I cannot speak highly enough about Parkway School. Dr. Sandi Mond set the tone of excellence and community as the first principal after Parkway's reopening in the early 1990s. This tradition carries on today and I wish all students and their families could experience a school community like this one. The teachers are dedicated and the parent body is very supportive of its teachers. My three children were fortunate to have attended this rare gem of a school.
