Francis W Parker School Ratings & Reviews

March 22, 2018 Submitted by a parent
The high school experience at FWP needs an overhaul. With some recent upgrades in the math and science faculty academics are less of an issue (although if you have an exceptional math or science student this still isnt’ the best option for you). Culture is the main problem. First there’s clear favoritism towards certain students (offspring of board members, mostly). Second the unrelenting emphasis on diversity turns off the very kids who could benefit most from exposure to other cultures. But the focus seems to make certain teachers and administrators feel better about themselves. Finally, the high school looks the other way on the question of “extra time.” Whereas nationally students with learning disabilities that require extra time on tests and the ACT are 2% of the population, at FWP it’s closer to 40%. Parents can easily “buy” a diagnosis of a learning disability and the school readily accepts it. It’s cheating, pure and simple. Everyone knows it. Disadvantages the kids who play by the rules who look on in disgust as that group gets as much time as they want (sometimes over several days) and post scores that are abnormally high. FWP does not reveal which kids have extra time on college applications. But conversations suggest that many college admissions office suspect that the system is being abused and assume that ALL FWP students have extra time. That seriously disadvantages the honest kids — and there’s not a thing that they can do about it (other than change schools but by then it’s too late). So if you send your child to high school at FWP you’d better decide early whether you’re going to encourage cheating (“because everyone else does it”) or whether your values are more important than an inflated ACT score. The topic is absolutely taboo at the HS because the teachers, board members, and administrators with kids enrolled there often engage in the dishonest behavior themselves. And just because the colleges don’t push the issue (frightened by the prospect of litigation I’m sure) doesn’t make it right. FWP sends all the wrong signals to these kids, all the while sanctimoniously bragging about their commitment to diversity and their anti-AP test mentality. I’m a Parker parent and my kids go to prestigious colleges, so it’s not sour grapes on my part. I just think it’s important for other parents to understand the culture there.

I am a parker alum, having gone to Parker for 14 years as a child. Parker in the 1960s and 1970s was an amazing school. The student body was diverse in a calculated way (unavoidable in such a small school) but the socio-economic diversity was real. I had some classmates who were truly rich, and others that were middle or lower middle class. And none of the kids knew or cared. Of course, I wanted my child to go to Parker.Parker to day is not what it once was. The lower school remains excellent, but the middle school is in trouble, mostly due to its administration. Political correctness has infected the classrooms, and teachers are hired and retained for reasons other than educational excellence.Worst of all, Parker has become merely a "rich kid" school, with outrageous tuition, and an administration that seems to have lost sight of the fact that in the old days, parents were co-equal participants in the school's "complete community." Today they are simply consumers of a product they have little influence over.Parker still represents a solid education, a great legacy, and a place where many children can thrive. But it is no longer magical. Not by a long shot.

We feel very fortunate to be part of this community of engaged parents and committed students. The educational philosophy focuses on developing all aspects of an individual and I feel confident that my children will learn and experience the necessary "life" skills and not only the academic skills to succeed. The teacher/student ratio is low and there is a genuine interest in each child's learning behaviors and abilities.

I am an alumnus and attended high school at FWP 2 decades ago. The high school had a good arts program, as you had options, but the teaching was no better than another arts school in the City. The math and science program was bad. Poor to average teachers, didnt have math books and science teachers were boring. It is not worth the tuition. They habd pick the students, it is the upper 1% and unrealistic environment. A progressive school would include students from all socio-economic backgrounds, otherwise it is in theory only. The best program they had was the English dept. Although a couple of bad teachers there too. What you pay for is for your kids to have small class sizes and hang out with other privileged kids. Some graduates didnt go anywhere with their lives.

I went to Francis W Parker as an incoming Freshman. I was expecting an open community with diverse views and people. After going to Parker for a month I realized it was the complete opposite. I would go to school everyday feeling absolutely terrible about myself and my decision to go to Parker. The 'community' that they advertised was all false. I am a girl of color and going to Parker is painful for me. I have to attend a meeting every Friday where I listen to students just like me rant about how much they detest Parker. The only thing that makes me feel slightly happy about going to Parker is the food and building. Parker does have some pretty good teachers, nothing truly exceptional though. I honestly think that the only reason you should go to Parker is if your are white. Being completely honest you will be torn apart if you are of another ethnicity. Please, please trust me. Since attending Parker I have spent most of my nights crying myself to sleep.All I can say is that I can not wait to leave this school and go somewhere that I can actually feel accepted.
