Christian Shool in Question. My daughter goes to this school as well, since she was kindergarten. The reason I gave it 1 star is because the way this school run their system. They are always stress it that this is a Christian school but the way they treat us is not like Christian school. it is all about money, business. There is no compromise if you late on payment, eventhough they KNOW they will get their money every month. You late on your payment they charge you $ 25 late fee, longger than 2 weeks late your child cannot come to the school. No Excuse, they DO NOT Care! I dont think that how you treat people. Dont have compation for others, sad
No Child Left Behind.
Upon my son entering his class I revealed my son's learning obstacles, even shared a tutorial review with the teacher. Oh he gave me his word that he would help, considering his daughter was dyslexic and he understood the challenges the child faces. I gave my personal contact information, asked to be kept aware of my son's progress, but instead he allowed my son to fail his class. I did not receive graded work to review, he didn't call to say he's failing, and always appeared to be extremely overwhelmed in the afternoons for a quick chat. Ultimately the decision you choose to make regarding this school is yours, however I would recommend you seek elsewhere for your child.

No Child Left Behind. After paying Parkway Christian Academy over $30,000.00 for educating my daughter from the 6th through most of the 12th grade, she is unable to pass the Math Exit Exam in public school which is based on 8th to 9th grade mathematics skills. While attending Parkway, she managed A's and B's for the majority of her math classes. There were a couple of grading periods that she made C's, but she always managed to bring them up. She was told when she enrolled in public school for the final 6 months of her Senior year (against my wishes), that she had already completed the math requirements for high school, and that taking additional math was optional. As her parent, there was never a clue in looking over her report cards or work sent home from Parkway that my daughter had any deficiency in math. It became painfully evident after she failed the Math Exit Exam in public school twice. It is obvious that Parkway had not prepared my daughter for college, or even high school for that matter. As a result, my daughter will not be allowed to get her diploma with the rest of her class in May. I approached Parkway Christian Academy with a simple request in light of the amount of money I had spent on her education, their "Christian mission," and ample evidence that their math program is severely lacking: Let my daughter come back for the final grading period of the school year in order to "walk" and get her diploma. They denied my request, stating that it was too late in the school year to do so. I do not feel that this was a fair decision in light of the facts. Shame of Parkway Christian Academy! If you are looking for a private school in the eastern area of Birmingham for your loved one because you are under the notion that a private education is more beneficial than a public education, I would recommend that your search does not include Parkway Christian Academy.
