Parkhurst Is Plum

Aubrey Conlon '26

We are all well aware of the amazing options our school offers. Every day introduces a new lunch option for the students to enjoy, in addition to the usual delicious snacks such as cookies and chips. The question is, which lunch items are the best?

To start, every week, the Academy offers a variety of foods that students love. One day, the selection might include chicken nuggets, and another day might be quesadillas. The different kinds of daily food are terrific for students who want a change! Some of the best options include pizza, burgers and fries, chicken nuggets, chicken fingers, and quesadillas. The food is so popular that sometimes it runs out! Katie Walker, a 9th grader, says, “the variety of food that AOSE has always left me excited for lunch!” Another student, Julia Calderero, proclaimed her love for “the amazing chicken nuggets” (because they’re just that good). All of the students love the Parkhurst lunch items, but what else is there? Well, there is prepackaged food, such as salads, sandwiches, and wraps. There are also bagels, pasta salads, parfaits, and fresh fruits too! 

Now, about the snacks. AOSE offers a variety of snack foods, like cookies, chips, candy, muffins, and a variety of soft drinks. Academy students especially enjoy the homemade cookies that our school offers. The M&M ones are a big hit, but other flavors include chocolate chip, double chocolate, and red velvet. Not only that, but students love the different sodas our school offers, such as the Peace Teas and Diet Coca-Cola. Oftentimes, these drinks can be scarce because of how popular they are! 

Overall, the students at the Academy love what the cafeteria has to offer. We can’t wait to see if any new options will be available this year and how the students will like them!
