Park Street School Photo #2 - Park Street School second graders enjoy their Greek gods and goddesses unit, sharing with classmates fun facts about the god or goddess each was assigned, finishing with a story. Each costume and prop give important clues to the role of each god. Which god or goddess would you have liked to be?
Park Street School Photo #3 - Grade 6A students dissect a mollusk, a blue mussel, before heading out to test the temperature and the salinity of their sample tidal pool area on their rocky intertidal field study at Northeastern University’s Marine Science Center in Nahant.
Park Street School Photo #4 - Toddler friends get messy with Miss Diane sensory painting with chocolate sauce while down on The Farm (during our Farm unit). We like getting mucky, pretending to be pigs in the mud!
Park Street School Photo #5 - In our fabulous gym, first grade students traverse Park Street School’s climbing wall, developing coordination, muscle tone and upper body strength.
Park Street School Photo #6 - Park Street School (PSS) fourth grade faculty Queen Owens and Queen Schooley give instructions to their squires before the infamous Medieval Tournament in the Boston Common. Competing in the tournament is one of the tasks the fourth grade squires need to complete before the Queens’ knighting ceremony. All the squires will now and forever be Park Street School Grade 4 Knights!
Park Street School Photo #7 - March Madness takes over Park Street School as girls and boys from Grades 4-6 enjoy five weeks of dribbling, basket drills and pounding the court!
Park Street School Photo #8 - By playing “Musical Letters” to different tunes, Pre-K students build upper and lower case letter identification. We also practice how to be good sports by “sitting out” when we can’t find a letter on which to stand. Movement helps us learn!
Park Street School Photo #9 - “Cup on pup!” Kindergarten students read to their classmates, practicing reading phrases from Dr. Suess books as they celebrated Dr. Suess’ birthday on March 2! Oh, the things we will learn!

I could not be happier with our decision to send our children to Park Street. They have had a wonderful experience for the last 9 years. The teachers are warm and loving. The administration works hard at getting to know the families and does a great job building community. My children have made lifelong friendships and so have my husband and I. The children are truly excited to go to school every day.

My children have been at Park Street School since they were both two years old. They are now going into fourth and second grade. They are both thriving at Park Street due to the amazing teachers and curriculum. Not only are they doing well academically, but also socially and emotionally as well. They have met wonderful friends and truly feel loved and supported by the entire staff every day they walk into school.
