Working Together to Ensure Academic Success for ALL Students.
Parkwood Elementary School is a part of the Greater Clark County Schools system with an enrollment over 500. We're proud of our heritage of educational innovation and our community.
The current enrollment in preschool through 5th grade is 550 children. The pupil-teacher ratio is 22-1. Kindergarten, 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grades are considered Prime Time classrooms with a maximum of 18-1 ratio in kindergarten and 1st grades. 2nd and 3rd grades have a ratio of 20-1.
Our technology status is good and getting better. We have an updated computer lab, two student stations in every classroom, projectors in all classrooms and interactive whiteboards in grades 3-5. The PCs are networked to a central server with access to the Internet.
Parkwood School opened to educate children in the Parkwood area in August of 1968. The original building contained 20 classrooms, library, cafeteria, and gymnasium.
The school opened with an enrollment of 539 students in kindergarten through grade six. Our enrollment indicated that we would not have enough room for all of the children that were walk-in pupils. An addition was planned and work began shortly after the 1968 opening of school. Six rooms, a workroom, and restroom facilities were added and competed in 1971. Four more classrooms were added for the 1999-2000 school year.
Parkwood PTO sponsors a fall fundraiser. PTO also sponsors festivals and other family activities. To learn more, please see the PTO link.
Parkwood also participates in dough-raising night with Dominoes Pizza. Parkwood earns 20% of the profits from every pizza sold on the 2nd Tuesday of each month when the purchaser mentions Parkwood.
