    Parkway Christian School is a very nice well-rounded school. We have a middle school student and a third grade student. Both are achieving their academic goals set by the teachers and us. Whenever there has been a concern we have always been encouraged to speak to the teacher or any of the administrative staff. The teachers know each of their students. The students are challenged and taught to be responsible for their achievements actions and character. We appreciate the extra after-school activities for the elementary students as well as the electives being offered for middle school. Both allow a great opportunity for the students to explore their interests and try new ones. While the reviews weather they are 5-stars or 1-star only tell the opinions of their story a tour of the school helps to get a better idea of the school and if it is a right fit. We choose this school after we did a tour. Both the kids felt very at ease and we knew this was the place for us. We are very blessed to be a part of the Parkway Family.

    I had attended this school from 7th and 8th grade and let me tell you that the staff was anything BUT welcoming. if you haven't been going there since you were younger forget about being treated as equal as the other kids at that school. the punishments that I would receive were quite radical compared to other students in the school who had committed the same crime. the staff treats it's students like "family" but I don't know how good that can be. they were always in my business and wouldn't leave me alone as if they personally knew me I didn't feel comfortable with the administrator asking me about my "love life" as if she was my aunt or something. the point of the matter is is that everything is taken to the extreme at this school the staff (not including some of the teachers) can favorite kids and it's noticeable and brings the child down heck I would know. oh and if your child is a little different and has their own sense of style don't bother sending them here unless you want your kid to be antagonized for being original.

    My children have attended Parkway since 2007. My older daughter has since graduated from Parkway and was accepted at Archbishop McCarthy High School where she is a senior now. My younger daughter is in middle school. We love the small class sizes and fantastic learning environment. They have expanded their technology use by allowing the students to use Ipads and Kindles for books notes research which is great as they can access their school books as ebooks and not have to carry huge heavy backpacks. The staff is amazing and very responsive to any questions or concerns at any time. We searched many schools before we made our decision and would highly recommend Parkway from Preschool all the way to 8th grade.

    To reply to the May 24 2013 post. I guess when the school had their little "Open House" twenty two people logged n and rated the school on this site? What did they hand out the website address to everybody? The administration played favorites while my children were there and I'll bet they still do. The "Do as I say not as I do" philosophy has no place in a Christian environment. The school is supposed to be non-denominational but leans in a very specific direction. I want my children to know they should treat everyone how they want to be treated at all times not just when they feel like it or it benefits them. What good is an open door policy when they don't really listen to you or do what they want regardless of what you've said. The school is average for academics but not what we were expecting for spiritual education.

    This school has been nothing but dedicated to the success of its students. The staff goes above and beyond in all that they do. The mission of the school is sound and delivered. The staff follows through on their commitments to the families. Way to go!

    This post is to address the one posted on March 27 2013. The school held a school wide event (preschool elementary and middle school on February 14 2013 where students and parents had the option to express their love and appreciation for the school or visit with Adminstrators on the spot to express concerns. Not one person had anything negative to say and the support for the school was strong. The staff has always had an open doir policy and continues to improve the program while inviting parents and students to be a part of the process.

    22 five star reviews all on February 14 2013. the next newest is January 2013 and then March 2012. It appears that someone is padding the stats to falsely increase the community ratings of the school. That should speak volumes about this school. My children have been gone from Parkway and have realized just how bad the issues were/are.

    Parkway Christian School is an awesome school from Kindergarten to eight grade. The teachers here are amazing and the curriculum is fantastic. My daughter is a first grader and reads at a much higher level and this is all because of the teachers and their dedication. The atmosphere is very family friendly teachers and staff know all the children by name. I love this school and would recommend to all my friends and family that wants their child or children to have a structured education with a family oriented atmosphere.

    We're new to the school - we moved and had to start mid-year. My kids are in Pre-Kinder (what they call Kindergarten Prep) and 1st Grade. Their teachers really made them feel welcome and they adapted very quickly. We moved from another country so I was expecting it to be much harder for them with so many changes at once and having to go to a class where everyone already knew each other and had been together one semester already. But from day one they felt comfortable at their new school. Also I felt very welcome from the first phone conversation while researching schools. They really took the time to tell me all the details about their school and why they think it's great. I really like the small school feel small class sizes - there are 10 in Kindergarten Prep and 16 in my daughter's 1st Grade class and opportunities for parent involvement. After 6 weeks here I have a very good impression of this school. It is a blessing for us to be here.

    I recently changed my 3rd grade child from public to this wonderful private school. I continue to be impressed the with high level of academics Christian values and friendly competent staff. We were worried about making such a big change but this school went out of it's way to make our child and family feel very welcome and informed.

    We have 2 children at PCS which started in grade 7 and 4. Our 8th grader has always achieved in grades and sports but wasn't challenged until PCS. She has been involved in volleyball basketball and soccer. I feel the school taught her how to study and learn the material which has prepared her for high school. Because of PCS our 8th grader was accepted into the advanced High School academic programs. My 5th grader is thriving at PCS. The teachers are the main reason why he is doing so well. They are very loving and patient but require your best and get it! He is achieving and absolutely loves going to school. The school offers a music program and opportunities to preform on stage which most kids take advantage of. Lastly PCS has taught my kids how to pray and have a relationship with Jesus versus memories a prayer. Parkway has been a blessing to our family. We only wish we started at PCS in PreK.

    Parkway is an excellent school providing the students with high quality education in a nurturing environment. I transferred my children from a highly rated public school and I could not be happier with my decision.

    Parkway Christian School should be your first choice for your child's education. It provides an excellent education. But more importantly it provides a loving nurturing family-type environment which encourages learning.

    My family has truly been blessed to have found Parkway Christian School. It is a loving caring and safe environment. The benchmarks that have been set for Parkway far succeed other private schools in the area. When choosing a school you must look at the complete package. As a former educator I can't say enough about the curriculum at Parkway. I also love the character traits that are taught at Parkway. They strive for the well rounded student. My two daughters began their education at Parkway starting in Pre-K3. They continue their education one in middle school and one in fourth grade. Life at Parkway is a fabulous place to be. It is the complete package.
