Parkway has what parents want!

The Parkway School District is one of only 29 of 523 Missouri school districts receiving national recognition from SchoolMatch, a firm specializing in rating K-12 schools across the country.

SchoolMatch is an independent school selection consulting firm. Schools are chosen for the award based on qualities parents desire for their child's school. The information is gathered through a nationwide survey of parents. SchoolMatch provides information to corporations, real estate firms, and economic development offices across the country to help families find schools for their children.

According to SchoolMatch surveys, the qualities parents most often want in a school system include:

  • Competitive in academic test scores and academically solid
  • Accredited
  • Recognized for excellence by a national foundation or the U.S. Department of Education
  • Competitive in teacher salaries
  • Above average in instructional expenditures on a national basis
  • Above average in expenditures for library/media services on a national basis
  • Small class size

Parkway has consistently received the SchoolMatch award since it was initiated in 1992.
