Only At Park Maitland

We understand that parents have many choices for their child’s education. From other prestigious local private schools to top-notch area public schools, the competition is fierce. What makes families choose Park Maitland and stay until their child graduates? The fact that so many great things can be found #OnlyAtParkMaitland. Let us tell you more.

Learning Begins in Wonder

Since opening in 1968, Park Maitland has evolved to adapt to ever-changing social and academic standards. But one thing has remained the same – learning has always begun in wonder. Whether it be our expansive and inclusive arts curriculum or adopting technology and innovation in the iHub which holds our library, science labs, and Maker Space, Park Maitland is dedicated to sparking passion within each of our students. Tradition is important to us, so we want to make sure every student feels like they are a part of something bigger than themselves. That all begins with discovering their interests and fostering curiosity to help them grow and keep the legacy of Park Maitland alive.

Our Special Projects
Fifth Grade Wax Museum
Wonder what it’s like to see living historical legends all under one roof? Our Wax Museum is just the place. Our Fifth Graders dress as their chosen historical figure and give a 5-8 minute speech for their families and the whole school. This project involves extensive research and creativity to help bring to life the stories of our world’s greatest leaders. Not only is this an educational experience for our whole school, but also a chance to boast our love for performing arts.
First Grade Festival of Nations
From an early age, our students learn about the diversity of the world and the importance of unity. First Grade students hold a Festival of Nations to honor the diversity that is the glue of our school. As a whole, Park Maitland is proud of the different beliefs, backgrounds, and lifestyles that make up our community. This day of music and learning empowers not only First Grade, but all the students that get to see the display of inclusivity.
Fifth Grade Food Truck
Ever wonder what it’s like to start your own business? Well, our fifth graders sure do! The annual Food Truck project is an entrepreneurship cross curricular where fifth graders come up with a product to sell from their “food truck” and create a full business plan. The business plan entails not only conceptualizing what they would do, but writing and creating commercials, doing basic accounting, and presenting their Food Truck business in front of real successful local business owners.
Leadership in Community Service
100% of Park Maitland students participate in community service. In addition, we also have many ambitious students that strive to lead in service and help to not only organize service learning projects, but continuously propose new ways to help the community. Our Park Maitland Ambassadors have led service projects benefiting Toys for Tots, A Grateful Mind Food Drive, and the Honored Elders Program. They raise money, collect goods, and provide time to lift up others.
Outside Adventures

Through what we call “Learning Without Walls,” students get to venture far and wide to not only apply their knowledge from their curriculum, but make connections with individuals in communities unknown to them. These trips break away from the confines of a classroom and provide physical examples and tools to understand academic concepts as well as show how much there is to see in the world. Some of the Middle School Learning Without Walls adventures have included our fifth grade history trip to Colonial Williamsburg, our seventh grade trip to New York City where students can see two Broadway performances, and Washington D.C. for the sixth grade. Our fourth graders have visited St. Augustine, the oldest city in the U.S., and the second graders visited Gatorland to learn about natural habitats.
