Message from the Principal

Dear families,

Park Side School is now an authorized International Baccalaureate (IB) School. As a Kindergarten through Fourth Grade school, we offer the Primary Years Program (PYP), an inquiry based instructional program that develops critical and higher-order thinking skills. As an IB World School we are part of a world-wide network of schools providing a 21st Century education to its students. The aim of the PYP is to engender “international-mindedness” in its students so that they leave here with an understanding of the global impact their actions and values can and do have on the planet we all share. To learn more about IB, please visit the website at

In addition to the IB Program, Park Side provides a social/emotional curriculum through Tool Box and we incorporate the Peaceful Playground into our outdoor recess and recreation time. The school uses the B.E.S.T. (Building Effective Schools Together) as its basis for developing positive behavioral values where all students are encouraged to be safe, responsible and respectful.

We invite you come visit anytime. Our students and teachers welcome you. Please stop by the office during regular school hours, or, if there is something in particular you would like to see, give us a call at 707-829-7400.
