Markham Park Elementary School Ratings & Reviews

January 18, 2012 Submitted by a parent
I would not recommend this school at all. My daughter spent K-2 grade at Markham Park. She did well and had great teachers K-1. Her 2nd grade year was more challenging. She struggled with tests and reading/comprehension. When I showed concern about this, as her grades were slipping, the teacher told me not to worry. She explained that because we were planning on moving out of the school district she would pass my daughter along to the next grade and there was no reason to hold her back. While I really wanted my daughter to be able to go to the next grade; I didn't want her to be passed along simply because we were relocating and she wouldn't be attending the same school. To me, that just meant that my daughter would still struggle in higher grade. This is no way to address learning issues or struggles in class. Passing children to the next grade despite the student's proving unreadiness shows lack of care! The principal was no help in the situation. They only promised that they would do all they could to help my daughter throughout the next coming months before school ended. My daughter passed the 2nd grade, but was it because she improved or because we were relocating? So sad...

Markham Park is a good school. It has really improved in the last 3 years. Test scores have gone up every year and a 'gifted' program has been installed. There is still work to do, but overall this is one of the better schools in the district.
