With 1,260 students, Parkview Baptist School is the largest private school in Louisiana. The school began with students from kindergarten to sixth grade in 1981, adding grades 7-12 in 1983. PBS is now divided into three administrative units: Parkview Baptist Elementary School (K-4, also known as "PBS kids"), Parkview Baptist Middle School (5-8), and Parkview Baptist High School (9-12). Grade 5 was moved to be part of the middle school in fall 2008.
Parkview is governed by a school board that consists of appointed members from the school, church, and community.
Parkview Baptist School is certified by the Louisiana State Board of Elementary and Secondary Education as an approved K-12 education program. PBS is also accredited with the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS). It is one of only 345 other independent schools in 11 states having this dual accreditation. The school has also been approved to receive foreign students by the United States Immigration and Naturalization Services.
