Parkway Elementary School 2

Posted June 06, 2014

My daughter started Parkway in PreK2 . The teacher is patient, and experienced with such little brains. She is very approachable and cares about every student in her class. However, I think it starts and ends with this class. I found some of the teachers speaking to very young children; ages 2, 3 and 4, in very loud and angry tones. It is very disturbing to hear them yell at these children. The Administration is very distant with the parents, but not in the financial department. As a new parent who has a child enrolled, I have never been asked about my child's performance or a simply "How are you today". The principal and assistant principal both had formal education, however, their demeanor is of someone without any formal education, or manners learned from childhood. They are disconnected with parents, teachers and children. It is disturbing to see the volume of parents that have transferred their children from the school due to his behavior and some of the teachers. With all his education he just doesn't comprehend {No students enrolled means an empty classroom; grade 7}. The school has great potential, but it must start with administration. My child will be transferring !

My daughter attended Parkway from Pre-K. She is now in the 2nd grade and performing well beyond that of an above average 2nd grader. Parkway definitely has the staff and resources to produce brilliant children. The staff stay on top of the students, though there is no overwhelming pressure. There is a sincere concern that can be seen from teacher to student. I have always been happy with my daughter's academic achievements, she, as well as her classmates can challenge other students and beat them out by far. Last year Parkway began a toddler class (2 yr). This program, as well as the 3 and 4 year old program need a lot of work. The school should never have tried this. These are specialized ages and require much more attention than staff has to give, grades K-8, are definitely strong.
