Our school was founded over one hundred years ago in response to limited choices for independent school education. From the start, this was to be a school open to many — with a varied student body that challenged the common practices of the time. Just as important today, the school remains committed to sustaining a diverse environment where multiple perspectives are heard and considered. The school’s core values, rooted in the progressive educational philosophy of John Dewey, sustain an unshakable belief in children’s capacity to enjoy learning, to act rationally, and to grow when inspired by highly qualified, caring teachers. Our entire approach to education leads to a natural outcome of excellence.
International students are embraced and welcomed into the Park community. While every effort is made to support our international students both inside and outside of the classroom, the school does not offer ESL classes. International students participate in all of our dynamic and engaging classrooms as well as in co-curricular activities.
Park does not offer boarding facilities. International students either live with their own families, or with host families.
The application deadline for international students is January 1, 2019. Applications received by this deadline will receive an admission decision on February 22, 2019. Applications received after January 1 will be accepted; however, we will provide admission decisions on a rolling, case-by-case basis after February 22.
We look forward to getting to know you and your family, and to sharing what makes Park a unique learning environment. Students and families should complete the following steps to apply. (Note: a Skype interview or school visit is scheduled only after the full payment fee is received and International Student Pre-Application Form has been submitted.)
