I have a friend who is moving to the St. Louis area and will be in the area of the Parkway School District. My friend says that there are some different schools in the district ie. Parkway Central, Parkway West, etc...Can his children attend any of the schools in the district or are there boundaries? Any info would be greatly appreciated as they are moving in the next month.

There are boundaries associated within each of the Parkway Districts, North/Central/South and West. There is also Fern Ridge high school, but I'm unsure of how it affiliated within the district. From my very limited knowledge, all the districts are considered to be pretty good, with North being the "least desirable" on the list...but this doesn't mean it's a undesirable school within the St. Louis Area, quite the opposite in fact.

North has by far the most minorities and the most FRL kids, as well as the most mobility of students (moving in and out of the area) and their test scores reflect this. Interestingly though, they also send the most kids to college. I don't know as much about the other three unfortunately.

My family and I moved to the Parkway West area specifically to send our two daughters through a good school system. They graduated in 2009 and 2011 and received great educations. We lucked out with the outstanding art department at Parkway West High School. Our younger daughter, an aspiring visual artist, was well prepared to earn a nearly full academic ride to the Kansas City Art Institute.

Parkway is an excellent suburban public school district.

Default Parkway School District Boundaries

Here is a link to the Parkway School District school boundaries: [url=http://www.pkwy.k12.mo.us/map/parkwayMap.cfm]Parkway Map[/url]
The student needs to live within the Parkway School District. In most cases the child goes to the school within the boundary area. There are exceptions, like in the near-by Rockwood District, of 'limited choice' where the parent/student can petition into another school with the family providing transportation to and from.

This link to the Parkway School District will provide your friend with information on boundaries Parkway Map. Here is a link to Rockwood School District boundaries http://www.rockwood.k12.mo.us/aboutu...oundaries.aspx. Both school districts will allow a student to attend a school within the school district out of the boundary area. This is only if a space is available for the student. The parent/student must petition the school every year. They can't assume once they get in they will always have a spot. No school district transportation is provided for the student.
