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.
