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.
