Profile of Parley’s Park Elementary
Parley’s Park Elementary School (PPES) is located in the Silver Springs area of Park City, Utah. We are a school that serves around 600 students in grades Preschool through 5th grade. Parley’s is a school full of diversity. We are also a targeted Title I school with over almost 30% of our students qualifying for free or reduced lunch assistance.
PPES offers a comprehensive educational program that concentrates on educating the whole child. We believe that students should be able to use their heads, their hands, and their hearts each and every day at school. This is done in a variety of ways. One way is that students engage in deep, integrated learning experiences in English Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies. About half of our students learn these core subjects in both English and Spanish in the Dual Language Immersion Program. Another way is that our students experience art, music, coding, physical education, dance, and STEM-integrated activities in our Makerspace and in our outdoor greenhouse every day. Currently we have about 40 teachers, 10 academic coaches and interventionists, and 10 educational support personnel. We are also proud to have a full-time nurse, school counselor, behavioral interventionist and a 50%-time social worker available to all students, ensuring their physical, social, and emotional wellness is an equal priority to their academic success.
Parley’s Park has several partners who help provide this incredible educational experience, including the Park City Education Foundation, EATS Park City, and the Parley’s Park PTA. Our parents are very supportive of our school and make PPES a true community school.
