More Information

Literature and History

From the foundations of pre-literacy and phonics in the early grades, our students grow into lovers of literature. Amazing worlds and civilizations open up to students in all grades as they read exceptional children’s literature. Hand-in-hand with our Core Knowledge curriculum with history as its centerpiece, children’s literature inspires the imagination, bringing different time periods and cultures to life along with music, drama, art and Bible, beginning at the Preschool.

Technology

We are wired for technology! Keeping it age-appropriate across the campuses, students are introduced to technology, and instructed in its usage as they advance in age. Technology tools are used and taught more formally in Grades 3-6 with a 1:1 iPad correspondence, Office365 instruction, keyboarding, digital ethics and e-mail etiquette taught. By Grade 6, our students have been encouraged to extend their character education to develop good digital citizenship.

Academic Support and Enrichment

Students’ learning is supported and enriched in the classroom, by specialists including a reading specialist, literacy instructor, and math enrichment faculty, as well as by consultants and student services including an occupational therapist and speech therapist.

Art, Music, Drama

Art, music, drama are integrated into units as well as enjoyed as specific classes in order for students to make connections and bring history, literature, and even Science to life. Confidence to express themselves through dramatic, visual or musical art grows and often exudes in our students! Children sing, learn the mechanics of music, become acquainted with styles of music and are introduced to instruments in Music class. Our Fine Arts program sees students creating art that exceeds their years! Performing “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” in fifth grade, or “Diary of Anne Frank” in sixth grade are just two highlights of our students’ time at Park Street School.

“Out of Chair” Learning

Active learning – sharing information through song, in a game, through a STEM activity, creating an iMovie or in a tableau – helps everything connect more deeply. We’re often “out-of-the-chair” at Park Street School, building and creating, fostering collaboration and creativity.
