Vision Statement

The vision of City Park School is to fully provide students the opportunity to be successful in our rapidly changing world through instruction, technology, and wellness based ideology that recognizes each child as a unique individual.


1.We believe in providing all children the language arts, math, physical education,fine arts, science, social studies and technology skills, which will enable them to communicate and function effectively now and in the future.
2. We believe it is in the best interest of each child in society for him/her to develop as disciplined and responsible individuals, showing respect for themselves and others.
3. If provided opportunities for success, we believe each child can learn. Expectations should be held high, keeping in mind the uniqueness of each individual.
4. We believe that in order to achieve an adequate educational foundation, each grade level is responsible for the required skills as outlined in the Tennessee Comprehensive Curriculum Guide.
5. We believe teachers, parents, students, and community should share in the responsibility for each child’s learning and will facilitate this cooperation effort through various family engagement activities.
