Philosophy

Park Maitland School provides a complete educational experience with an emphasis on academic, social, emotional and physical development for students in preschool through sixth grade.  Our whole child education is challenging, enlightening, and enriching.  In an ever-changing world, our curriculum offers relevancy and balances character with academic excellence.

The intent of Park Maitland School is to provide a challenging course of study with support for personal growth. Working closely with families, we encourage children to build self-worth and an understanding of social responsibility. We believe that school is a place that should inspire responsibility for one’s own education by promoting self-discipline, intellectual curiosity, and a life-long love of learning.
