Parkville is nice the teachers seem to care a lot more than I thought they would and I have no issues with other students it might be some drama here and there in the school but it doesn't effect the name of the school or the students. The teachers give time for our homework and that's great they are very understanding in some cases. The counselors are nice and make you feel very welcomed when you first meet them as well.

Parkville puts a lot of focus on computer science, math and art. What do they not put much effort in? Music. Within a year, 4 of the band ensembles have been removed, there is only one orchestra class of almost 40 people, and the chorus program has also removed half of its classes. Don''t recommend going there if you like performin arts.
