The Board of Visitors

The Park School Board of Visitors acts as a sounding board for current programs, continuing traditions, and new ideas. This venture offers an opportunity for alumni and friends of the School to continue or reinvigorate their involvement at Park. The Board of Visitors meets on campus two times per year. Through classroom visits and interactive work sessions, this group gives input on important topics at the School. If you would like additional information on the Board of Visitors, please contact Carolyn Hoyt Stevens '81, Director of Development, at 716-839-1243 x104 or

Founded in 1912, The Park School of Buffalo has the distinction of being one 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.
