History

The first classes began at Parkway North during the 1971-72 academic year, although the North building did not open until Fall 1972. During the first year, North students attended classes at Parkway Central on a split schedule from noon to 6:00 pm. Parkway North was the first of the Parkway schools to have its own swimming pool.


Sports

The school's football team had a notable 2006 season, when it celebrated an 11-0 record. The school also has an award winning track team, soccer team, volleyball team, and golf team. Both male and female students part of the track and football team won districts in 2007. The Parkway North high marching band did well at the Edward's Jone Dome competition, the biggest competition of the year. With the direction of Mark Linn, the band has a bright future.


Building architecture

The school is notable in its extensive use of open classrooms, insofar that the school was originally constructed without walls separating classrooms. This was a trend in architecture in 1971 when the building was constructed. However, the infeasibility of this design was discovered ten years later, and plaster walls were inserted between classrooms, resulting in an eclectic mix of architectural styling, not to mention the logistical problems with these newly-created rooms receiving proper HVAC ventilation. The new science department contains traditional classrooms with walls, moving the school away from its original architecture.
