You must be a bully yourself. You would fit right in with some of the teachers and some of the students.

No, just a parent who has been there with this school. There has been many students to change schools because of this issue. And just because you dont like what I have to say doesnt mean that I am that person who talks nasty and starts things. Maybe you should send your kids out there and see what they think. They do have some wonderful teachers but then those that are bad are really nasty to some of the kids.

Better yet, maybe your the topixFag.

Those numbers are for the ELEMENTARY school. When you look at the numbers from the high school level, PC scores aren't anywhere near as good. Which is really weird actually. No idea how they have such a great grade school and such a mediocre high school.

PC is primarily white. Arkansas is a state with high percentages of minorities. If you were to compare PC with other white schools in the state, my guess is that their rankings would be average. The top schools on every list for the state of Arkansas are primarily white schools. Comparing a white school like PC to a black school like EHS is a bit unfair.

There are definitely some PC haters but there are also EHS haters, etc. I certainly don't hate PC, I'm just pointing out some facts. PC is by far the best elementary school around, but though PC high school far outranks other schools in the area, demographics have to be taken into account.

If only white EHS students were compared to PC students, what do you think we would find? I think you would find that kids in EHS's advanced placement programs are leaps and bounds ahead of even the top 10% at PC. EHS produces the smartest kids from the area every single year. Kids coming out of AP at EHS are our town's best and brightest, receiving the most scholarship money (despite the Promise) and Ivy League offers. They also account for almost all of the area's National Merit finalists. Really, if there is a high honor academic award being given away to a student in the area, you can bet its an EHS student.

If I had kids I would definitely want them at PC until they were high school age, then I would probably want them at EHS.

And I have to say - who hasn't heard about PC's morality issues? We're talking about a school that consistently produces knocked up white girls. PC has had a bad reputation for that for years now. The girls that don't get pregnant in high school or right after are usually pregnant by their mid twenties and they're rarely married. The guys from PC contribute to this problem, of course. PC is also known for bullying and rampant racism.

I'd also like to point out that PC elementary was ranked much higher than #8 a few years ago, which means that their position is falling. No idea why this would be.

Nope I was wrong. The #8 ranking IS for PC High school. NOT their elementary.

But I was right about everything else :)

It should be noted that ALL of the top ten high schools are WHITE schools.

I'm sorry but some of you are really stupid.

PC DID NOT RANK #8 in the state. I'm sorry.

That #8 ranking is by U.S. News. U.S. News ranks schools this way, which is stated on their website. "Students are assessed via Criterion-Referenced Tests... by a literacy exam, according to the Arkansas Department of Education. Thats basically a fancy way of saying "we get paid to rank sh*t." It gets really strange when you realize that U.S. News doesn't use proper assessments for their rankings, and that PC's rankings ARE NOT EVEN AVAILABLE. Let me explain....

HERE IS THE TRUTH FOR ANYONE WHO ACTUALLY WANTS TO SEE IT:

http://www.schooldigger.com/go/AR/schoolrank....

Listed there are the state rankings for the 2012-2013 school year. INCLUDED ARE ACTAAP SCORES REGARDING MATH AND LITERACY.

Want to know what happens when you type in Parkers Chapel High School? This:

"Sorry, Parkers Chapel High School (El Dorado) was not found in the ranking list. Only schools that have current ACTAAP Geometry and ACTAAP Literacy scores are included."

If PC doesn't even provide up to date Math and Literacy scores to the general public, then HOW DOES U.S. NEWS RANK THEM?

And for the idiot know it all who says PC's Elementary school is all that... sorry, think again.

http://www.schooldigger.com/go/AR/schoolrank....

PC Elementary is ranked #90. Yes, I just said it. Number NINETY. DOWN A WHOPPING 39 RANKS SINCE THE LAST ACTAAP SCORES.

How the f*ck does that even happen?

Now, think about it. How is it possible for a high school to rank number 8 when their elementary has dropped 39 ranks? If PC students are being taught at the elementary level then go on to PC high school, how are these #90 ranking kids suddenly becoming worthy of a #8 ranking? Hint: THEY'RE NOT.

I graduated from PC two years ago and let me tell you, if PC is ranked number 8 in the state then Arkansas must have some of the most piss poor educational standards in the entire nation. I loved PC while I was there and I think it gets a bad rep for the wrong reasons, but they've been lying about rankings for as long as I can remember. Really, think about it. Universities do the same thing all the time. You can find any school in the country in a "top schools" list.

I loved PC when I was there. I still have a fondness for that little school. I loved the people there and I don't think it should get such a bad rep for supposed "morality issues". But pointing out the truth isn't hating.

Do you NOT have a problem when the kids are being bullied to the point they start telling their true friends they are going to kill themselves? So YES the morality issues do play in here.

How in the hell did Parkers Chapel's elementary school ranking drop by 39? Thats a major fail. I bet they want to keep that as quiet as possible, after all the bragging they used to do...
