  • I must say that my children and I have grown to love Parker Community Academy. My son started off on a rough start , the disciplinary staff has worked wonders with him and I absolutely love that they did not dismiss my son as another classic case. They took time to understand him as an individual and worked with him to improve himself as an young man. A special thank you to Ms. Craig and Mr. Maclin for having patience. I think Parker needs to keep these two on board until the end of time......I absolutely love them!!!!!

  • I attended Parker Academy from grades Kindergarten through eighth grade (1986 is when I graduated). I remember some of my fondest childhood memories here. I am now an eighth grade United States History teacher in San Antonio,Texas who just finished her second masters degree. I like to think my education at Parker Academy was instrumental in my success as a person and human being. The teachers at the time were the best because they pushed us to succeed. I am proud to be a Parker Panther!!
