Rocky Boy Tribe
Chippewa Indians of
Parker School, Rocky Boy Reservation
Located in the mountainous portion of the Anishinabe-Dakota Reservation, the CDP (Census Designated Place) of Parker School, is the second largest settlement on the Anishinabe Reservation according to the 2000 census but probably is no longer the second largest settlement on this Anishinabe Reservation. Latest population count (2000) has Parker School having a population of 352. There are at the present time, 82 housing units in the settlement, which means the average housing unit size at Parker School, is slightly over four. The elevation of Parker School is 4,160 feet above sea level. The high elevation means the settlement has cooler summers than the lower elevations on the plains. FIPS code is 30-56650. The Parker School CDP covers 7.8 sq. mi. The CDP is what rightfully can be called a true CDP. There is no one location where a majority (like 40 or 50 housing units) is located. Parker Schools housing units are widely distributed throughout the 7.8 sq. mi. About 25% of the settlements population lives below the poverty line, which means the CDP's population has access to nearby jobs. Indians make up 97% of the settlements population. Whites make up 2% of the population. There is a sharp contrast in scenery between Parker School and the other CDP'S which are located in the Reservations mountains, to the secenery of the plains. From the treeless plains, Parker School and the other settlements located in the nearby Bear Paw Mountains, have many a tree which paints a beautiful scenery.
