“We were seeking a Progressive school for our children – a safe and enriching environment to cultivate their interests. Francis Parker has surpassed our expectations, not only providing thoughtful and targeted instruction, but also a diverse community of teachers and parents dedicated to our children’s future. We continue to advocate for this community as we watch our children grow into compassionate and insightful citizens.”
– Kirk, Middle School Parent
