    "Francis W. Parker has served as my second home in many respects. With a considerable number of extracurriculars from which to choose, Francis W. Parker makes the task of finding people of similar interests easy. I love the small class sizes, which allow for more student engagement."

    "I have had an awesome experience at Francis W Parker. Teachers at Parker are creative (and free to make their own curricula because of Parker's progressive philosophy) and teach students mind-blowing ideas, along with critical thinking skills. However, the unavoidable smallness of each class makes some students too comfortable with one another - everyone knows everything about everyone. Additionally, many reputations stick from middle school. Yet the education, especially in history and English classes, is great. Parker has, however, been trying to improve their STEM classes - they finally introduced higher-level math courses into middle school curricula, and now high schoolers must take computer programming/coding for at least one year. Recently, because the administration in the high school has been changing for around 5 years now, some students feel that they have less influence in school processes than they used to. Overall, though, definitely come to Parker!"

    "I have been attending Francis W. Parker School since I was in Junior Kindergarten; I will be entering my senior year this Fall. This school offers a rich and relevant curriculum to its students with classes taught by some of the best teachers in the country. Francis Parker offers countless opportunities for students to learn in not only different parts of the country, but different parts of the world. In the past 4 years, I have been to Puerto Rico, Belize, New Orleans, Washington D.C., and other locations in and around Chicago and the state of Illinois. This upcoming school year I am looking forward to visiting Iceland with the science department and Mexico with Pride Committee. Parker is a school that encourages students to find their passion(s), embrace it, and share it with the community."

    "I'm a 14 year alumnus of Parker with a child in school today. Parker has lost much of the magic from prior generations. Today, it is little more than a rich-kid school, with huge administrative staff and no economic diversity. No longer a "complete" community, it is merely an "elite" community. In addition to having no economic diversity, Park has little political diversity, and administration is unresponsive to the progressive indoctrination that occurs in some classrooms. Perhaps some of the teachers confuse the "progressive educational movement" with the "progressive political movement." Parker still offers opportunities for a great education, but overall Parker is no longer the magical place it once was - just an expensive private school."

    "It's really great. I like it. It's not really diverse (I'm not sure how it got anything better than a C), but it's a good school."
