Park City: A Haven For Education
Park City is well known for their high quality school district. Better schools is one of many reasons people choose this area for living; their children benefit from smaller class sizes, highly rated curriculum, and excellent teachers and administration.
Let’s take a look at some of the schools available in Park City, Utah for the K-12 crowd.
What makes these schools unique compared to private institutions in other areas is their small size. There are as little as 100 students or less per school, and the class sizes are small enough that each student is given personal attention and an education based on their learning needs.
- Jeremy Ranch School – Grades K-5
- Park City High School – Grades 10-12
- Ecker Hill Middle School – Grades 6-7
- Trailside School – Grades K-5
- Treasure Mountain Junior High School – Grades 8-9
- Parleys Park School – Grades K-5
- McPolin School – Grades PK-5
- Park City Learning Center – Grades 9-12
One thing you may notice about these schools is that Park City’s district follows by a more traditional system for grades than the rest of the state. Middle school is for grades 6 and 7, rather than splitting 6th into elementary, and 7th into a middle school up to grade 9. This better separates students based on age, and helps to prepare them with smaller class sizes, within a more appropriate setting.
- Weilenmann School Of Discovery – Grades K-8
There is another option, which is the local charter school. With around 550 students every year, it is a very full institution with children from kindergarten age clear to 8th grade. This might not be ideal for all students, but it provides an option for parents looking for a private school level education that still follows a monitored curriculum.
