Parma is a small town where everyone knows everyone and they all get along. The school is great and there are many opportunities to grow there. There aren't a lot of place to go and hang out, so if you want to shop or have fun you have to go to a town like Boise or Nampa. Other than that, it is an amazing town!

Parma is a small, but an amazing farm town in Idaho. The energy from the community is warm, inviting, and helpful. I do believe we should have more community activities to bring everyone together through good times and bad times.
Quiet, small farm town. Everyone is nice and helpful. Perfect place if you want quiet. It is very family friendly though and safe.
