Park Elementary


Park Elementary School serves 900 students in second through fifth grade. Our purpose is to meet the needs of the whole child with an emphasis on basic academic skills. We are committed to providing as many hands-on learning experiences as possible in all academic areas. We want our students to know, understand, and apply what we teach.  We provide instruction and opportunities in all academic areas.  As an elementary school, our focus is on language arts and mathematics.
