Parkway North High School
Parkway Schools- St. Louis

Parkway North Collage

One of Parkway North's outstanding acheivements is the high level of engagement of students and faculty in student-initiated projects to benefit the school and the community. For example, students presented on composting to the Superintendent, and it became a district-wide initiative. Student clubs have been competitive nationally in Envirothon - an environmental problem solving challenge, and in the Lexus Eco-Challenge, for which they organized an appliance recycling drive for the community. The outdoor education curriculum includes "Adventure Pursuits" with a unit on climbing and rappelling. Reductions in the school's environmental footprint include a 25% reduction in energy use per student and converting at least 8% of the school site to ecologically beneficial landscaping.
