Getting to know Park Better
In choosing the right school community for your child, many factors come to play, yet at the heart of the decision is this: will my child thrive here? Will they be happy? Will they be nurtured and supported both academically and in social-emotional learning so they grow as confident, engaged scholars?
Please explore these resources that will help you connect with the Park experience.

Getting to know Park
Thank you for your interest in The Park School! We look forward to getting to know you, and to helping you get to know Park.
In a normal year, we are proud to invite prospective students and families to campus where you can see for yourself the joyful learning that happens every day at all grade levels. You would hear the laughter and excitement bubbling from classrooms as students feed their curiosity and collaborate in discovery. You would meet fellow parents for whom Park becomes a center of family life. And you would see our wonderful, creative faculty doing what they do so well, engaging young learners as they grow to become confident scholars.
Because we can’t welcome you to campus this year, we’re doing the next best thing: bringing the voices of Park to you, virtually.
Whether you attended one of Park’s Virtual Open Houses this fall, or are just now launching your exploration, we hope you will delve into the resources provided here, and be sure to reach out if you have any questions. Better yet, log into your Ravenna account, select Park, and schedule a virtual interview with our admission team.
