OUR MISSION

The mission of Park East is to educate all students to be critical thinkers by conducting research, solving complex problems, clearly expressing ideas through writing, providing evidence to support arguments and reading challenging texts. By completing a rigorous curriculum, our student’s graduate prepared for the challenges of college.

In our classes and through a highly structured advisory system, we help students develop individual and social responsibility by expecting the highest personal and academic standards.  Athletics, school-wide activities and traditions at Park East reflect our commitment to being an inclusive, fun-loving and respectful community. Through their educational experiences, Park East students acquire a set of values and a sense of kinship that allows them to realize and reach ambitious goals.

PRINCIPAL'S CORNER

Dear Park East Community,

Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year!  

It feels like a terrific gift to be able to be all together back “home” in our building. I feel so lucky to be starting this year as your new principal, tackling all the joys and challenges we will face as we get readjusted to in-person school together.  

The COVID year taught us so much about resilience, flexibility, compassion, and love. As we move forward to find our way in the new normal, we must constantly pay attention to taking  care of ourselves and each other. Together we will recover and heal from the traumas of last year with renewed appreciation for everything -- our beloved school traditions, all the laughs in our hallways, academic inspiration in our classes, competitive action and community with Pride sports and in our clubs, focus on civic engagement, social justice, and generally making the world a better place  -- that makes our awesome little school so special. I am excited for a great year full of reconnecting, learning, and fun. Together,  let’s make this the best year yet! 

Go Pride! Go Park East!

Much love,

Dr Suzy Ort
