The staff at Rhodes genuinely care about the success of the students. My daughter has an outstanding teacher (Mrs. Carthan - yeah!!!!). Rhodes is much deserving of this award.

They have a great staff. Kids love this school. the exercise in the morning, the do TKD, art, music, very holistic approach to education!
This is a great school with a lot of extra curricular activities and academic programs. My child is a GATE student and the school really challenges her potentials
Rhodes makes learning fresh and fun. I love that the staff goes above and beyond their normal duties. It's like having a second family. We all come together as a community to make our school excel everyone's expectations. I thank God for a school like Rhodes!
The school has great teachers that care about their students. There is a team feeling at the school between parents, students, teachers and staff.
The teachers, th curriculum the approach. Everything is designed around the students excellence. Rhodes assumes all students are capable of excelling so they create an atmosphere where students can do just that.
I live in Oklahoma. I have access to everything the school is doing by the web site. The web site posts pictures of activities that all the children are involved in and makes it easy to see a grandchild evolving through learning at an excellent school with an above and beyond curriculum. When I am in California, I visit the school each time. I am so amazed at how the teachers are passing information and learning to the children through many different channels. It makes me want to go back to school and have an education, while enjoying learning. The children are all engaged in the classrooms
Remarkable school offering challenging curriculum to students combined with creative and fun activities the we all love! Faculty goes above and beyond expectation.
I love Edwin Rhodes Elementary School. The teachers are fantastic as well and the admistrative staff. The school is in immaculate condition at all times. The ciriculum is challenging and fun, the school is innovative in it's thinking in terms of giving the kids a well rounded education. My son loves his school and his teacher!
My kids have been to so many different school, but Rhodes is best school among all.
It's the best school. The curriculum is great, teachers have a good focus and the parent participation is high!
As a parent and an employee of Rhodes and having been there since it opened I feel qualified to say that I have never seen a more dedicated staff or group of parents. The overall collegieate theme of the school is an incredible way to promote children going to college after high school. I have been truly blessed to be a part of this incredible school.
The academic challenges, curriculum, & goals the teachers provide for the students. This school really recognizes the students on their achievements! Rhodes Elementary is a great school.
They use multiple intelligences to teach different types of learner. They incorporate theater and music in the curriculum. They listen to different types of music during lunch. They have the library open for kids to read at lunchtime- they also have a game room for them to play pingpong and board games at lunch. They have 'grad classes' where different people come and teach them various things from karate, ceramics, Indian dancing, juggling, CSI stuff, drawing, and singing- at the end they have a performance day where they can show what they learned. The kids get 'scholarships' when teachers 'catch' them doing good things- walking instead of running in certain areas, being good at the Monday morning assembly, throwing trash away, helping collect balls after recess. Every Monday morning they have a school assembly to bring all students together as a community and have the announcements (not over the intercom) which instill a sense of belonging together. Each classroom is a University and the mascot is a rolled up diploma called 'Rhodie'. In Feb. a dinner banquet (or dessert first occasion if budget is tight) and medals are given - gold, silver and bronze depending on how each child scored on the test. The Scholars walk down a red carpet, in a spotlight while their name is read. Visit our school website to see pictures of the whole array of extras our teachers and staff have for the kids- yearly links to pictures are on the left side of the home page. www.edwinrhodes.groupfusion.net The PEP Club is the PTA- everything is collegiate, so the kids have early exposure to higher education. They bring in pompons to the Monday morning meetings and sing the school song. This school does more than just teach the kids, they instill a sense of community and a love of learning and a desire for higher education. It is truly amazing and the kids Llove their school! Please visit the website to get an idea of how different this school is. We currently have the highest score in the county. However, due to budget cuts it is getting harder and harder to continue many of these programs, and the level of programs and opportunities for these kids is going down. The money would go a long way to helping continue the success!
Rhodes is such an awesome school! The teachers, staff and parents are so dedicated to helping these kids get the best education possible...they make learning so much fun!
Love It! My kids are very fortunate to attend a school with such dedicated teachers!! Aside from an A+ education, they get to participate in fun and exciting activities that broaden their minds and keep them excited about learning.
The whole staff work their hardest and dedicate their time and energy to make the school environment THE BEST!! My children are enjoying their school life as well as trying to do their best. They are encouraged to join so many fun activities and they are so motivated to do well academically as well. As parents we support our school 200%!!
Rhodes Elementary has the best teachers, staff, children and parents around. My child has become an awesome student thanks to Rhodes. He loves going to school every day.
