My son my nephews and many family members went Parkway inthe 80's & 90' it was a agreat school then but much better better mow . Ms.Lewis is an exceptional Principal, every morning she stands in the hallway greets /intracts with her students. i believe she knows almost all of her students. My granddaughter is presently attending Parkway and is in Grade 1. Her teacher Mrs. Wilkerson exhibits tolerance. She works well with parents and her students for the development of the students GREAT JOB PARKWAY P.MOORE ( A GRANDPARENT)

There're some excellent teachers at parkway. Parents need to help enforce what their child learned when at home. Teachers alone cannot do it. If we want to see grade improvement, parents please help.

I had an overall mistrust of the public school system in general. This was because of my experience as a child in the New York school system. When I came to Florida it didn't get that better. I enrolled my son in private school and made up my mind to keep paying three hundred fifty dollars per month for private school, until he reaches grade eight. Once he had a solid foundation, I would send him to a public high school. I heard about the FCAT and realized that my son was exempt from it. I wonder if my child could pass this test. I did a lot of investigating and found Parkway Elementary had an overall FCAT score B for the past two years. It was only a couple of minutes from my house. The reading program is great. The grant the school got from Tallahassee is worth it. I am working with my son to read to me thirty minutes per day and ask him reading comprehension questions. Principal Zell, please keep working to ensure our kids have good education. Dean Richards

About the tests


In 2013-2014 Florida used the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT 2.0) to test students in grades 3 through 10 in reading, 3 through 8 in math, in grades 5 and 8 in science, and in grades 4, 8, and 10 in writing. The FCAT 2.0 is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Florida. The FCAT 2.0 has 5 achievement levels, with level 1 being the lowest and level 5 the highest. Florida considers scores of level 3 and higher to be on or above grade level. The goal is for all students to score at or above level 3.

About the tests


Florida uses School Grades to measure the overall performance of a school each year on the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT). Each school is assigned a letter grade (A-F) based on three criteria: the overall performance on the FCAT, the percentage of eligible students who took the test, and whether or not students made progress in reading and math. The School Grades are calculated by adding points earned from each of the performance criteria listed above.
