As a caring community of learners connecting learning to the world outside, Park Forest Elementary’s mission is to have all students live as good people and citizens, having respect for themselves, others and the environment. All children and adults who walk through our doors are welcomed as learners who strive to develop a commitment to lifelong learning. At Park Forest, we seek to honor all voices by embedding democratic practices and encouraging global awareness in the daily life of the school. PFE’s commitment to the school-wide community, service-learning, inquiry and inclusive practices are at the heart of how we meaningfully engage all learners. These opportunities and experiences help nurture and empower our community as we grow in empathy and agency.
