Grades: K - 8 | 306 students
Park Day School is a diverse, independent K-8 school with a 40-year history of progressive education.
We believe a successful learner is one who is confident, compassionate, and creative.
We believe success is measured by a studentâ€™s ability to define his or her place in the world, guided by intellectual skills and a social perspective.
Park Day inspires a passion for learning through a progressive approach to education that values intellectual pursuit and critical thinking, creative expression, self-discovery and a commitment to social justice.
Each child learns not by passively consuming knowledge, but by actively constructing his or her own understanding of material based on prior knowledge, skills, and experience.
