North Park is a school community with a vision that is different from other schools. We are certain that students who finish school gaining only the ability to pass a reading test and math test will not have the skills to be successful in the 21st-century economy. While reading and math consist of essential skills to be functional in our society, we estimate that these two disciplines attend to about 20 percent of the skills needed to be successful. In helping our students master of all the skills they will need as adults, North Park is intentional about allowing practice with the 4 C’s of 21st-century skills: critical thinking, collaboration, communication and creative skills.
We would love to share more about our school with you and invite you to enroll your child in our school.
