My son entered Park School in the first grade. The individual atttention he received within the small class size was immeasurable.

This was a progressive school with a caring community at one time. It has gone down hill year after year with constant administrative changes.

I've sent two sons to the only progressive school in Western New York--they were both well-served by this wonderful school. My older son was inspired to go into teaching after graduating from Park. He went on to get a master's degree in early childhood education, and now is head teacher for 3 and 4-year-olds ...  Read more

The learning is fun, they are required to think and be creative, and the community is a happy and accepting place. As a result, my children are enthusiastic about learning and feel confident ...  Read more
