I have had nothing but positive experiences at RPE. I have one child who is a high achiever and was encouraged to excel, and another child with different learning abilities, who the school went the extra mile to accommodate. We are by no means a "wealthy" family, but have never felt excluded because of it. I love the feeling of community that the school creates and encourages.

Poor, looking back,over the past 5 1/2 years, IT is NOT as it seems. We would have chosen a different school. If you have money and/or your child excels academically, or you are in the school daily to whew the staff, you have it made....otherwise steer clear! And almost all our teachers rewarded with SUGAR, just what child with ADD needs!

This school is not for families that consider anything other than test scores as evidence of learning. The school leadership is downright rude and horrible.

We would highly recommend Rosa Parks Elem.! I have two children who attend school there and we have been so pleased since we started there in 2015! The teachers and staff are top notch-- caring, dedicated, hard working, organized, communicative-- and the school is soo well run. There are a variety of extracurricular activities from which to choose. The school is very good about helping each individual student at his/her level. For example, our daughter needed more challenge in certain areas so her teacher pulled her out of her regular class for a short period on a regular basis each week (45 mins) so she could attend a small group gifted class and have a little more rigor. The facilities are outstanding. There is only one portable classroom for music and Stem. The technology is excellent too! Our daughter started taking violin in school and we were blown away by how much the orchestra teacher taught her group in just one academic year. We have had such a positive overall experience at Rosa Parks and would recommend it without ANY hesitation!!

Folks - we moved out of this district two years ago to a place well outside of Kentucky. If your kid is struggling, if you are not wealthy or if your kid is not the top 10% kid, this is NOT the place for you. It is sick how hyper competitive this school is, and it clearly had a massive effect of my kids. My kids have THRIVED since we left! The hype of RPES is based around its location - rich people running the school. Unless you are in the top of class you will get left behind.
