We are so lucky to be a part of the RP community. A 5? Really? Rosa Parks is sort of like an amazing vacation spot that hasn't been discovered yet. :) It will be soon ... and we get to be there.

My older son is now in middle school after all six elementary years at Rosa Parks and my younger son is in the fourth grade there.

Rosa Parks made significant gains in 05 on the state test, this is reflective of the restructure and focus on quality instruction. The school has landed an experienced principal and is excited to begin a new school year. Progress is definately on the horizon.

Many of the teachers at Rosa Parks are excellent, and the facilities are certainly above average. However, there are intractable problems at that school that the best efforts of the staff and the PTA have been unable to address. Proceed with caution.
