Parkway-Center City Reviews

By , a Former Student on

I graduated from this school in 1989. I feel very fortunate to have been selected to attend. Parkway Program was not your ordinary high school, we learned independence and a well rounded diverse education that other school can not provide. The school taught me about life experiences and to think outside the box. My most memorable teachers were Jeanette Jimenez  who challenged me on so many levels and Don Richmond who never allowed me to give up on things that did not come easy to me. I feel any student could benefit from attending Parkway Program.
