Mathematics: Math is seen as another language. We could call the subject “numeracy” in keeping with “literacy”, which may more accurately reflect our understanding of the subject. Children need practice in mathematics in order to build confidence, and they often do best when the approach to the subject allows them to grow their sense of number over time. A “spiral curriculum”, one that keeps returning to certain basic concepts while at the same time pushing outward, meets the needs of most children. We work with math standards established by the National Council of Mathematics and draw our resources from the Miquon Math Program, Bridges Mathematics Curriculum, Math Their Way and Marilyn Burns material.

Support The Max Buchsbaum Scholarship Endowment Fund
The Lake and Park School is pleased to announce the establishment of the Max Buchsbaum Scholarship Endowment Fund. Seeded by a donation made by both Max and his grandparents, Jim and Sue Swanson upon his graduation in the Class of 2017, the Endowment Fund will be dedicated to furthering accessibility of the school to a wide range of children and their families.
In addition, these funds will be accessed now in a restricted sense, for occasional immediate needs; they will be so managed as to provide for future attendees.
Your contribution to the Max Buchsbaum Scholarship Endowment Fund goes beyond your annual gift giving to The Lake and Park Fund and lays the cornerstone for longevity.
Gifts may be made in honor of a graduate, an alumni, a new student in attendance, and in general support of the School’s principals and practices. Donors will be recognized on our website and in promotional material from time to time.
