Parkwood Elementary Ratings & Reviews

May 01, 2016 Submitted by a community member
Not nearly as impressed with this school as I thought I would be. There have only been a few teachers in the past few years (between two children) that have left any type of lasting impression. Compared to other elementary schools in our county (and the desire to send your children to Parkwood) it's been a pretty big let down. They do offer science nights and literacy nights. The school seems to have pretty good turn outs at these events, but sometimes that's just not enough. This year has been one of the better years, so hopefully things continue to turn themselves around.

This school has been dropping rapidly in the last few years with the multiple changes in principals during my time here. It is unfortunate that Parkwood has such poor leadership and that the atmosphere fostered here is such that lack luster teachers will multiply under the favoritism exhibited by the principal. My kids were fortunate enough to have several teachers who were outstanding and much loved among all the children but alas, the principal did not like a few of them (excellent teachers who had been nominated for teacher of year by parents!) and ran those teachers out. I was also a sad witness to the ostracizing that some of the teachers would exhibit towards one specific teacher such as at assemblies not speaking to her or acknowledging her at all during the speeches that mentioned every other teacher, placing her and her class at the very back of the auditorium , leaving them all out of the pictures and power point....shame, shame on these supposed adults! All these goes on with the tacit approval of the principal who benignly looks on. Is this the atmosphere a child is supposed to learn and flourish in? What happened to a bully free zone? Go elsewhere 4 happier kids!

This school is one of the best we have ever been involved with. We are military, have 4 children and we have been to many different duty stations. Due to my job I have had a lot of experience with every elementary school in this district as well. I am not sure why this school is rated a "5" on the rating because we give this school and neighborhood 5 stars across the board. Our 3 children that have been there have had a tremendous experience. The teachers have been fabulous and encourage growth in areas that the kids struggle, while at the same time enhancing their strengths. There have been many extra educational activities as well. They have an accelerated program for kids that are advanced, but they encourage all students to go beyond their current status. My only complaint about this school is that we have to leave for a new duty station. Bottom line: If I had to do it over, I would have moved to this neighborhood again. It has been tremendous and I am sad that we are leaving. Semper Gumby. Hopefully we will find a school as good as this one at our new location.

I had thought this school was one of the better in the Jacksonville area and chose my residence based on this. However, I am finding this is not the case, unless your child is the perfect student. My student, while extremely intelligent is a bit hyper and the solution is to leave him behind even though his grades are continuously 95 and better. His teacher is excellent and trying so hard to work with me, but the bottom line seems to be making up for last years EOG test scores by eliminating students that might bring down the scores... I have tried repeatedly to volunteer with the PTO but that has gotten me nowhere. I am not the only parent to have felt this, and will encourage others to speak their mind vs trudging through. Had I known the truth, things might be different. So now my child suffers because while he is more than smart enough he cant "sit still long enough for a test"

Great teachers, but awful principal is bullying them into uninspired/drone teaching styles/methods or alternatively causing them to change schools and/or retire. Shocking that Principal Pfeffer is being left in place for a third year to single-handedly criple what was one the finest elementary school in Onslow. Despite the incredible veteran teachers at Parkwod who Principal Pfeffer has not been able to drive away or strangle with a short leash, our family is entertaining a move to another school district or private school to get away from the worst Principal in Onslow. By the way, our student is an academic high achiever and has no disciplinary issues.
