D. Russell Parks Junior High School Reviews
If you think Parks is a great school for your kids then you are right-and wrong. Parks has many academic supplements and mediocre test results. However, there are over 1,000 students enrolled making it one of the highest enrollment rates in the district. This makes it hard for the teachers to remember you any better than just a number on a piece of paper. Also, the majority of the students there are apethetic and arrogant. Middle school is a crucial time in a child's upbringing. Heed my words for they may decide which path you will go down.
