Gordon Parks Elementary School is a kindergarten through third grade public charter school. Our school was named in honor of Gordon Parks the groundbreaking African-American photographer, who proudly endorsed the school’s mission of educating urban core children to reach their full potential.

With its exceptional teachers, small classes (no more than 18 per class) and a vision of a holistic curriculum integrated with the arts, Gordon Parks offers an outstanding education to all children. With its intensive support services in special education, counseling, and social skills development, Gordon Parks is particularly well established to serve students whose education is hindered by various risk factors. Each year, 98% of Gordon Parks’ students qualify for the free/reduced lunch program, a common indicator of low-income used by schools.
