ABOUT THE UPPER SCHOOL

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.  

“Being a leader is less about everyone listening to you, and more about being the collective voice of everyone around you.”

Park students are inquisitive, show and earn respect, and are mature beyond their years.
