What Makes a Park Scholar?
Park Scholars earn excellent grades in the most challenging courses available. They are intellectually curious students who think critically and seek learning experiences outside the classroom.
Park Scholars demonstrate leadership, either in formal roles such as team captain or student body president, or informally by excelling in competitive or creative endeavors. They listen well, lead by example, take risks, and champion original ideas.
Park Scholars dedicate themselves to making a positive difference in the lives of others. They find public service personally rewarding and they participate in service activities on a regular basis.
Park Scholars set positive examples for others and have the courage to do what is right, even when they are in the minority. They demonstrate the highest levels of integrity, honesty, and conscientiousness.
The Class of 2019 partnered with the Town of Clayton and the Clayton Community Recreational Foundation while they work to build Harmony Playground, an inclusive park intended to foster fun and friendship among children of all abilities.
