Memorial Park school is a wonderful elementary school in itself. It has a great student to teacher ratio. I would rate this school low in parental involvement. And in speaking to many of the members of the parents while waiting for my child to come out of the school and at school activities, much of the advoidance is due to the personality of the principal of the school. As far as a person looking for technology for the students and school improvement, she is wonderful. On a personal level with parents and students, she is very lacking in this department. And I feel, along with many others, her personality alienates many.
