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 School is a powerhouse school when it comes to sports but also when it comes to the band program. There is a culture of love and strong support amongst the student-body (including the athletes) and community alike for the 200+ person marching band known as the "Pride of Pantherland". The school pride and spirit thrives during football season as the majority of students adamantly support the team. There is also a strong academic department that pushes the students to succeed and to always put their school work before their other activities, even sports. The coaches at Parkway always remind the kids on their teams that they are a "STUDENT athlete" therefore they shouldn't just focus on their sports but their academics too and that their academics come before anything else.
Overall Parkway High School is a great school with academics being the priority. The teachers are well-adjusted and try to make sure everyone is doing the best they can by making real connections with their students. The athletics part of the school is excellent in the sense that we excel in majority of the sports we provide. Parkway's band is also exceptional and seems to win an award every other week. The students are well rounded and strive to be the best that can be in all aspects in life. The atmosphere is extremely warm and everyone wants everyone to succeed. I would encourage anyone to attend Parkway and have the wonderful experience I have had.
