Diverse as the community it represents, Parkside serves the Grant Park, Summerhill, Boulevard Heights, Ormewood Park and Cabbagetown neighborhoods. We nurture the whole child with a comprehensive core curriculum that includes Spanish and the Arts. Our multifaceted approach is joyful and rigorous. We have reduced class sizes, and provide varied support services including Gifted and Talented, Special Education, and ESOL. The school has on staff an IB (International Baccalaureate) Specialist that will support Parkside in its journey toward becoming an IB candidate school.Through partnerships and grants, Parkside is able to provide “extra” learning experiences such as an edible garden and a unique fitness program, which includes roller-skating and state-of-the-art fitness equipment. We also offer robust afterschool enrichment programming including ballet, drama, chess and karate. Additionally, Parkside enjoys a strong and diverse PTA and a dedication to ensuring that every student succeeds....Visit us to witness why we have strong Panda Pride!
