I have no complaints at all about this school. It is one of the best-kept secrets.

I must come to this school's defense. I have heard a lot of negative comments about Middle School at Parkside the year my son was slated to become a 6th grader there. He is now in 8th Grade. I have absolutely NOTHING bad to say about this school what so ever. On the contrary actually, I have not met one educator on this staff that hasn't been anything but helpful. There has never been a time when I have had an inquiry, or a concern that my concerns were not met with the utmost expedience and attention to the matter. There will always be some trouble in ALL schools, and being in a big city, there again, will always be some things that concern us. But rather than parents gossiping among themselves, communicate with the Staff. I cannot believe that I am the only parent that actually thinks the teachers and faculty at parkside middle school are doing a great job, especially with the work load handed to them and the amount of children that they are educating. Thank you Forrest Ransdall (Principal) and the entire faculty at Parkside that have made this a positive experience. It is my sons last year at Parkside, and I will be passing on good reviews onto any other parents that may ask me my opinion.
