My experience with Parkville was great. I came into the school with friends and gained more friends. I like how the school is very diverse and has a lot of clubs you can join. Even though it is not the best I believe administration and staff are trying their best to make Parkville better. Some changes there can be consequences . It is not fair that students who do not do anything get penalized for certain things such as the bathroom for example. Teachers are another issue. Some teachers can not teach well which effects the students learning abilities. Personally, I did not have that experience but from other students I have heard many complaints. Teachers could also change their attitudes because it is not fair to us students that there is negativity in the way which can also effect students learning. Overall Parkville is an amazing school there can just be some minor changes that will help the school become better.

I thought this school was pretty good! Students were helpful, teachers were humorous. It’s fun to learn here. Everyday is an interesting day.
Parkville High School is a place of incredible diversity, and, along with that, unity. All students, no matter their race, gender, background, and sexual orientation, are treated equally. There are many programs, like ESOL and Magnet, making it a unique school. Parkville offers disability services, such as extended time on assignments, sign language interpreters, and personal assistants. Besides the diversity, it also offers a very safe and friendly social environment, where teachers and councelors are always ready to assist students, both collectively and individually. It also organises many interesting activities and clubs, prompting students to come together. There are classes at all levels, from standard to Advanced Placement, designed to prepare students for college. There are even classes for children with special conditions, such as autism, as well as SAT preparation classes.
