    We couldn't have been more disappointed with this school. We found dealing with the curriculum and teachers very difficult (we had two children attending the school three years apart). The goal was to keep students in a status quo. We fought to let our children read books excel in areas they showed interest and to take the ALP tests. Though we were discouraged from letting our children take the ALP tests they passed and were accepted. We still opted for a decent education in private schools. Funding and standardized tests scores should not be the objective. For children to strive in this changing world being able to set oneself apart and find challenges is key. Parkway is not this kind of school

    Parkway School is the WHOLE PACKAGE. From rigorous academics to higher order thinking skills to real world application and opportunities for students to lead Parkway is an amazing school! The staff is phenomenal. Each teacher is highly qualified and knows every one of their children's strengths and goals. They match their instruction to the needs of the children; be they gifted or in need of support. The staff are all very positive and forward thinking. We could not have our children in a more academically rigorous engaging environment! We are thrilled!

    Our son was in KG last year at Parkway and we were very disappointed overall by the quality of Parkway. There were not many interactions between us (parents) and the teacher. Our son used to do well in Preschool and he loved going to school. He liked school less and less as the year went on. 24 students in his class; little attention given to individual students who are doing "well enough."

    By far the BEST elementary school in town. Teachers do an awesome job and are always prepared with new and exciting material that captures and challenges students to o their best.

    School deserves it because it makes impossible to bring forward the children with different learning problems despite not getting enough help from State like parents working in some way or another.

    Both of our children attend Parkway and we are very pleased with it. I attended Collegiate School in New York City 1-12 so I knew little about the public school systems. The teachers are wonderful. The programs are very complete. There is little area that we have issues with besides the fact that guidlines have to be dealt with on a state level.

    My daughter attended both Parkway and North Street School. Both schools are excellent in the education that you get at either school. The difference is what you may find in the mentallity of living in the 'back country' vs 'in town'. Parkway parents are more into volunteering and community. The kids are more innocent as a whole. At North Street the kids are more worldly and parents have less time/more money to donate instead. Overall you can not go wrong with either school. Just a matter of enviroment or mood preference.
