Our son loves going to Parker School and has made strong connections with fellow students and teachers. He spends the entire day there through childcare and loves every part of his day. The things he's learned at school have made him a more thoughtful and happy little boy.
Parker has been and continues to be a wonderful part of our children's lives, and of our own. It starts with the teachers, many of whom have been teaching together at Parker for an impressively long time, along with the Director who taught at Parker years prior to coming back to lead the school. Both of our children were among the youngest in their classes, and both have positively thrived in the nurturing, safe, encouraging environment created by the teachers. Both of our kids also love their time in the Childcare program, a seamless extension of the school's philosophy toward early childhood development. It's a good sign when neither of your kids want to leave school at the end of the day! No discussion of Parker would be complete without mention of The Little Red School Bus, an optional program where two teachers bring a small group of kids to visit a new part of San Francisco every day on the school's custom built red bus. Last year the very first words out of our daughter's mouth in the mornings were most often, "is today bus day?" Parker is truly a special place, with a fantastic group of educators and a vibrant, involved community of parents.
My kid is in his first year at Parker at the PM class. His creative abilities and appetite to write and spell words is amazing. I just moved from Europe to SF 3yrs ago and was very nervous about the school system and decided to not send my kid too soon. That was a mistake. I should have sent my kid to parker the year before, my insecurity I guess. Teachers are great, new headmaster is great, other families are great a real sense of community. Can't rate this school high enough. Sensible play based learning that encourages curiosity. Only problem I have is I run out of room for the art projects on the wall. Not a bad compliant!!
This has been a wonderful school, with an excellent teaching staff. While there have been a number of director changes, it has had not impact on the children due to the teachers who are the heart and soul of this play based school. The children are extremely happy, and are able to develop and grow in a supportive and nurturing environment. I couldn't recommend it more, and the proof is in the ease one feels in sending a child off to this great school each day. PS - there is a new Director at the school who seems to be a positive addition and has assimilated quickly into the School and great parent community.
