Parker School has a family feel like no other-small but mighty! The academics are amazing along with a great list of elective courses( art,theatre, etc.)! My kids absolutely THRIVE here! The staff from the Custodian to the Headmaster have one goal and one goal only- my children and preparing them for life. The athletic program could use a little boost and it would help to have an athletic facility, but my kids still get so much from this tiny little red Parker School!

Excellent, loving teachers in a bucolic campus surrounded by green rolling hills... I love that the lower school is in a healthy and clean recent building, very open with some covered outdoor spaces. Project-oriented curriculum leads to lots of learning, enhanced with many specialty classes such as Spanish, Art, PE and Music. Parents care and are involved. Atmosphere is serene. My kid has loved all her teachers so far, and thinks she is lucky to attend possibly the best school in the world...
