Parkway North High School is a public high school in Creve Coeur, Missouri that is part of the Parkway School District.

Demographics[edit]

The student body is about 51 percent White and 31 percent Black and Asian with 9 percent.[2]

Building architecture[edit]

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.

Activities[edit]

For the 2019–2020 school year, the school offered 27 activities approved by the Missouri State High School Activities Association (MSHSAA): baseball, boys and girls basketball, cheerleading, boys and girls cross country, dance team, football, boys and girls golf, girls lacrosse, music activities, scholar bowl, boys and girls soccer, softball, speech and debate, boys and girls swimming and diving, boys and girls tennis, boys and girls track and field, boys and girls volleyball, water polo, and wrestling.[3]
