Parke House Academy Mission Statement
The mission of The Parke House Academy is to provide an accelerated educational program that empowers each student to reach his or her highest social and academic potential.
ENGAGING LEARNING FACILITIES
Our state-of-the-art campus consists of two main academic buildings, art and music studios, two libraries, two computer labs, a Spanish classroom, a full-size regulation gymnasium, multiple playgrounds, and shady picnic areas all spread out over two acres of lovely grounds in Winter Park, Florida.
LOVING AND DEDICATED FACULTY
Our instructional staff assemble a structured learning environment while promoting inquiry and encouraging “freedom within limits.” Along with administration, teachers share the common goal of establishing a strong academic curriculum in a nurturing environment where young minds can explore and grow.
The environment at Parke House is conducive to effective teaching and learning due to our low student-teacher ratio, dedicated teachers, individualized instruction, and progressive curriculum.
LEARNING WITH TECHNOLOGY
Parke House’s media curriculum ensures that every student is technologically literate and able to use, manage, and understand technology and its value in our global society. Students in both Upper and Lower Divisions have access to computer labs and instruction in mouse skills, keyboarding, online citizenship, internet research, and word processing. In addition, teachers and students utilize iPads and Apple TVs in the library and classrooms to enhance instruction across the curriculum.
Parke House Academy values the structured learning approach. We boost high levels of student achievement by providing a curriculum that exhibits elevated academic standards grounded in a strong foundation of reading, writing, and mathematics.
All of our students participate in the study of Spanish language, consisting of vocabulary and cultural studies. The study of a foreign language is extremely beneficial to a child’s intellectual growth. The knowledge acquired while studying another culture will encourage our students to learn more about the world.
Our music program embraces exposure to a wide variety of composers and music including Classical, Jazz, Rock, Blues, and other genres. The incorporation of technology, art, and history is used to enhance our music education program. Our students participate in a yearly school-wide musical and drama production to showcase their many talents.
Parke House Academy’s Art Room is brimming with color, creativity, and artistic expression while engaging both the academic left brain and creative right brain thinkers. The visual arts program educates students in a variety of genres including drawing, painting, printmaking, and sculpture. Many of our students have had their artwork placed in local and national competitions and displayed in local establishments in Central Florida.
THINKING OUT OF THE BOX
The Thinking outside of the Box (TOB) program has been a huge success since its inception in 2011. Our enrichment program allows Upper Division students from Second through Fifth grade the opportunity to partake in a variety of of special elective courses each quarter. Each lab is individually designed and implemented by our instructors based on their unique talents and interest beyond the core curriculum. TOB labs meet two days per week and and provide students with a plethora of diverse experiences.
Students are admitted based on results of an evaluation, observation, and current enrollment levels. Consideration of the needs of the individual student and the academy’s ability to meet those needs becomes an aspect of every admission decision.
Due to of our low pupil-teacher ratio, and the unique “home-like” environment, enrollment is limited. A waiting pool is maintained in the event of a full enrollment. Admittance into Parke House Academy’s Lower Division does not guarantee admittance into Upper Division.
