We have gone to Park Tudor since 4th grade. My child has had an amazing education at Park Tudor. In my opinion, there is no better education. The faculty and staff are amazing and truly care. It really is a community. Beautiful campus, great people and top-notch education. I am so grateful for this school.
I had a shadow day at this school and I liked it. The children were not that welcoming, but the academic standard was good. The food was also good. Many people say that most people who attend this school are snobbish, this is not true.
Hard to believe there is a better school anywhere. As an alumni, I recently enrolled my son in the Senior Kindergarten and had my expectations surprisingly exceeded. The personal involvement in the staff and older student body is very impressive. The teachers go above and beyond to ensure every student is keeping up with the materials presented in class. From JK-12, the school is a true community and spirit is felt by all. With this said, I will share with you the biggest draw backs, which include: limited enrollment, very expensive, and sheltered environment. When stating "sheltered environment," this can be viewed as both a positive and negative. On the good side, it virtually guarantees that your children will be in a safe, secure learning environment. The down side to this is, you are in a bubble of peace and harmony, which is not the "real world," where problems do exist. From JK onward, everyone knows that they will graduate high school and college. Some children may feel a bit slighted, if they do not come from affluent families, since many of their peers do. However, if you want the best educational experience for your children and you can get in/afford..go!!!!
PT is great. My son started in SK and he is now a senior. The academics are fantastic, the faculty and staff are very caring and the grounds and facilities are impeccable. If there was any shortcoming I would have to say that the school is very traditional and does not welcome alternative lifestyles. Individual teachers are very encouraging but as a whole the school does not support the free-thinking, non-mainstream student.
Best high school in Indiana, hands-down. SAT Scores, college placement (my 8 best friends and myself all ended up at top ten colleges), AP scores, good athletics, awesome social life, great fine arts dept., and perhaps most importantly, the best teachers. Few schools can offer AP Art History teachers who actually go on archeological digs during their summers, or have AP World teachers who take students with them to Egypt and Jordan and China, or Spanish teachers that take students to nearby elementary schools to teach Hispanic immigrants English while improving our own Spanish skills. If you are willing to work hard and be challenged, go to Park Tudor.
