Our children feel loved and supported at this school. We feel a strong sense of community. Our children are challenged academically while also growing through art, music, dance, pe, and other electives. We could not be happier.

I really like this school. My son is in the Map program in the 5th grade. His teachers are wonderful. They provide detailed email updates on a weekly basis and I am very satisfied with their program. However, I have to agree with the previous post that the principal could use a little lesson on people skills. I had a discussion with her last year about a concern and she was a little condescending and seemed a little uninterested.

School No. 23 has great parents, students, but some of the teachers are complacent and the principal is kurt and unapproachable. I asked her some questions regarding state exams and she told me she would follow up after she met with her team. Unfortunately, I am still waiting several months later. This school could be a great school given the community, students, and parents, however it will never reach it's full potential with it's current leadership.

I would agree about the principal and the kindergarten teacher Mrs. W. is awesome in her efforts to connect with every child.

Principal is extremely involved with kids and works very hard to give them the best education and socialization opportunities. MAP programs study math and English 1 year ahead of grade. Very happy to have our son there, having moved him from a private school.

Francis Parker School is a small school (approximately 300 students) and has the advantages of the teachers and principals knowing each of the students personally. My daughter (a kindergartener) loves the school and has thrived there. The school's greatest treasure is the principal, who knows each child by name, who takes the time each week to review students' work and conduct reading circles with the youngest readers, and who supports the teachers and encourages them to the highest performance.

We have 2 children at School #23. They have both attended since PreK and are presently in 3rd Grade and Kindergarten. School #23 is a place where children can excel. The principal is amazing and the teachers have been wonderful, very considerate and supportive in all aspects. The parental involvement coupled with the principal's support and drive make school #23 what it is, an incredible place for students to learn. I have nothing but the best things to say about Francis Parker #23 school and so do my kids, they love it here!
