“There are a lot of things to love about Lake and Park: the time spent outside, teacher-to-student ratio, progressive philosophy, quality teachers, the small handcrafted feel, the value placed on play… these are some of the reasons why we chose the school. But what’s less talked about is the uncommon courageous spirit of the teachers and curriculum. There is an undying confidence that our kids will find inspiration no matter how complex the topic.
Culturally, many schools have evolved to become more careful, standardized, planned and scaled. Lake and Park goes against that grain. That’s not an easy thing to do, especially the way Lake and Park does it. Simply put, going against the grain requires extra funding. The Lake and Park Fund allows our teachers to approach topics with the depth and bravery they deserve. On any given subject, somehow the school crams in: field studies, a science fair, expert lectures, homemade videos, poetry, visual arts, music, sometimes even a celebratory feast, all about the same topic.
I hope we all find inspiration to give in our own special way.”
