Learn to code, code to learn
Teresa Ferrer-Mico, our former science and math teacher is teaching Parker kids programming with Scratch in Computer Club on Fridays. It's part of the research for her doctoral dissertation - and kids are loving it. As MIT's Mitch Resnick says in his latest TED talk, "When you learn to code, it opens up for you to learn many other things."
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.
