Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year at Parkside High School. We are very excited to meet the Class of 2020, and to welcome back all returning Parkside RAMs. We know that these four years spent with us will be some of the most important years of your life. The administrators, teachers, and staff are committed to offering you a world class education in a safe and fun learning environment.
Parkside has many exciting and challenging academic courses including Advanced Placement, Dual Enrollment, and Career and Technology Education. We are proud to report that Parkside High School received a bronze medal in the 2016 U.S. News & World Report Best High Schools Rankings and was a school recognized nationally. As noted in this report, Parkside’s graduation rate for the 4-year cohort is an excellent 93.21%. As a Parkside RAM, we are confident you will find all the academic success you seek while making great memories to last a lifetime.
Parkside offers many support services as well as opportunities outside the regular school day. Tutoring and enrichment opportunities are available in most subjects through our after school programs. We encourage you to become involved in extracurricular programs such as our many clubs, activities, and competitive athletic teams. It is our goal at Parkside to prepare ALL of our students to be College Ready, Career Ready, and Life Ready.
In order to make the most of these and other opportunities available at Parkside, you will need to follow the Parkside Path of Respect, Responsibility, and Achievement. Demonstrating these characteristics, as well as maturity and self-discipline, will make this the most exciting and enriching time of your life. Again, we look forward to working with you to achieve success this school year.
