About Us

Welcome to Parker

Welcome from the Head of School
 
Thank you for visiting the Francis Parker School website and taking time to learn about the extraordinary Parker experience.
 
Parker is a community of people who are deeply invested in preparing each child to live meaningful, fulfilling lives in an increasingly global society.
 
We start by providing exceptional academic instruction, thus positioning students to develop intellectual curiosity. Along the way, character education is embedded into the curriculum so that students develop instincts for personal responsibility, self-reliance and social awareness.
 
In the Middle and Upper Schools, our Global Studies Program immerses students in cultural field studies, allowing them to become true citizens of the world. All of this happens in a nurturing, college-going culture where 100 percent of our graduates are accepted to four-year colleges and universities.
 
Parker is an inclusive and diverse community. We believe a broad range of viewpoints, cultures and voices are essential to a whole-child educational experience.
 
We welcome you to come see what makes Parker one of the most desirable independent schools in the country. Our doors are always open.
 
All the best,
 
Kevin Yaley
