We have been in Park's Lower School for several years and have been very happy. Park's progressive approach to education fosters kids who are interested in learning. They learn the basics I would expect on core subjects, and this is supplemented with deeper instruction in areas where they are interested. My kids are very different from each other (with different strengths and interests, one very artistic, the other more traditional science/math interests) and they both thrive. Both my kids want to go to school every day, and are disappointed when it is closed. Park School students learn how to take tests and have excellent outcomes. Last year, they had 22 National Merit semifinalists, which I understood to be among the highest of any coed independent school in MD. The list of colleges they attend is impressive. In addition, graduates seem to handle themselves with a maturity that bodes well for preparedness for life after college. Overall, we have been pleased wtih Park, the community, the teachers, and the learning environment.

The only way private schools can build their financial security is through gifts. Major gifts offer proof of how deeply many donors feel about their private schools. Their munificence is a wonderful example to others.
