School Reviews

  • Recommended July 26, 2011 - Parkway has had too many suicides. They have a major problem with bullying and drugs. - Posted by Student/Alumni
  • Recommended November 17, 2009 - Parkway High School is a excellent environment for diversity within the student body, athletics, and other activities like band and I feel that academics equal or exceed the surrounding schools. Drugs and alcohol have not been an issue for any of my children that have attended (the resistance to this starts in the home). GO Panthers! - Posted by Parent
  • Recommended September 08, 2009 - Parkway had 3 suicides last year. The environment completely suffocates a kid. Drugs and alcohol are a major problem. Made a big mistake sending my kid there. - Posted by Parent
  • Recommended December 03, 2006 - I recommend this school because out of all the schools I've attend, and I have attend a lot of schools, this school was the best school I have ever went to. All the parents of the students are highly involved with their childs academics. We score very high in state test. We're actually the second highest, right behind Magnet high school. All the extracurricular activities are very fun. There is an availability of music, art, and sports. We are always going tho the play-offs and championships. Parkway high school is the greatest school to attend. I am proud to be a Parkway Panther. - Posted by Student/Alumni
