    While Park definitely has its shortcomings, I am still thankful for the opportunity to have attended such a great school. The teachers here are phenomenal and most people, whether they are students, faculty, or staff are generally very friendly. The majority of classes take on an open discussion format, which serves to provide more opinions on the subject being taught. The only negative thing I have to say about teachers at Park is that they tend to be very lenient when it comes to late work, missing assignments, etc.

    As for athletics, I found that while Park is certainly nowhere close to being an "athlete factory", the majority of of the teams are competitive in the MIAA and IAAM "B" conferences. In addition, the overall athletics at are well run and the majority of coaches are very good. Park also makes it easy for athletes to pick up and learn sports that they have not played in the past.
    Park is a great place for curious individuals. With its progressive style of learning, most classrooms, particularly those of the humanities, are set up to allow ease of engagement between students. Another great aspect is the community. Teachers genuinely care for their students and want their students to succeed.
