Three schools. Two campuses.
Established in 1912, Francis Parker School is one of the premiere independent day schools on the West Coast, providing an exceptional college-preparatory education.
Our mission is to create and inspire a diverse community of independent thinkers whose academic excellence, global perspective and strength of character prepare them to make a meaningful difference in the world.
A Parker whole-child education complements a rigorous academic curriculum with vibrant programs in arts, sports and global studies.
Open, Welcoming Community
Parker is an open and welcoming community. We believe a broad range of viewpoints, cultures and voices are essential to students’ educational experience.
On the Missions Hills Campus, the Lower School serves students from Junior Kindergarten to Grade 5, while the Linda Vista Campus houses a Middle School for Grades 6 to 8 and the Upper School serving Grades 9 to 12.
Francis Parker School values diversity and seeks talented students, faculty, and staff from different backgrounds. The School does not discriminate on the basis of race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, creed or national origin in the administration of its admission, tuition assistance, employment determination, or its other procedures or programs.
