  • The mission of a school is the articulation of its purposes and objectives against which all of its activities are measured. The statement of Park's mission is also intended to embody the shared values of the community to which all subscribe. The cornerstone of Park's program is academic excellence combining both high standards of scholarship and the encouragement of each child to develop to his or her greatest potential. The school provides a nurturing environment in which children can develop curiosity, express creativity, appreciate the value of hard work and discipline, and experience the joy of learning. Park's faculty encourages individual students to strive for intellectual, physical and moral growth, and to become contributing members of the community.
