John D Parker Junior School (GR. JK-05)
John D. Parker Junior School is located in the northwest quadrant of Toronto. Opened in 1974, the school was expanded twice, in 1994 and 1996. Named in honour of Mr. John D. Parker, one of the original seven trustees elected to the Board of Education for the Township of Etobicoke, the school strives to honour his memory.
The school serves about 650 students who speak 26 different languages. About 63% of the students speak English as a second language.
About 150 students travel by bus to and from the school because of the distance between home and school.
About 450 students remain at school for lunch.
