Welcome to Parkway Elementary!

Inspiring Potential. Enriching Futures.

Mrs. Donna Kinn
Principal
 

Parkway School is home to 415 students in Grades K through 4, and 61 staff members. An NCLB Blue Ribbon School, we offer students a safe, positive and healthy learning environment in which to grow both socially, emotionally, and academically.

Through Mount Laurel School District and school level goals, our school has experienced increased public involvement in many areas that shape the district mission to provide an exemplary education to each child. Integrated with the best current instructional practices and opportunities, that planning builds a neighborhood school framework that is uniquely reflective of the community it serves.

One of the special things at Parkway School is The Circle of Giving,  an exceptional all-school volunteer program that teaches us all the gift of giving and sharing to help others.
