Map of Parker Elementary School address.

Parker is a very good school in my opinion. The location of the school gives the school a bad wrap. The teacher are very dedicated and if expecting children to be respectful and mindful makes them old-fashioned I consider that a matter of opinion. I agree that parental support should be more, but this is not the fault of the adults within the building. Teachers are there after and before hours to support students.

This school is beyond words. The staff are engaged and engaging with the students. My son loves it there. In his previous school, he would just sorta hang out with his friends, but he didn't really enjoy learning. At Parker, he has really started enjoying learning to read and write and do math.I LOVE IT! The principal is also very involved. You'll see him walking around in the mornings, talking to parents or students, looking over the road crossing brigade, checking out the kids playing on the play structure. He is very in touch with what's going on "on the ground" and does not just hide in his office. Overall, Parker Elementary has done wonders for my son, and there's no other school I'd rather put my boy in!

Parker Elementary School has one of the most dedicated staff I have ever worked with. Their tireless efforts and compassion to make sure every child has academic success and positive social development is commendable. The heal;thy school environment supports children and families. Test scores have been raised and the enriching activities provided foster confidence and positive self esteem in all students. Parker is one of the best schools in Oakland!

Parker Elementary has a long way to go in order to become a successful school. There are many problems of violence, old-fashioned teachers, and unconcerned parents.

About this school

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.
