Park School of Baltimore Photo #2 - Kindergarten students take nature walks along the decks overlooking the pond, investigating wildlife, while Middle Schoolers eat lunch together, and Upper Schoolers take a break outside between classes.
Park School of Baltimore Photo #3 - Park`s academic buildings are built around the pond. Science classes perform experiments in the pond; community members monitor the eggs, hatching, and growth of resident goslings each spring; and students canoe on the water during PE classes.
Park School of Baltimore Photo #4 - Students of all ages, faculty, and staff enter the school together through the main entrance, holding the doors for each other as they file into the central lobby and move towards common spaces, classrooms, or offices.
Park School of Baltimore Photo #5 - Kelly Field - our premier Astroturf - is lined for field hockey, lacrosse, and soccer competition (with the soccer field scaled at collegiate dimensions).

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.

If you live outside the United States, choosing an American private school can be a confusing process. Here is an overview of the process.
Many people thought vouchers would never amount to much. Not only have they amounted to a great deal more than anybody could have thought, but vouchers have encouraged several more education choices to flourish.
Now that school has safely reopened, what can we parents do to support and encourage the schools we care about so much?
