Well a lot of things have changed with the school. Under the leadership of the current principal RPA has made a dramatic change with the atmosphere with staff and parent involvement. School used to have a family atmoshphere. As she stated in a parent meeting, there is a new sheriff in town and that mentality was felt as soon as she took over. Teachers not happy with her leadership, PTA members resigned due issues. They state it is a school of choice when you encounter problems so that means you can leave if you don't like it here. They don't want excellent teachers that speak out, and you better focus on those test scores or you got problems. Every school has its problems it takes, parent, teachers, students, principal to work together and make the learning process great. RPA had that, and I want it to return.
This is my child's first year at Rosa Parks and his reading comprehension has greatly increased. His teachers are great to work with. Every Wednesday my child comes home with letters from his teacher and principal communicating current events and progress. He is very happy there and so am I. They have music, PE, and art once a week included in their curriculum. I am extremely content with my child's learning experience!
