The purpose of this study was to determine the opinions of parents toward the accelerated school program. The data were gathered from a questionnaire created by the researcher. Parents whose children attended an accelerated school program were surveyed to determine their opinions about the program. Six major components were assessed: (1) contract agreement, (2) remedial program, (3) Project READ, (4) extended day activities, (5) cooperative learning, and (6) workshops designed to train parents to help their children. An analysis of the data collected during this study indicated most parents were knowledgeable and familiar with the program. Parents also felt they were informed and involved in the school program. In all but two of the components assessed, most parents indicated they were positive about and in favor of the program. Parents had the most negative perception of the contract agreement and the workshops. Parents also appeared to be less familiar with these aspects of the program.
