Welcome

Parkway Sports & Health Science Academy

Hello PKMS Community! 

Something exciting is happening at Parkway, and we invite you to learn more! Starting in 2022-2023, Parkway Middle School will become Parkway Sports & Health Science Academy! 

We will continue to offer academically rigorous, traditional curriculum in Language Arts, Math, History, Science and PE. However, we will be adding a diverse selection of new elective courses focused on health, science and sports, and each student will get two elective classes. 

Please check out our video to learn more!

8th Grade Promotion

Friday, June 17th (the last day of school) is 8th grade promotion from 7:45 am to approximately 8:45 am, and 8th graders are dismissed right after promotion. Dress code applies. Because seating is limited, we ask that no more than 5 family members attend if possible. Seating is first come, first served. Please keep in mind that every year, we inevitably have some family members who are unable to find seating and stand for the duration of the ceremony.

Parking is available in the upper parking lot right outside of the school, the lower back lot near the softball fields (accessible through the YMCA parking lot), La Mesita Park and street parking. The lower front parking lot next to the turf field is reserved for staff. Please do not park in the tow-away exit area, at any red curb or at the Fire Department lot or driveway.
