Park Day School is a progressive K-8 co-ed school located in Oakland, California. Classes, lessons, and experiences at Park Day emphasize creativity, exploration, and discovery. We value each student’s ability to take risks, think critically, build lifelong friendships, and contribute to the world around them.
At Park Day School we educate students about social justice and help them understand their power to make positive change. Through the selection of literature, the study of history, and the exploration of scientific discoveries, the voices of underrepresented people are brought to life in our classrooms. Through this exposure, Park Day students develop compassion, a sense of fairness, a commitment to activism, and global awareness.
Our graduates are community members who approach challenges from multiple perspectives and have the confidence to question, create and contribute when they venture into the world. While at school, students thrive both in and out of the classroom, approaching a variety of academic challenges as designers, makers and analytic thinkers. They study and grow in our gardens, playground, sports field, neighborhood, and the wider Bay Area– taking field trips, and benefitting from an array of community partnerships.
