The Park School of Buffalo is our region’s premiere Progressive School for students in PreKindergarten through Grade 12. Here’s what that means in plain language.
Park is Individually Focused - Progressive Education calls for schools to pay attention to who your child is as a unique, individual learner. We believe that our students are best served when we know how they learn, and approach their education accordingly.
Park is Experiential - Progressive Schools believe that experience is the best teacher, and that learning is strongest when we leave room for making mistakes, and for the incredible growth that follows them. Park believes in Learning by Doing.
Park is a Community - Progressive Educators know that students value their schooling more when they feel a responsibility to it. Park’s intentional, universal focus on kindness and strong community means that our students care about themselves, their places in our community, and each other.
How this impacts students… Park’s motto is Veritas et Gaudium - Truth and Joy. More than century of experience shows us that Park students leave us for college and the wider world as intellectually curious, self-confident, resilient, good citizens. They engage the world around them, knowing who they are and how they can contribute to the greater good. Park students are true Pioneers!
