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 an expansive selection of new elective courses focused on health, science and sports, and each student will get two elective classes. 

One of the most exciting aspects of these changes is the connection we are building with the Grossmont Unified High School District and the robust Career and Technical Education Pathways that are offered at the various high schools in our community. We aim to create direct links to innovative courses offered at the high schools and allow Parkway students to explore the diversity of future opportunities at colleges and in careers to engage them in deeper learning and the development of relevant skills. 

We have created a few videos highlighting several of the elective courses we will begin offering during the 2022-23 school year! Each of these courses has a direct link to CTE Pathways offered at the high schools in our community. Please check out the videos below for more details!
