Francis Parker School is a coeducational independent day school in San Diego, CA with 1225 students in grades JK-12. Founded in 1912, the school’s mission is to provide a superior college preparatory education in a diverse, family-oriented environment
that meets the academic, social, creative, emotional and physical needs of individual students.
Overlooking Mission Valley, two separate campuses serve students in Lower School–junior kindergarten through 5th grade; Middle School–6th grade through 8th grade and Upper School– 9th grade through 12th grade. As a college preparatory school Parker
offers a comprehensive program that includes twenty-five advanced placement courses as well as a rich palette of electives, all designed to meet the individual needs of our students.
While students are central always, the faculty and staff who deliver our programs are no less important. Not only are we well qualified professionally, but also we share a deep commitment to the development of our children, to our own professional growth, and to the larger communities in which we teach and learn. A positive and purposeful spirit abides at Parker. Adults who believe in our students, our school, and ourselves, promote this tone, in both substance and style.
