All of the teachers, support staff & PTA at RPE give 100%. They have always been attenative to all of our childrens needs. During natural disasters they collect donations & do a great job implementing the importance of respect & compassion among one another.

I attended Rosa Parks for 5th grade the first year it opened, and my brother attended Rosa Parks for k-5. It is a WONDERFUL school with some of the best teachers around. Each student recieves a laptop to use, and all students learn Spanish.

Excellent teachers and excellent administration at Rosa Parks. I have 3 girls that have started in Rosa Parks from Kindergarten and on. The reading skills that is taught is tremendous. In the days of schools cutting back, we have teachers that take time out of their own days, just to meet with parents and go over how the child is doing in school. This is great, not only for the parents, but for the child as well. We are able to know what to work on at home, so it helps with the learning at school. Rosa Parks Edison is by far one of the best schools a parent could ask for! And the parent involvement is a excellent with helping in class and makes being a parent a lot easier meeting all the good people around the school!

The teachers at Rosa Parks are great! I love the idea of the SLC's. Getting to meet your child's teacher face to face and review their learning skills and their progress really shows your child that you care about being involved, Also, the interest that the teacher shows lets you know, as a parent, that they are vested in your child's education.

The emphasis that the Edison schools place on reading and foreign language (Spanish) makes it a great school!

I have has kids in Rosa Parks for four years now and absolutely love it. My children are cared for at their levels, which I have one how has difficulty learning and a child who is well above her level and all of them get all the needs and more. All the staff is a delight. I extremely glad to see such a caring new principal and new assistant principal.

The teachers care and are very dedicated; however the office Administration do not follow through with what is promised. If you do not agree with their measures they brush you off in hopes parents will not take a stand.

My 3 children go to this school, and it's a blessing - especially considering the performance of the rest of the district. The teachers are wonderful, the staff is very helpful, and the curriculum is geared towards parental involvement. The emphasis on parental involvement is key here: the school asks for (and gets) a lot more involvement from parents than a traditional school, and they put that involvement to use.

I am a parent of four students at Rosa Parks, and it is worth the wait of getting off the waiting list. The academic standards are really high for all grade levels. The staff work well with the parents and the PTA. Every student is given one on one attention in subjects of need, and parents are in constant contact with teachers and staff.

My son started at RPE in 2nd grade, we knew what we were getting into with the Edison style and was excited that finally Indiana has decided to change from the old school to some new techniques. My son did extremely well here. Not only are the teachers awesome but so is the rest of the staff! It does take a village to raise a child! Not only parent envolvement but also teacher who care. This however is not always present. My daughter now attends 1st grade and is once again doing wonderful. This is a great school and well prepares students for life too. I would highly recommend this school, it would be a shame if you past this up. Go Rockets!

I did not care for the curriculum. The school seemed to focus more on self esteem than performance. I guess I'm old fashioned. My child is thriving at another Perry school. The teachers do seem dedicated, however.

My daughter has gone to this school since Kindergarten and I have to say has had the most wonderful, young, vibrant, and fresh teachers. She is in the third grade and can read far better than I could at her age. This school does require parent involvement and hard work, but it's all well worth it. She can add huge numbers in her head already as well. I feel so blessed to be a part of this school. Go Rockets!

[My son] started at Rpe when it opened and he was in second grade. Needless to say what I learned at his first SLC (student learning conference) was mind blowing. I found out more about what his strong suits were and where he needed help at. Not only can they tell you they can pin point the problem areas. Which I believe is amazing. I was a little unsure of this program myself mainly because I didn't understand and frankly I still don't some of the techniques but it works! He in the 5th and this kid is thriving! Its not always easy but no one ever said kids would be right! :)

I am very much impressed by the way the teachers take care of the academic growth of the students. The students who know more than their age group , they have special way of making these students learn more and more. I am so happy that my son got admission in this school, thank his lucky stars.
