    "My experience has been good, not great. Despite the school claiming to be community oriented and diverse, it is actually pretty homogenous and many students are competitive. Girls are cliquey and stuck-up while boys are disrespectful and loud. Nearly every high schooler drinks, and many do drugs. It is extremely difficult to get in trouble, adding to the feelings of entitlement among the student body. The humanities programs are really strong for the most part, with great teachers and courses. However, the STEM programs are weak in comparison to Parker's peer institutions. Lower Schoolers hardly learn any math, and some of the Upper School math and science teachers don't seem to care about their students. This causes many students to require tutoring. Some of the administrators seem to be more focused on marketing than what actually goes on in the school. Parker has its fair share of smart students, but it also has students who are lazy and don't seem to care about their education. The work load isn't too bad up until junior year, when it suddenly becomes unbearable for many students due to lack of preparation. One of Parker's greatest assets is its small class sizes, but the fact that it is a JK-12 school means that many students base their perceptions of their classmates off of what they were like in lower school."

    "You grow up learning about the world different than any other student. You learn more than just what is inside of a textbook. You learn about culture, current events, and it makes you grow up faster-- realizing most adults don't think or know as much about the world than what Parker teaches its students."

    "With four years of being at Parker, I can safely say that Parker is a wonderful institution for anyone who wants to get a great education. However, Parker's investment in being progressive is also it's largest undoing: the school only really cares about looking like they believe in progressive education while not actually thoroughly building one. The only thing the administration seems to really care about is their image. We learned that Parker just became an Illinois Democracy School, which in name is for the most part correct: we pride ourselves on being an "embryonic democracy." But at the end of the day that award will only amount to being another trophy to show off on every brochure. Parker has the potential to become even greater than it already is; that is, if the heads would take the time to acknowledge their faults instead of hiding them to save their vacuous image."
