William Parker High School
Howell's Parker High School is a vacant public high-school building in Marion Township (Howell, Michigan). It is a part of the Howell Public Schools district and was 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.
During the spring of 2006, construction on the new school advanced on schedule and within budget. Parker High School opened for the 2007-08 school year on September 4, 2007. Due to budget limitations the district was not able to keep Parker's doors open and was shut down in 2008 after one year of use.
The school mascot was the Parker Patriot.
The school colors were Red, White, and Navy.
The principal (as of March 2014) is Mrs muntz
Students were able to attend classes from 7:37am until 2:17pm, but sports were still scheduled at the traditional time.
Another addition to the school was the Lansing Community College wing, in which college classes were offered to both college students and students of the high school. Students had the option of dual-enrollment in these classes, meaning they were offered both college and high school credit for the 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.
Howell Public School's unused Parker Campus was chosen as the primary filming location for the upcoming film High School, starring Adrian Brody and Michael Chiklis. Shooting began November 8, 2008. It is also the filming site of upcoming television teen show "The Wannabes."
