  • Parkland High School has low standards compares to other states. It is so weak in academics, especially in math and science.When my son transfered to Arcadia High in CA, his "A" in Parkland was not equivalent to "B" here.His current high school SAT average is 200 points above Parkland High. His current high school has 4000 students and is a public high school.
