We have two children at Parish, and we could not be more happy with their learning experience. The faculty and staff are top-notch ... it starts at the top and Dave Monaco is an amazing leader. He is looking at the Future of Learning and the Future of Work and is ensuring our children are gaining a balance of skills that will help them in the digital economy. We can from HPISD, and I we love Parish so much, we moved out to Highland Park to reduce the commute.

An amazing place to learn, feel sense of community and grow as a person. After spending 11 years at Parish and a freshman in college now, I feel so prepared and grateful for everything I experienced at Parish. It truly is an amazing school to send your children to, they will grow in Wisdom, Honor and Service.

We moved our son to Parish last year from HPISD - we were looking for a more robust academic environment with interactive teaching and an emphasis on hands-on learning. We wanted our son to be inspired to learn and to become a critical thinker -- at HPISD he was going through the motions and honestly wasn't held very accountable for his work. He has thrived at Parish - the faculty is impressive and the diversity of the student body is refreshing. He is a more confident, mature person today than he was a year ago and I believe Parish had a lot to do with this positive change.
