    The people here are very hypocritical. I'm in the closet and would never come out it is NOT a safe environment. I can't go a day without hearing multiple racist and homophobic comments. The administration is so bent on insisting that they are so accepting and progressive that they ignore all of this and go on preaching how great Park is to gay people and minorities etc. Aside from my personal issues another thing that really irks me is how math transcripts work. I'm in the top math class where my grade's about a B. If I was in the bottom math I could slack off and get easy A's. However they don't differentiate math classes on transcripts so according to the university I want to get into so badly I'm doing worse than the kid slacking off in the low math. Overall Park is not a accepting environment no matter what they tell you.

    A fantastic school for developing critical thinking writing skills and promoting discussion. Park's curriculum focuses around broad concepts and ideas rather than rote memorization of facts.

    As my son enters his last year of lower school at Park I have watched his joy of learning and his love of school grow with each year.The teachers are outstanding and the curriculum requires their students to analyze at a superior level than many other schools. If you want your child to learn by rote methodology and be spoon fed information for memorization this may not be the School for you.Park demands from its students a dedication to and true love for learning. Bright children can learn in any environment. However it is evident to me that Park instills in its students the skills and innovative thought our children will need as our society moves forward and as traditional skill based learning is no longer sufficient for success.

    Park has wonderful and caring teachers who help students to take personal responsibility for their learning. The teachers and administration respect individuality and encourage creativity. Park has been the perfect fit for our child. They've really helped her discover her true self and grow both academically and personally. I can't recommend this school highly enough. With that said not every school is meant for every child. Your child must be willing to do her share. She will get out of it what she puts in. Park will not drag her by the hand but if your child is motivated the possibilities at Park are limitless.

    We don't learn anything! I agree with a friend of mine most kids get into good colleges because their parents are so rich! Give me a good education!

    I don't like it all that much going here. Two of my best friends are leaving next year. And around three or four are leaving in my class! I might as well be leaving (or so we have thought about) and all the time I have been here I feel like I am learning very slowly compared to my friends in other schools.

    We are thrilled with the lower school at Park! The faculty is deeply committed to the school's philosophy and the children are motivated and engaged in learning.

    It's true Park will get you into a good college even if you're not that smart. I sacrificed that opportunity for happiness. It is like living in a bubble with no connection to anyone outside of your small community. It is not a diverse school either. I was not happy there but that's just my opinion. Many people like it.

    Park School has the most acedemically qualifed faculty in Baltimore. The academic program has been thought out in ways you cannot even begin to imagine. The entire faculty is engaged in an organized effort to help each individual student's growth. The diverse college placements at the best schools demonstrates that the Park is successful in meeting the varied intersts of each child. My child LOVES this school. This is a place where your child will learn to think grow and achieve at their highest level. I recently interviewed a person for a law position. They went to a prominent law school. They had a masters degree from an Ivy league school. They had a Bachelors degree from one of the best private colleges in the country. I hired them because they went to Park.

    The best school in Baltimore! Park provides an education focused on the needs of each child. Creativity thinking and questioning are valued. Students learn by doing and projects are the most common form of assessment. My child loves evry day at Park School.

    Park provides a nurturing as well as challenging environment in which students are deeply engaged and invested in their work. The faculty is without a doubt the most experienced and intellectually vibrant in Baltimore. Diversity (racial socio-economic religious) is a priority. College admissions are awesome but the real benefit comes on a daily basis as students and faculty create a rich and engaging experience day in and day out. We have three children at the school each quite different from their siblings and each thriving at the school.
