Parkway High School Reviews

I am a military child and I had just recently moved to Louisiana, while in transition my councilor didnt help me what so ever and most if not all of the administrators were very rude I was told I was not allowed to take a softball class(after playing softball for 3 years) and instead I was forced into taking college classes which took away my softball recruiter as well as a scholarship. It is also a very bias school and if you are not well known in the town then you are not treated as well as the other students by the faculty. Students being caught with drugs and teachers turning a blind eye because said student was a football player/family friend. Students have also been caught with guns, as well as other weapons, and no consequences have been given. There seems to be a fight at least twice a week at this school. Senior year is suppose to be the best year of your high school years and parkway has made mine the worst!

Parkway High was the best! There is something for everyone. Something meaning club, academics, sports, etc.
I have attended Parkway High School for four years. Out of all the activities the school offers, the one that I have enjoyed the most is band. Our band program is amazing. Year after year, we bring recognition to our program, the school, and our state. Our directors are wonderful music educators who push us to do our best. Another positive aspect of our school is that of safety. I feel safe each day when I am at school. The administration acts quickly on all information that appears to be harmful to students and teachers. That is important as many schools are facing tragedies more often these days.
