I find delight each day in the things that happen at Robert C. Parker School. I hope to share a little of the fun!

Adventure, challenges, laughter, friendship: Camp Chingachgook has it all. This is the 18th year Parker students have gone off at the start of the school year to gain self-understanding and a good group dynamic. It is a milestone to get to 4th grade and go on the trip - and each year holds a signature challenge. The 8th graders climbed Buck mountain and camped out overnight. It's a long hike - and everyone made it!
Children gain so much confidence from trying something that is new - and a little bit hard. Hmmm, I think we all do!
I became Head of Robert C. Parker School in 2003. I love walking the halls at school and watching the kaleidoscope of activities and the happiness and fun of the students and teachers. Parker's woods and meadows bring beauty into our lives each day. It is a great community - everyone pulling together to make a difference for children!
Robert C. Parker School engages each student in a thoughtful and challenging learning process that inspires curiosity and a passion to achieve, nurtures confidence and community, and cultivates purposeful action.
