Employer: Park School of Baltimore
City: Baltimore
State: Maryland (MD)
Profile:

Founded in 1912, Park is a non-sectarian, independent, coeducational day school. Eight hundred seventy five students attendfirst-year-kindergarten through grade 12.  The Park School is located on a 100-acre tract of land in a suburb just north of Baltimore, Maryland.

Students at Park—from the four-year olds in kindergarten, to the youngmen and women in the Upper School—are deeply engaged in learning. Theyare alert, curious, and eager to ask questions. They offer their opinions freely and listen and respond to the views of others. They are proud of their work and proud of their school.

Small classes (an average of 15 students) and close faculty-student relationships are integral to the Park education.

From a young age, we focus on nurturing the child's capacity forintellectual inquiry, analysis, problem solving, and independence ofthought, as well as mastery of basic skills. Debate and discussion,substantial writing and reading, questioning and experimenting arebasic modes of learning.

"It is the objective of the school to be a place where each person is respected and valued, and plain speaking, honesty, and authenticity govern all relationships. By striving to create and maintain a community of diverse perspectives and experiences, the school encourages its students to question their assumptions, develop empathy and achieve a richer understanding of the world."
