This is an awesome school! My daughter is about to finish her first year of school! She has learned so much and is eager to continue as a first grader next year! The staff is very friendly and there is an assortment of great teachers that are willing to listen and help with anything. I would recommend this school to anyone in the area!
The teachers, administrators and staff at Rosa Parks-Edison are top-notch. My third and first grader are excelling academically and socially at RPE.
We love Rosa Parks-Edison school. My kindergartener has flourished in the environment due to the exceptional teachers, principal and support staff. We couldn't be happier!
you never have to worry about the education that your child will have at Rosa Parks Edison. The teacher and prinipal are top notch, the academic program is high quality and they teach the children to be better people by teaching them exceptional values. I am so happy my child has been able to attend!!
I love the Edison design! It's been wonderful for my son and many other students. The teachers are terrific too!
Rosa Parks does a great job teaching core values to our children. they evaluate each student and make sure they are properly challenged.
Our two children have been attending this school since kindergarten. Our experiences with teachers, administrators and support staff have been very positive and helpful. We are very pleased with the education our children are receiving and the regular involvement and follow-up with us regarding our children's progress in class.
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.
We feel very blessed to have gotten our son into this school. The teaching staff is excellent and dedicated. From the principal on down, everyone is ensuring the success of the students.
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.
Highest test scores in the county. Very high parent involvement. Active student involvement. Progressive education. Fantastic school.
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.
