Computer Science

The Park School is committed to providing students with opportunities to experience all aspects of computer science and technology. Courses in the field of computer science are designed to teach engineering and design principles, while exposing students to the latest technology in hardware and software. 

Beyond computer science, a growing number of classes offered in the arts, math, science, and English departments make use of Park’s extensive technology and take place in computer and science labs, visual art and music rooms, individual classrooms, and the library. 

Special interests in computer science are handled through projects and independent study.
