Parkman Elementary School was closed as part of school closings in 2013. Categorized as a level 3 "on probation" school, students from Parkman were transferred to the level 2 "welcoming school" Jesse Sherwood School that is within a mile radius.
The school received a level 3 standing because of low enrollment, under utilization, and high cost to maintain and update the building.
The building is still up for sale with restrictions on what programs can occupy the space.
