Mission

The mission of Park Avenue School is to provide a positive and safe learning environment where all students acquire the academic knowledge and skills to ensure a future of achievement and to instill the core values of responsibility, respect, empathy and integrity.

Academics

The students are provided with instruction that address the district and state goals for each curricular area. Emphasis is placed on a literature-based, differentiated instructional approach to ELA and the use of manipulatives & problem solving to enhance the Math & Science programs. The teaching of Science through FOSS is a process that involves experimentation, imagination and critical thinking. Computer technology is an essential tool; Smartboards, iPads & Chromebooks support instruction.

Clubs

Clubs: Student Council, Sisterhood, Coding, Girls That Code, Robotics, Dance, Instrumental Music, Chorus, Bridge, National Junior Honor Society, Afterschool Academy, Math 180 and ESL Support Rosetta Stone.

Programs

Our afterschool programs offer extensive opportunities for students to develop their talents, build bonds with positive role models and improve academic performance. This is a result of the 21st Century Afterschool Learning Grant which enables us to run the program for Grades 4-7 from 3-6pm daily.

Teachers

Professional learning for staff occurred both as job embedded and district driven workshops. Teachers participated in a school PLC around data driven instruction and examined the various types of assessments. Several staff members were also enrolled in Graduate School pursuing Master's Degrees in a variety of Educational Fields.

Supports

English Language Learners - In-Class Support and Newcomers. Student with disabilities - Partnership with Theatre Development Fund, Autism Friendly Performance, Parent Support Group and Empower U.

Parents

We value strong home school partnerships. Our collaborative relationships allow students to meet their full potential. Park Avenue's Parent Teacher Organization serves as a link to our surrounding community, as well as school initiated programs: Career Day, Celebrity Read, Latino Literacy Night, Family Math/Literacy, Park Avenue School Newsletter, telephone, phone blasts and email communications, and various school assemblies and programs presented by students and faculty.
