Good solid school, but the cost is prohibitive. The tuition outprices a lot of great kids, and the level of financial assistance just isn't high enough to help families with more than one enrolled child. We're leaving the school for this reason, and it's a shame.

The academic programs are unmatched in San Diego. Music is a part of the curriculum from Junior Kindergarten on, with a dedicated music, technology, art, woodshop, two PE, two science and many more teachers. Small class size, heavy emphasis on ethical behavior, family life, and friendship. It is the best school we have found in three cities.

Francis Parker Upper School's mission is educating the whole child and creating a family environment. They do this well. The student who graduates from Parker can receive a good education at whatever level of difficulty he or she wants to tackle. Their sports program is extensive; their arts program includes sculpture, wood working, drawing, photography, video. It reminds me of high school when I was young-rah, rah, few problems, teachers who care. The parents are very involved.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
