Introducing the Park Academy Vlog! A series of mini-videos that will feature topics relevant to the latest Park Academy Blog posts. Our first video comes from Sandy Nemer, 5th grade teacher at Park Academy. Sandy answers the question, “What is Whole Language” with a brief background and definition, and why Park Academy uses an Orton Gillingham approach instead.
"Having teachers and staff that actually cared about me and challenged me to set and achieve goals made all the difference. I was lost, they helped me find my real self. "

"Frequently referring families to Park Academy, I count on Park's remarkably ignited, highly qualified staff for positive personalized approaches to assessing and re-assessing each student's strengths and challenges followed by innovative educational techniques drawn from many disciplines."

"As soon as Malachi started at Park we began to see positive changes in him, his confidence began to grow. For the first time, he actually like going to school. His academic and reading performance greatly improved after just one year. Park helped him recognize his potential by highlighting his strengths and encouraging him to keep trying. "
