Vision
Francis Parker School is committed to graduating students who embody those qualities essential for academic success and personal fulfillment — intellectual curiosity, creative thinking, passion for learning, ethical responsibility, self-reliance, community engagement, and global competence — by offering a balanced, challenging and integrated Junior Kindergarten - Grade 12 educational program in academics, athletics and the arts, all in a vibrant and diverse school community.

At Parker we are committed to developing students:
  • Who strive for academic excellence while maintaining social and emotional well-being and balance
  • Who are able to participate in the fundamental human conversation on what is right, fair, and good by developing the necessary skills, aptitude, and imagination
  • Who are able to think critically, write persuasively, and communicate confidently
  • Who are familiar with the cultural, political, historical, scientific, ethical, and economic forces shaping the world
  • Who possess the tools necessary to realize their individual talents and potential in their academic and professional lives
  • Who embrace the larger world through meaningful, age-appropriate opportunities for experiential education
  • We will bring the world into our classrooms through sustainable relationships with local businesses and universities, visiting faculty and lecturers, and web-based collaboration. We will take our classrooms out to the world through meaningful, age-appropriate opportunities for experiential education, service learning, environmental awareness, and character education.
