Parkway Northwest High School Reviews

My experience at Parkway Northwest was very interesting. It is a school for peace and social justice and like any other school things happen but they do try to live up to their name. Somethings that I maybe would like to change about it is making it a little bit more challenging academically because even though it is a special admit school it is very easy to get into. Also maybe more outside trips and activities but overall it is a nice school. I met some very great people while I was there and the teachers that I had really cared about our future and where we would end up! The counselor was very helpful in choosing colleges and making sure everyone knew that they could do it.

I’ve been going here for four years and I have had the best experience. They make sure you are focused and since it is a smaller sized school you get the faculty/staffs undivided attention!
Parkway NW is very unorganized. The staff, for the most part, are unaware of how to tolerate and speak to young ones. The lunch is horrible! On the other hand, there are a few pros to this school, such as community service opportunities and a medal detector to ensure everyone's safety.
