What is Curriculum?

Curriculum is generally understood to be the selection of content we teach.  It is actually, however, much more complex than this.  At The Park School, our lens on curriculum pushes us to examine not only what we want our students to learn and be able to do, but also why they should learn it, how we will determine their success and through which effective methods we will get them there.

Curriculum at Park is collaboratively designed, embracing the idea that students here are not the responsibility of one sole teacher, but the responsibility of all teachers.  We rely on one another to share ideas, challenge thinking, learn new methods and offer support.  Teachers, specialists, coaches and administrators focus on making decisions together to best meet the many varied needs of our student body.  This environment of collaboration in pursuit of an excellent educational experience is an invigorating one that I feel grateful to be a part of each and every day!
