Hello HPC students, faculty and staff, and any other visitors to my page! I am Mr. Parker, the orchestra and head chorus director for High Point Central! Thank you for visiting my page, and I hope you find what you're looking for from here! As other students have said, "We are not just a class. We are a family!" And through many ups and downs, we are indeed a family.
