Modern Language Exchanges

Opportunities to pursue language study in China and in French and Spanish-speaking countries are available to students throughout the Upper School. Students participating in exchange programs in China, France, and Spain may live with host families, and act as hosts when their exchange partners visit Park.

Old School Animal Husbandry

Park Beekeepers care for three hives of bees in order to harvest and market the honey crop. Additionally, student beekeepers give presentations to Lower School classes explaining about bees and beekeeping.

Park Faculty

Park School's faculty is our greatest asset. Our dedicated teachers create extraordinary experiences in the classroom each and every day. Park faculty members have an average experience of 20 years in teaching.

The Upper School at Park offers an intellectually challenging program that attends to students’ individual interests and talents.

Mastering the skills of critical interpretation, mathematical thinking, and scientific reasoning, Park students work in a climate of intellectual debate and discussion, and are encouraged to question and challenge. Our teachers focus on what students do with new information and how they use it to solve problems. Park defines “basic skills” to include analysis, interpretation, synthesis, and application.

The curriculum includes requirements in academic disciplines, the arts, and physical education. Wide-ranging electives, accelerated courses, and independent study allow for further growth in all subjects. In addition, our broad co-curricular offerings contribute to a balanced intellectual, artistic, and athletic Upper School experience.
