A beautiful building is home to one of the few Montessori middle schools in Minnesota. Students enjoy freedom to learn,
explore and understand the world around them. Instruction is based on guiding each child to discover his or her individual
strengths, needs, likes and learning styles under the Montessori philosophy. Students are greeted by large, raised-garden
beds, providing a wonderful way to connect with nature, explore the science of food and experience the cycle of the seasons.
Lively mixed-grade classrooms are designed to help students stay engaged and inspired. In addition to core subjects,
Parkway offers vocal and instrumental music, visual arts, Japanese and French languages, computer-aided design, physical
education, after-school sports and Extended Day for Learning (EDL). We’re proud of our community partners who most
recently landscaped our front entry, updated our courtyard and created two outdoor classrooms. Our unique location, next
door to Penny Park and an urban forest, provides opportunities for natural habitat exploration.
