Student Government

Since the founding of the school in 1912, good citizenship has been one of Parker's core values. Developing competent, sensitive and ethical leaders is a key function of the student government as they take responsibility for representing the student body.
 
At Parker, the student voice is an integral part of the decision making process. Students should feel free to bring any concerns they may have to the ASB. This student council advocates for students to address issues affecting campus climate and the welfare of the student body.
 
Students may participate in student government through either elected or appointed positions.
