  • Wow! My son was a first year student at Parkside Elementary in the 3rd grade. It was the best year ever! He'd been to a private school and a charter school and we were unhappy with either the administration, staff or structure. At Parkside there are strong, capable teachers, a great supportive atmosphere, nurturing and professional staff and good parental support. My son learned well and enjoyed it, not wanting to leave school at the end of the day. His teacher was off the chain: organized, communicative to parents, clear in his instruction to the children, creative in his projects, nurturing to the children, yet well able to manage his classroom. I couldn't have asked for a better teacher, school or experience for both my son and our family. Congratulations Dr. Luck and all Parkside teachers and staff for a wonderful 2009/2010 school year.
