Hill has a wide array of clubs, sports, and classes to join! One of my favorite classes introduced was human anatomy and that class and teacher got me interested in nursing (my intended degree).
