Rosa Parks Elementary School Reviews
I love our school and so does my daughter. The principal is great, the teachers are excellent and the community of parents is involved and on it. We have a great language program, a garden, and even chickens on site. I toured many schools when preparing for kindergarten and this school is as good as the best. I would advise all prospective kindergarten parents to check it out for themselves. Test scores have been improving year after year; this is a school worthy of your attention and consideration.
Our family moved to San Francisco from New York last year. Enrolled in Rosa Parks JBBP and the program/school has exceeded our expectations -- amazing, caring principal/teachers, active family community and spacious school facility which includes garden and chicken coop. We have participated in after school programs like Chess Club and PTA/PTCC events. Overall, we couldn't be happier as a family to have found RP/JBBP.
My child is in the 1st grade and we could not think of a better fit for her. The techers are committed, well-trained, and always approachable. The prinicipal is passionate about the school and the kids, evidenced by his daily exercise routine with students in the yard every morning. The Japanese Bilingual-Bi-Cultural Program has been excellent for my daughter and she is excelling in all areas. The only thing I would change is more parent participation but then again, that's probably something that every public school could use more of.
