School Notes

  • The guiding philosophy of Park Century School is based on the conviction that learning differences are life-long challenges that affect all aspects of a child and family. All children with learning differences need educational, emotional, and social assistance. Many also must have help with attention, organization, memory, language, and perceptual-motor function. Simultaneously, their families may be overwhelmed and exhausted by psychological stress, economic burdens, and confusion about the future. These conditions require a broad spectrum of therapeutic and educational interventions.Park Century`s experience with learning differences has fostered a unique concept of the role of the school and the teacher. The school must function as a comprehensive center assuming responsibility for evaluating and meeting the ever-changing needs of a child and family.Under the guidance of the Head of School and Deans, the expanded responsibilities of the classroom teacher include serving as the central therapeutic person in each child`s school program. Accordingly, Park Century School is committed to preserve its ability to attract and retain a dedicated and highly qualified professional faculty and to ensure its continuing professional development in a manner consistent with the School`s mission and philosophy.Personal contact with consultants, ongoing in-service training, continuous administrative support and clinical supervision enable teachers to serve as classroom clinicians, parental advisors, and educational specialists. With the guidance of the Head of School, Deans, School Counselor and Professional Advisory Board, every effort is made to integrate the latest special educational research results into school programs.

My son went to Park Century School for 5 years. My gratitude to Park Century is boundless as I am quite sure PCS forever changed and made better my son's life. Not only did the school treat my child with great compassion and respect, but they also held my hand through the hard years. Years filled with worry about my son's future and his ability to learn in general. They listened and replied that my son was going to be fine, in fact, better than fine. They created a student who is tenacious and curious who embodies grit and resilience. The school, I am sure was the single best decision I have made for my son and his future. Thank you, thank you, thank you Park Century School. P.S. Nora, a wonderful 8th-grade teacher was instrumental in my child seeing himself as a student and intelligent. A gift that is with my son to this day.
