    "a great k-12 school. although it lacks diversity, it has a very progressive atmosphere. Teachers and students have great relationships throughout your Francis Parker experience. I have teachers I remember from lower school that I still know and say hi to. Parker also does a great job with combining the high school, middle school, and lower school. Parker also has a lovely assembly every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday where all students are brought together to see a speaker or student put on what we call a Morning Ex. Overall Parker has a very unique teaching style that can create, not only intelligent students, but great people."

    "As a parent of a couple Parker children I too agree that the education is good - but is it worth $25,00 a year per child with a need to give $2500 more per child (donation) annually - NO! The pressure to give give give is insane. And the demands to do do in this rough economy is disturbing. The tuition soars each year minimum of 6% with the care or end in sight. The principal has no concerns about where parents will find this extra money to pay."

    "As a parent of a child at Parker, new parents have a right to a more balanced view of the school than the brochure-postings placed previously. Yes, the education is great but not the best - I have visited other private schools to check out the competition - others are good too. Parker also comes at a price. Parents have to constantly 'jump hoops' to stay part of the 'community'. There is a constant pressure to be active in the 'community', to constantly donate to various fund-raising efforts. Every week, there are requests for donations. There is also the indoctrination of both kids and parents that I find mildly disturbing - that there is nowhere like Parker, no where is as good, no where as wonderful. An almost mindless ra-ra-ra of self-congratulation that we have attained nirvana. Come on - we all need to get real."

    "Throughout their time at Parker my children have been challenged to maximize their potential. Academic discipline coupled with engagement in the curricula motivates them to achieve a depth of understanding far exceeding grade level expectations. Not insignificant to their education is the daily work of the Parker community in building character and citizenship in students. Alumni remain engaged and open worlds to current students. Faculty is accessible and accomplished. They really know who your child is and how they learn! My children have become skilled communicators and agile thinkers at Parker. Parents are a strong presence. Volunteer opportunities abound. As a parent, that is how you see firsthand the Parker educational values at work! Outstanding!"
