All four Parkway high schools have been named top high schools for STEM, according to Newsweek. Newsweek announced its ranking of the top 5,000 STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) high schools, honoring excellence in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
Parkway is one of only six districts in Missouri to receive this designation. Now in its 21st year, the program honors schools and school districts for outstanding efforts by teachers, administrators, parents, students and community leaders and their support for music education as part of the core curriculum.
In cooperation with researchers at The Music Research Institute at the University of Kansas, the Best Communities for Music Education program evaluates schools and districts based on funding, staffing of highly qualified teachers, commitment to standards, and access to music instruction.

Nationally, while the actual number of students earning the top score varies from year to year, on average, fewer than 1% of students who take the ACT earn a top score. In the U.S. high school graduating class of 2020, only 5,579 out of nearly 1.67 million students who took the ACT earned a composite score of 36.
The ACT consists of tests in English, mathematics, reading and science, each scored on a scale of 1–36. A student's composite score is the average of the four test scores. The score for ACT’s optional writing test is reported separately and is not included within the ACT composite score.
