Our School

Parkway Elementary school is part of the Paramus Public School District. We are located in the Borough of Paramus in Bergen County, New Jersey. Prior to becoming a shopping mecca, Paramus was a farming community. The first school was built in 1726 and educated children of all backgrounds in the area. Today, we focus on educating the children of our community in a bright, playful, and caring environment.
