    We absolutely love Parker! We moved from California to Hawaii and our girls were accepted to Parker. Our girls were welcomed with open arms from both students and teachers. Parker creates a unique and safe place where children feel welcomed and free to express themselves. It truly feels like a family here. They have high academic standards, but they teach in a fun and exciting way. It's the best school around!

    Parker School is an excellent institution for educating children in grades K through 12. This school has a very small ratio of students to teachers, which deeply enhances the learning opportunities and relationships in a true Aloha, as well as 'Ohana spirit. Both the administration and faculty are very professional and provide unparalleled experiences to successfully prepare students for college. In addition to its strong academic curriculum, Parker School has an outstanding speech and debate program, along with the fine arts and several sports activities. Three of our children have graduated from Parker School and they are currently pursuing bachelor degrees in universities on the Mainland. We highly recommend Parker School to any parents, who want their children to receive the best education available in Hawaii.
    Parker School offers a friendly, safe, and fun learning environment, without compromising the quality of its students' education. Every faculty and staff member genuinely care about the students and aspire to see them grow during their time at Parker. Students strive for excellence, integrity, and compassion (from the Parker School Value Shield) on and off campus. Due to these values, every student is accepted for who they are, regardless of background, ethnicity, or gender. These are just a few reasons for why I am proud to be an alum of Parker School. I look forward to watching the Parker School Ohana continue to grow.
