Rosa Parks Arts High School is not only a school, it is like being with your family. They work very hard to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to be successful

As the first and only high school in our nation to be named after Mrs. Rosa L. Parks, we are a school family that takes great pride in embracing values that ensure academic achievement as well as social success. We believe and espouse respect, trust, support of others, equity, leadership, and community service through the arts. Because of budget constraints in our community and statewide, our school family and programs which extend beyond the walls of the school building, risk elimination. The programs have afforded our inner city young adults to realize 100% graduation- 10 of the last 12 years! 98% of our students go on to higher education, with scholarships! We have been recognized as one of our nation's best high schools by "US News and World Report". Our budget constraints, unfortunately, will not afford our students the myriad opportunities to continue to perform at such venues as the Rotunda in VIrginia, the NJ governor's mansion, Disneyworld, and Carnegie Hall. These performances serve as the barometer by which the students are assessed. Even though our students' socioeconomic status is labeled 'disadvantaged', through leading by example and tough love, the faculty and staff diligently labor to prove that inner city youth can excel!!! For you see, FAILURE IS NOT AN OPTION, is our montra!

I teach at this high school, and every student becomes the priority of everyone in the building. From the audition process to graduation; with 98% going to a 2 or 4 year college, the students are the focal point of everyday. But the needs are beginning to outweigh the budget, We have an eight major performing arts program, yet the humanities, also have huge demands to keep up with a 21st century education. This win will go a long way to reaching the goals of preparing our students for a sound and prosperous future.
