Round Square Overview
Park City Day School is a proud member of Round Square, an international consortium of 230 like-minded schools in 50 countries that all value the same set of IDEALS. Round Square allows us to connect and collaborate in order to offer world-class programs and experiences that develop global competence, character, and confidence in our students.
What Round Square Means to Students
We are privileged to live in the small mountain community of Park City, Utah. However, it is imperative to expose our students to the broader global community. Round Square is a fantastic entry point to international exchanges, professional development and curriculum resources for teachers that expand our students' perspective. Our membership in Round Square allows us to plug into a global network of schools that encourage cultural exchanges. We have welcomed students from around the world who stay with host families and we have sent our students off as well. These exchange opportunities are at the core of our mission to lead great and giving lives.
There is more to us than we know. If we can be made to see it, perhaps for the rest of our lives we will be unwilling to settle for less.
