Parkland Pre-Engineering Middle School
United at the Park!
Welcome to the 2017-2018 School Year!
If you're new to Parkland Middle here's some past, present, and future things about our campus...
Formerly named Parkland Junior High School, the campus opened in August 1969 with seventh and eighth graders. It was formally dedicated on November 10, 1969, during the campus's first Open House Night. The school originally had only sixteen teachers and consisted of the main office, a cafeteria, and only one hallway. Currently, we have over ninety teachers and our campus consists of the main office, library, music wing, with over 60 classrooms, two gyms, a new cafeteria, two theater stages, and we now have three grade levels: 6th, 7th, and 8th. This brings our campus population to approximately 1200 students.
Our students have many activities to choose from at Parkland Middle School. Join a club like the Science Club, T-STEM Club, Rachel's All-Stars, Student Council, NJHS, Art club, or Anime/SciFi Club.
We offer sports such as cross country, volleyball, football, basketball, tennis, soccer, track, golf, swimming, wrestling, baseball, softball, and cheerleading.
Parkland Middle is also a STEM school. Led by our very own Regional Teacher of the Year Raquel Kuker, our award-winning STEM team has won various awards from robotics to animation.
We pride ourselves on our students' academic achievements in Math, Science, Language Arts, and Social Studies, but we are also proud of the electives we have to offer. We offer dance, Spanish, art and advanced art, music, PE, and Technology applications.
The 2017-2018 school year, Parkland Middle opens the first new 21st-century middle school for YISD.
