William Parker High School

William Parker High School

Howell's Parker High School is a public high school (grades 10-12) recently completed in Marion Township (Howell, Michigan). It is a part of the Howell Public Schools district and is the sister school to Howell High School. It was completed in August 2007, and the nearly $70 million building is equipped with cutting-edge technology.


The school mascot is the Parker Patriot.

The school colors are Red, White, and Navy.

The current principal (as of Feb 2008) is William Smith.

During the spring of 2006, construction on the new school advanced on schedule and within budget. Parker High School has opened for the 2007-2008 school year, with its first day September 4th.

Parker is run on "flex scheduling" to help with the overcrowding of the campus. Students are able to attend classes from 7:40 am until 11:00 pm, but sports are still scheduled at the traditional time. Students that have "traditional scheduling" begin at 8:05 am and are released at 2:47 pm. However, students may also choose to come to school at a later time in the day and still finish at 2:47 pm if one of their classes can be done outside of school, such as Senior Capstone. This allows students more flexibility for activities such as a job or doing internships with local businesses. Although most students attend school at the William R. Parker Campus, a small group of students attend classes at the Howell High School campus, where one wing has been left open to students to help with the over-crowding at the new Parker Campus. Also with these scheduling options, students have the option of taking a course online. This allows all work except exams to be done outside of school and not during a scheduled class period, except on test days. The flexibility of the schedules at the new school mimic that of many colleges, which helps prepare students for college.

Another addition to the school is the Lansing Community College wing, in which college classes are offered to both college students and students of the high school. Students have the option of dual-enrollment in these classes, meaning they are offered both college and high school credit for these classes, offering more flexibility and more options to students.

The new Parker Campus is equipped with brand new technology, including wireless internet throughout the entire school, combination-less lockers, data projectors in every classroom, and a staff-less school store.
