We bought a home in Creve Coeur specifically so our children could attend Parkway Schools. I have been completely disappointed and wish that we never left the Lindbergh District. Parkway USED to be one of the top rated districts in the state, but that is no longer the case. I have had children in Ross Elem, NEMS and North High...all are over overcrowded and the education left much to be desired. Any complaints, concerns or suggestions are met with deaf ears. Money is spent on tvs in elementary school hallways of all things. I have literally walked by classrooms and seen teachers and the majority of students, sitting silently and playing on their cell. There are too many things I have seen over the last few years to mention. My children now attend Collegiate School of Medicine & Bioscience and Compton-Drew Investigative Learning Center, both magnet schools. The schools have wonderful ratings, the staff is very responsive, my kids are challenged, feel safe and there is a small student/teacher ratio. I wish I would have put them in magnet schools sooner. I have had people ask about Parkway and I always steer them clear.
You know, at first I only thought this school was great; but I have now met more then meets the eye (and yes, I'm a student that goes here) and as I toured around other schools, this is a school that should NEVER be taken for granted. The community varies on what age you are and if you're Asian or not, and my grade level community is outstanding. The teachers were extremely polite; although there might be just a handful of them that aren't as polite (but they must surely have logical reasons as to why). The education I learn there is satisfying and fun, and to me, this is my secondary home. When summer break started, I was still shook at how fast the time flew by in 7th grade; and unhappy to. Video Game marathons sounds awesome at first, but if you're Asian (like me) or maybe not, then you know you must have some type of homework to do. Counselors are also pleasant as well. But that's not to say that this school is perfect, there are bond to be rotten potatoes in everywhere. But for the biggest portion, students will enjoy this school; or maybe even love this school. This building holds a chest of memories, kindness, compassion, achedemics, but there isn't a single gram of suffer.
So this is school is a nightmare. Bullying is too much. The principals and what not dont even help you during conflicts they dont really solve it. I HATE THIS SCHOOL! SHAME ON THIS FRICKEN SCHOOL.
I am a student attending this school, and let me just state that it's an amazing school with great teachers. The quality of education we receive is amazing, and (most) of the teachers are very nice. The cafeteria offers a snack bar, and we have a large library with a variety of books and a fish tank. Principal action varies from situation to situation, and I do agree it could improve with bullying. We are required to fill out a statement, but sometimes the issue is not addressed for days. The counseling system is a bit off, as well. Especially for students who have anxiety, as they are generally just dismissed back to class. Overall, it is a great school and the teachers are very dedicated to what they do. We are a diverse school, and the officials are very accepting of others cultures and beliefs, and those of other places are very proud to show who they are. The teachers are all very nice, and help us strive to push ourselves in our academic field.
NEMS has been the greatest place for me as a student. Principals and counselors know when to step away and step in between issues with students. Yes there is some bullying but the school has laid it upon our shoulder to stop it. NEMS gives us the rights as students and the advice as guiders
Im a student that goes to nems and i think its a pretty good school but all schools have there faults. yes, there is some bullying but all schools have it and there isnt as much anymore as there was. I really like going here and i like almost all of my teachers. most of the students are very nice and if you are considering to go here, i think u should.
I am a parent of a Nems's student. If you belong to a different culture, then this school is not for you. Too much bullying. This school's administration is very poor. Very stressful environment. The leadership is quite lacking. No safety and no discipline. I would never recommend this school to anyone.
Im a student at nems and the transition into middle school was really smooth. we had an oreintation, the teachers from nems came to elementary schools. the elementary teachers told us what it was really like so there were no suprises, and there were none. all the teachers really care how to do and want you to succeed. it it's hard for you, every single one would go out of their way to make it easier. ive learned so much and i love my teachers. i feel really safe there and it feels like home. im not just saying this. if you are moving to parkway district, i hope this is the first school you consider.
I am a student here and I think that some of the teachers are unfair torwards some of there students. Some teachers have favorites so that tends to lead to problems. Other than That I love this school The extracurricular activities are great especially the choir Mr.Brown is awesome!
I have a student in the special school district that attends NEM and we couln't be happier. We transitioned smoothly in part because the staff, starting with the principal down to the nurse have been very involved, accepting, and dedicated to our son's education.
This school has real problems. It is overcrowded, and that leads to big problems. The administrators are horrible, and very ineffective. Discipline is a big problem, and not at all well handled. They do not at all provide good feedback to parents. This school is going downhill fast!
some of the teachers are very prejudice and rude the blame things on students with little information others are very nice and helpful the principals and counselor are very caring and are will make sure you get the best education
I think this school is wonderful. I am a student there and theres nothing better then a opinion from someone whos always there. theres just something about the teachers at this school and they make you feel like your home. Parkway Northeast middle is a very outstanding school with outstanding teachers and outstanding acheivements. This is by far the best school that I have ever been to.
Northeast isn't all it's cracked up to be. Having attended other schools and then transferring to Northeast, I found the work to be so far behind. The population, in terms of numbers is diverse, but the number of minority students in advanced classes isn't proportionate. I was not at all happy with the Language Arts or Social Studies classes (I spent an enormous amount of time simply coloring and answering elemenatry questions).
Please disregard the negative things that has been previously stated about Northeast Middle School. I attended Ross Elementary and Northeast Middle, and now attending North High School, and I would have to say most of the pleasent experiences I have had in my schooling was at Northeast Middle. Children have attachments to teachers, there is lots of diversity, and the whole faculty strives each and every student to succeed. So, if you are looking at the Parkway School District, I strongly encourage you to consider this school. Instead of taking the side of a parent, listen to a student who attended Northeast for three years and knows first-hand what this school is like. Thank You.
Parkway Northeast Middle School has wonderful administrators who work closely with teachers to provide the best learning environment for its 1100 students. The team approach works well with a student body of this size breaking down the grade into groups of 75-100 students, and teachers are able to get to know their students. Discipline is a challenge as it is with all middle school students but the staff has worked over the past year to address these issues. I love the diversity of the student population. The music program (orchestra, band and choir) is fantastic.
Having children go from elementary school, through middle school and into high school, Northeast is most definitely the worst of the 3. There are too many principals who can't control the student body, ineffective teaching skills and absolutely no discipline. If you plan on moving to the Parkway School District, stay clear of this school.
