School is great highly recommend. It it was amazing teachers are never mad and always helpful. When you really need it highly recommend it for everyone good student not bad student.
This school is very nice, the teachers are very sweet and know what they are doing; the school is a very nice place in general. If you're a 5th grader and one of your options for middle school is parkland, I recommend it.
This school is dry. It is very boring and has no fun events.
