Parker Elementary has been in the community since the early 1920s as a one-room school house at the corner of Ney and Parker Avenue. Parker has sent forth many Oakland community members who have remained committed to the City of Oakland in a number of leadership capacities. Now situated at the corner of Ney and Ritchie Avenue, it is quickly becoming the cornerstone for the revitalization of community engagement. We nurture scholarship at Parker Elementary, supporting one focused, self-disciplined Parker scholar at a time. Parker scholars are engaged in powerful learning experiences, with daily opportunities for high academic achievement, non-competitive games, physical activity, and fine arts in a supportive school environment. Nurturing the potential of every Parker scholar is our passion.
