I would rate my experience at this school as an average experience. The administrative stuff and the teachers are really nice and helpful. The security is screaming at the students to move. One gets used to it.. The school offers all kinds of clubs, nobody has to feel left out. The level of education is truly not the best, many kids are on their phones during class or cheat on tests, there's almost no homework for non IB students. That has to change. There were some fights, especially at the end of the school year, because kids got bored. In overall Terry Parker High School is an okay school, which can still improve.
Terry Parker has an International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme. It is small and friendly, teachers are helpful and caring. Our daughter had opportunity to attend the largest IB school in tge county but decided to go here. We are happy she did! And she loves the school!
Great teachers and staff.. One of my kids just graduated and another just started 9th grade and they both love it..
I had a difficult time rating between 1-3 stars because there are several factors that are rather excellent at this school and some not, the latter favoring my vote. Which is why it came out to a 2 star rating. I've been attending Parker for 2 years now, going on 3 (making me a Junior) and the quality of my teachers has fluctuated within these past two years. I've had some teachers that made learning the easiest and most entertaining concept but I also had a teacher this year that made my learning experience in Algebra 2 simply an atrocity. Pros: Good art programs, SOME great teachers, good (for the most part) social environment, much of the staff cares greatly about their students. Cons: The education is sub-par compared to other schools, several teachers seem as if they shouldn't be there (I've had substitutes give better instruction than some of my actual teachers), there's a lot of bullying around campus which makes for a potentially unhealthy social environment. Apologies for this being so lengthy but I wanted to try and get my point across as well as possible. If you're reading, enjoy your day/afternoon/evening
