We have 2 children at PCS which started in grade 7 and 4. Our 8th grader has always achieved in grades and sports but wasn't challenged until PCS. She has been involved in volleyball, basketball, and soccer. I feel the school taught her how to study and learn the material which has prepared her for high school. Because of PCS, our 8th grader was accepted into the advanced High School academic programs. My 5th grader is thriving at PCS. The teachers are the main reason why he is doing so well. They are very loving and patient, but require your best and get it! He is achieving and absolutely loves going to school. The school offers a music program and opportunities to preform on stage, which most kids take advantage of. Lastly, PCS has taught my kids how to pray and have a relationship with Jesus, versus memories a prayer. Parkway has been a blessing to our family. We only wish we started at PCS in PreK.

My family has truly been blessed to have found Parkway Christian School. It is a loving, caring and safe environment. The benchmarks that have been set for Parkway far succeed other private schools in the area. When choosing a school you must look at the complete package. As a former educator, I can't say enough about the curriculum at Parkway. I also love the character traits that are taught at Parkway. They strive for the well rounded student. My two daughters began their education at Parkway starting in Pre-K3. They continue their education one in middle school and one in fourth grade. Life at Parkway is a fabulous place to be. It is the complete package.

PCS is a nurturing environment, exactly what I was looking for. This is my son's 2nd year at the elementary school. His teachers have been great! I could not have asked for a better learning environment. The curriculum is challenging yet the teachers make it fun using technology and manipulatives. The class sizes are small. And as a whole, Parkway feels like our extended family. We were very fortunate it to find this school.

I strongly recommend this school.

As an educator and parent, I made the decision to put my five year old daughter at Parkway. I have to say it has been one of the best decisions I''ve ever made. My baby girl LOVES her school. She enjoys school and best of all my daughter is reading and it's only December!!! Her teacher and the staff all know her by name and are always looking out for her well being. If you are looking for a family atmosphere with real academic goals, this is the place to put your child. I only wish I would have started her in their Pre-K program.

We are very blessed to have our daughter in 4th grade at Parkway. The teachers are so amazing and encouraging. All the staff knows our daughter by name. Our daughter has been involved in student government and several extra curricular activities. We are very pleased with the positive influence the teachers and administration are having with our daughter and are excited about the years to come. We would highly recommend Parkway Christian School.

Parkway Christian School is a very nice, well-rounded school. We have a middle school student and a third grade student. Both are achieving their academic goals set by the teachers and us. Whenever there has been a concern, we have always been encouraged to speak to the teacher or any of the administrative staff. The teachers know each of their students. The students are challenged and taught to be responsible for their achievements, actions, and character. We appreciate the extra after-school activities for the elementary students as well as the electives being offered for middle school. Both allow a great opportunity for the students to explore their interests and try new ones. While the reviews, weather they are 5-stars or 1-star, only tell the opinions of their story, a tour of the school helps to get a better idea of the school and if it is a right fit. We choose this school after we did a tour. Both the kids felt very at ease and we knew this was the place for us. We are very blessed to be a part of the Parkway Family.

We researched many schools before choosing Parkway. This school was the most well rounded. The kids are learning in a very loving and nurturing environment. The small class sizes allow for more specialized attention to the kids. My child loves it here!

Have had children in both public and other private school settings and Parkway is a step above! My first decision to move here was the strong academic programs. Then the family environment. Each child is treated as an individual with the appropriate guidance and love. My first child to graduated from here and has gone on to honors classes in high school. Teachers,leadership and Christian support has been amazing! My family has been part of this school the last 10 years and is continually show growth with the changing demands on education! Love this school!

This should be your first choice for a private, Christian school in your area. The education offered is excellent. The curriculum is advanced. I have children in 2 and 4 grades. Every week they both have traditional classes as well as classes in music, media, computers, PE, art, science lab, and Spanish.

I love this school. I feel so good about it. Excellent teachers and academic programs. The facilities are new and growing every year. Specials offered in Spanish, scienence lab, music, PE, art, media, and chapel add to the program. I love the emphasis on building good character in all students. It really feels like family here.

There is not a large enough space to fit all the wonderful comments I could make about this school. I have been a part of Parkway Christian School for 10 years, and I currently have 3 children attending here. The staff is remarkable and their dedication to the students is like no other. I highly recommend it!

Parkway has been our school for several years now. We have had great success here. Our oldest is moving on to middle school and we are so happy that we get to stay in this school for her transition. Both kids are building an awesome foundation academically, socially, and spiritually.

I have been 2 years in this school and I love it, the teachers are great, the facilities are beautiful and they really care about the kids. I live in Weston fl, where public schools are very good, and a tutor that gave a class to my daughter said Parkway is one year ahead. I am so lucky, I got the whole pkg!

Parkway Christian in Davie is a "little slice of heaven." We have 3 children currently attending the school (One in 7th, One in 5th, and One in 2nd). The Parkway family is an extension of our traditional family; one of which we feel blessed to be a part of. We know that our family values, family expectations, and beliefs are reinforced each day at Parkway. The loving atmoshphere is evident in all aspects of the school. From the wonderful teachers, staff, students and volunteers, our children are treated with love and respect by all. All children are encouraged to be their own person, while learning the importance of God, kindness, and respect. We commonly joke about wishing our kids could stay at Parkway through all their educational years, and not be exposed to the "real world!" What an amazing family with whom we have been blessed to spend the last few years.
