Everything about Parker High School is beyond great! Educational wise, all teachers have an outstanding curriculum and teach it very well. Sports at Parker on the other hand, haven’t been the best they could be in awhile and that could change by how the coaches coach all their players. But, students there are very nice and polite, it’s super easy to make friends. You have plenty of opportunities at this school if you work to your fullest. Parker High is a great school all around!

Since attending Parker High School, I felt safe in and around Parker, it has a calm/drama free environment. A few things come to mind what I liked about Parker High School, the challenging academics such as Math, English, and History. Some teachers were helpful and encouraging which helped me to see past the struggle & continue my education after I graduate in June of 2018.
For future years to come, I would like to see the whole athletics department take and use the talent that has been given to them (students), imply those during practices/games. Gain a better coaching staff that actually cares about their athletes, hoping to eliminate the amount of disrespect to the student/athletes.
I am a nerd for musical theatre, and Janesville Parker has been recognized by Broadway for our productions, so I'd say we're pretty impressive for being in the dinky little city we are. I love the musical program we have here, and everyone involved is so amazing and hardworking. I'm not in sports or anything, so I'm basically just speaking for the theatre side of the extracurriculars, but either way I think it's the best! I have been in three musicals at Parker and all three have been such beautiful experiences for me. The cast and crew become such a close-fit family and we are all so passionate about making the production truly grand, and I take pride in being part of the musical department at Parker. This is something I would recommend to everyone, and I hope they all get to experience something this wonderful!
