Applied Learning

One of the best ways to engage lifelong learners is to give their education real-world context and authentic purpose.

Throughout the Park journey, children get opportunities to use their skills and understanding in ways that reflect and impact the world. Whether students are solving a real problem, engaging a real audience, or creating a product that addresses a real need, they come to understand the value of knowledge and how to apply that knowledge to a meaningful end. With applied learning, students acquire the essential skills needed to ask thoughtful questions, consider multiple perspectives, and communicate and collaborate effectively.

Here at Park, we’re preparing students to not only be successful students, but to be the innovative and intellectual leaders of the future, ready to employ the skills they’ve developed to better themselves and their communities. Following are just a few of the Park projects that put learning into action.
