Student, Parkland High School, Class of 2017,
The type of student who SHOULD attend Parkland high school should be hardworking, attentive, caring, and principled. These are just a few characteristics that should make up a student at Parkland High School. Why? Because Parkland High School isn't just a place for learning. It is a place where people can exchange ideas and get introduced to new cultures and environments. We have plenty of foreign exchange students who travel over oceans just to attend our school. The best thing about Parkland is our extra curricular activities. We currently have a wide array of sports ranging from swimming to ultimate frisbee. If sports isn't for you, we also have clubs. Parkland is also renowned for its curriculum. The IB Program, or international baccalaureate program, is a global form of education that inspires students to become more like inquirers. We become more knowledgeable, principled, open minded, balanced and reflective. We also have a higher and more in depth thinking process, we engage in communication and have seminars over topics discussed in our classes.
