George S. Parker High School is a comprehensive public secondary school located on the west side of the city of Janesville, Wisconsin. The school, named for George S. Parker, founder of the Parker Pen Company, was constructed in 1967. The rival east side school is Joseph A. Craig High School.

In 2006 a referendum passed that provided $71 million for updates and renovation to both Parker and Craig High Schools. Construction began in October 2007 and lasted two years.
