Middle School Advisory Program

The Park School of Buffalo’s Middle School Advisory Program provides academic and personal guidance and support through individual meetings and small groups that address the distinctive social and academic talents and needs of each student. The program nurtures self-advocacy, character development, service learning, social and communicative skills, and academic success. Each advisor works with students to develop respect for the diversity of the social community and the natural environment. Advisors meet regularly with their advisees to keep abreast of any academic and social concerns that may arise, monitor student progress, and communicate any concerns with parents or guardians. The advisor is the student’s advocate within the school community. The advisor is a listener, a goal-setter, and a problem-solver. The advisor serves as the home/school liaison for multiple-course homework, minor behavioral or social matters, time missed due to illness, and minor disciplinary infractions. The advisor also acts in coordination with the Head of Middle School on academic, social or disciplinary issues that are significant or ongoing.
Founded in 1912, The Park School of Buffalo has the distinction of being one of the oldest Progressive schools in the country. Park is an independent, co-educational school serving approximately 300 students enrolled in prekindergarten (3 and 4 year olds), lower school (kindergarten through grade 4), middle school (grades 5 through 8), and upper school (grades 9 through 12). Park is uniquely situated on 34 beautiful acres in Amherst, New York. The School’s campus – formerly a farm – includes a pond, marsh, gardens, and a greenhouse while being located just minutes from downtown Buffalo and easily accessible from many communities throughout Western New York. Park’s educational philosophy embraces active, student-centered learning, delivered by exceptional teachers who design and continuously update a robust curriculum. Faculty members approach each student as an individual within the context of a kind and respectful community. From the preschool years through college preparation, The Park School of Buffalo helps learners realize their own unique potentials and prepares them to be confident, successful, life-long learners.
