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

Doing what comes naturally
Playing, making choices, experimenting, using the imagination as a tool for learning...all these are modus operandi at Parker. Scary that the broader culture is driving these out of a child's experiences. Great that there is a movement to bring it back!
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.
