  • My son went through Parrish School and now my daughter is here. It is wonderful school! Each child is treated as an individual and the staff works to help all kids succeed. My kids have very high reading skills and the teachers keep them challenged and happy with their individual goals. My daughter loves the PE and art teachers too! The Bi-lingual program is excellent: 1/2 the day is taught in Spanish and 1/2 in English! It's a great school!
