The diverse environment of this school introduces students to all cultures which is ideal for their future careers. I also appreciate the teachers go the extra mile to reach out and make sure that students are doing well regarding their education. In addition to those factors, the Advanced Placement program is also another great access to students. These rigorous classes prepare students for college because they require about the same workload and expectations.
One thing that could be changed about this school is the disciplinary actions for students who misbehave. At times, students would treat class as if it is free time in which they could leave whenever they wanted. I would suggest that the school administrators be a little more strict on these students. They are not little kids anymore, the high school need to prepare them for adulthood by showing them adult-like consequences.

Parkrose high school is very diverse and has lots of teachers who are dedicated to have all their students pass. The amount of engagement that the teachers have on their students education is inspirational! One thing I would like to see differently is the student body pride. Most students don’t feel engaged in activities because of the lack of information that is provided to the student body.
One thing I absolutely loved about the Parkrose High School community is how diverse our school is. I really loved this factor about diversity in Parkrose because it really has made me feel more connected to my community and those in it. Another factor I love about Parkrose High School is our staff. Staff members such as our counselors have always been supportive our decisions and have always pursued us as students to reach our full potential and not simply adjust. Furthermore teachers in the Parkrose community have always provided us as students challenges that will not only help us grow academically but outside of school. One thing I would definitely change about the Parkrose community is the format staff such as the college and career center communicate with students such as myself. I definitely believe that something's should not be said through an email or remind message but in person.
