Park Day School's Full Profile



Park Day School says

Park Day School is a diverse, independent K-8 school with a 30 year history of progressive education. We believe a successful learner is one who is confident, caring, and creative. We believe success is measured by a students ability to define his or her place in the world, guided by intellectual skills and a social perspective. Park Day seeks to inspire a passion for learning through a progressive approach to education that values intellectual pursuit and critical thinking, creative expression, self-discovery and a commitment to social justice. Park Day School adheres to a progressive educational philosophy. Over a century of professional practice and research shape the progressive view that each child learns not by passively consuming knowledge, but by actively constructing his or her own understanding of material based on prior knowledge, skills, and experience. In progressive education, the child plays a more active role in his or her own learning, so teachers focus as much on the characteristics of each learner as they do on the quality of academic content.



Private schools, including parochial and boarding, are funded through tuition and fees. The cost varies from school to school, but most families pay tuition to attend them. Many private schools offer financial aid or discounts, so it's worthwhile to ask about these options.
