Parkway encourages students to do their best. Staff refers to students as "Parkway Scholars" and remains consistent with their message of "you can do it".

Respect is taught in each class from the beginning of the school year and is visible when you walk the halls of Parkway. Staff/teachers are always guiding students down the right path to becoming respectful citizens.

Staff and teachers are Parkway are well seasoned and know who and where to reach out to for assistance when there is a child in crisis. They do this with the utmost discretion and in a caring manner.

The administrative staff have its challenges with psychosocial issues that some students bring from their home life. This can sometimes create a barrier to learning. However, staff is well prepared to handle these challenges and do an amazing job with creating a safe learning environment for all students at Parkway.

Teachers are good and are genuine when showing that they care for students. Wish there was more parent involvement. Currently the PTO is struggling to stay active with only a few parents to manage PTO business. More parent involvement would make this a great school.

Teachers are very caring for the students. Communication from the adminstration is poor. Teachers work hard to meet student needs.

I am extremely pleased with the overall concern that the teachers display for their students. I believe that if the parents show an interest the teachers will bend over backwards to meet us. I have also had a positive experience with the administrative folks who seem to be swamped, but never to busy to help me out and I appreciate them (especially Angie, she's the greatest). I'm a foster mom, and she's helped me with scheduling, after school programs, and whatever our needs are- she's the greatest.
