Nice school, nice atmosphere, involved teachers and parents. Very diverse black white ratio and everyone gets along. That is my favorite thing about the school. Mostly down to earth caring parents who are involved and want their children to succeed.

My daughter attends Parkway. My son attended Parkway and now goes to Ewing HS. Parkway is a wonderful, dynamic, and loving school. The PTA is phenomenal. So far, three Principals walked the halls and lead a diverse team on teachers, administrators, students and staff. The tell-tale sign of a great school comes from my children. They rather go to school than stay home. Additionally, Ewing BOE works hard for this school. Local businesses, such as Educational Testing Service and other, render support for Parkway. Yup! It's a great school and school district!

I have 3 children in Parkway right now in K,2 and 5. We have been very pleased with the all aspects. We started with Mr. Feiber and we miss him, but the new principal, Mrs. Emory is doing a fine job. The teachers are so creative and the atmosphere is warm and supportive. There are also a lot of activities for the children to be involved in and the PTA is very active. We have been thinking of relocating and one of main reasons we have not is we don't want to move the kids out of this school.

I think Parkway is an excellent school all around. The former Principal, Mr. Fieber, had done a wonderful job with the students, teachers and staff. The teachers and staff seem to really care about their students and help them in any way they can - extra effort is definately put into helping the students. The curriculum is very good and diversable, the school seems to have enough child-teacher ratio as well. Not only do the children learn academics, but the teachers/curriculum also teach important life guidance and lessons to the students. I would recommend Parkway to anyone.

My daughter attended as I did. She had a great education and wonderful environment to learn in. The Principal, Mr. Feiber is one of the many reasons the school does so well. The staff is friendly and cooperative. My daughter received a well rounded education here. I'd definately recommend this school to others.

The NJ ASK is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of New Jersey. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
