Upcoming Events
Parkside Middle School - A Cambridge International School
Important Concert Announcement

Attention all band, drumline and 8th grade orchestra students who attended the Busch Gardens festival!  Because all of the sports teams games were rescheduled, it is necessary to reschedule the band and drumline concert to June 6th at 7:00 PM.  Please accept our apology for the change, but we have a number of students who are both music students and on the sports teams.  In the interest of fairness for them, we have moved the concert date to allow them to participate fully in both activities.

Welcome to Parkside Middle Cambridge International School. We are a World Language Specialty Program and offer Spanish and French for Grades 6-8. We are proud to be the only Cambridge International School in Virginia and offer a wide variety of excellent academic programs, a diverse student body, small class sizes, and attention to the arts and technology, wellness, and the environment. We’re very proud of our experienced teachers, committed community, and amazing students!

Please browse our site to learn more about our school.

On June 4, they are also hosting an event with an Olympic Theme to start off their summer reading program for students in grades K-6. They are giving away a free book, so this may be a good event for 6th graders to attend. (or your own children)

New Door System
There is a new procedure for entering Parkside. We now have an added layer of security to keep our students, staff and visitors safe. We have installed the A.I.Phone Access Control Entry System. From now on all of our doors will be locked twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. This system allows for us to see all visitors to Parkside prior to them entering the building.  We expect that there will be a bit of an adjustment period as we all get used to using this new system. Please have patience with us. Some ways you can help are: by standing clearly in front of the camera, speaking clearly and awaiting any directions that may come from Parkside Staff. We understand that this may cause some delays. However, please keep in mind that the safety of our students, staff and visitors is always our first priority.
