Aurora or Park Day?
We are considering Aurora and Park Day schools for our soon-to-be kindergartner. Both are “progressive” and have some similarities in teaching methods, though there are other differences, particularly in campus size and classroom composition. We are hoping that we could get some recent perspective from this group on one or both schools based on personal experience.
Our child is academically bright, but socially/emotionally a bit out of the box and can be headstrong. We are looking for a school that can accept our child as is and provide individualized attention and support to help our child’s development, as opposed to a school that prioritizes discipline and conformity. So, what is most important to us is to find a school:
- that actively fosters kindness, and
- that is more flexible and individualized, with a big enough box and is willing and able to adapt to individual kids and provide added attention/support as needed.
