It really is to bad that this school has been hijacked by a headmaster that knows nothing about Hawaii and the essence of Aloha. He runs it like some dysfunctional mainland school with no consideration for the local community. The island is to small for this and if the board does not see fit to replace him the school will become obsolete. Fortunately the word is out and if you ask around this is fairly common knowledge. I agree with the previous post which indicates this school used to be good and it can be again. Replace the clueless headmaster with one who knows the specific nuances of Hawaii and this school would be top notch. Until then avoid this school at all costs!

Individual attention and while there are standards, children also allowed to progress at their own pace and pursue their individual interests. My daughter loves school and the after school program. The art, music, language and science teaching in the elementary school are wonderful.

My daughters have attended the elementary school since kindergarten and they love it. The teachers are exceptional, the staff and administration is supportive and approachable and the campus is darling. The curriculum has been challenging but not too much so, and the enrichment programs including field trips are wonderful. Overall I give the school the highest recommendation.

Parker School has a small family-like atmosphere within a high quality academic curriculum. My college bound son, who is currently in 11th grade, has been at Parker since 6th grade. He has thrived in a safe social context and appropriate academic challenges. The faculty and staff are supportive and available and provide array of rich experiences.

Parker School is the best school my daughter has ever been to. She has straight A's thanks to her wonderful teachers. Math used to be her worst subject, but now it's one of her best because her teacher Mrs. Sturges (the headmaster's wife)has helped her to the greastest of limits. My daughter's in 6th grade and is at the bottom of the pile. Usually, the youngest ones are the most picked on. Well, in conclusion, Parker School is definetly my first pick.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

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.
