The Park School Of Buffalo Photo #1 - The student-run greenhouse is a wonderful opportunity for students to learn where their food comes from and more about plant life.
  • The Park School engages the whole student in a diverse and creative community that nurtures the joy and responsibility of active learning in all, from our youngest learners to our graduates, who leave with the skills essential to college success and the confidence to serve and lead.
  • Park provides a rigorous academic program in an educational climate that emphasizes empathy, compassion, social awareness, and a sense of belonging to a tightly- knit, multi-age community.
  • All Park graduates are accepted to college.  With an 8:1 student to teacher ratio, each student has ample opportunity to learn through experience with personal attention from dedicated teachers.
  • Whether on a playing field or stage, in an art studio or science lab, the learning environment fostered at Park frees students from the constraints of competition and encourages them to stretch themselves.
  • In all areas, students are encouraged to ask questions and explore their world in an open and supportive environment.

Even tho there are several highly rated schools in our neighborhood (public and private), we send our kids to Park because the school's approach to education combines real academic challenge and independent learning with other life skills that we value, such as kindness, responsibility, and the joy of community. My kids are thriving.

Park is a wonderful school. We just moved to Buffalo and are so pleased that we were introduced to Park School. It is a beautiful campus with 3 fields, pond, marsh, and gardens. The faculty care about the success of students and go the extra mile. We have 2 kids who are academically challenged, involved in athletics and the arts, and LOVE coming to school. Park is more than a school, it is a true community that welcomes everyone.
