    This school is all about politics. I will be moving my child to a private school after this year to finish out his last two years. I have had an issue with a teacher that punished my child for no reason. When I addressed the issues to the Assistant Principals there was always an excuse to why this was happening but it was a different story and excuse each time. I never got the same story by any of them. Plus no one had any proof to why my child was being punished except for me and they knew this because I told them I had everything they needed to see. I went to the School Board with the issues and they inturned had the Principal call me. Once again nothing done! I think this school should be investigated for bullying by the admistrations. They are only concerned with certain children and they throw out the ones that don't meet their expectations. It should be about all the children! This school will never get a positive rating from me my family or friends.

    This school is amazing keeping up with the amazing South Bossier standard. Challenging curriculum amazing and hard working extracurricular activities such as band. Definitely a school you'll look back on and say "I loved that school." Go Panthers!

    This school is awful. Twice this school has allowed my ex wife to enroll my son to their school without having my permission and I'm the the father and custodial parent

    South bossier schools are excellent. Parkway has a gorgeous state of the art new campus. Excellent band and enrichment activities. curriculum is challenging for my gifted student and we couldnt be happier. As a military family we are always looking for the best areas to be in with each move and we really hit the jackpot in South Bossier.

    I have always loved south Bossier Schools I myself attended all of them as a kid. My child has entered highschool this yr and I was truely excited until I had to speak with the principal who was rude before I even had the reason for contacting her out of my mouth. She gave me the impression she wasnt interrested in my concern. I hope this was a one time thing because we have 4 yrs to go at PHS and I have always wanted my child to attend here. Go Panthers!

    Parkway is an amazing school it is well rounded and has numerous afterschool activities so everybody can be involved. While this offers students to branchout Parkway makes sure that the students have a firm foundation of the basic and the school's scores prove it. Even in a new building Parkway balances keeping traditions and introducing new opportunities with grace and pure school spirit.

    I attended Parkway in the 90s and moved back to this district so my children would attend this school. This school maintains strict discipline standards that sometimes seem too strict but this creates a safer environment. There are a few teachers that are control freaks and do not know how to teach but more of the teachers care and do a good job. There are many extracurricular programs a great art program an award winning band and a great AFJROTC. I feel my children are getting a well rounded education.

    Because of the excellent programs they have to serve all of our young adults. I feel that Parkway is one of our excellent schools of Louisiana. Where our kids get the best educators in the Arklatex. I would give Parkway 5 stars

    Parkway now has a new building with up-to-date facilities. It has a great variety of classes offered way beyond other schools in the area. There are many extracurricular activities of all sorts. The principal is an excellent leader and most of the teachers either have an advanced degree or they are working on one. Parents are involved in the school in many activities. The discipline is strict but fair and it is a safe school.

    I am a parent and a previous student. I graduated like my brother and sister in the early eighties and when it was time for my children to enter high school we moved back from Shreveport to attend Parkway. I have 2 children who have now graduated one that will be in the first graduating class from the nearly completed new campus this school year and two more to go. My son's graduating class this year was offered over 2.7 million dollars in scholarship money and is sending a fellow student with a half million dollars in scholarships to West Point. That is attributable to the staff and programs that are offered at PHS. We have award winning academics athletics and music programs. I love South Bossier and the schools are a big part of that. Go Panthers!

    Stay away! Teachers are far more concerned with exerting their authority over students than teaching or providing a creative atmosphere. The overall environment is oppressive and rules enforcement is draconian.

    I have attended a lot of schools and this is by far the worse school I have ever been to. The teachers do not do their jobs as well as they should. Teachers are supposed to teach and help their students learn.
