    Family Fridays are a bit too much they can hold these to once a month. Kids that parents can't take time off work(kinder)are in class crying because no one showed up. Not all parents/parent are stay at home like this school seems to expect. Also they need to work on the pick up and drop off that is a nightmare surely there is a better way of doing this just because CNUSD doesn't want to provide bussing as everyone lives less than two mile radius that is still quite a walk for the younger ones. The teachers are good and so far the staff in the office has been good too. What happen to cubbies for lunch pail and hooks for backpacks! This is a newer school! Our child is definitely learning a lot here and we are very proud but this school still has a lot of developing and from how far back the reviews go it doesn't look like they will.

    I wish this school PTA thought a little harder about the feelings of the kids at this school. The ladies that supervise at recess are RUDE and MEAN to the kids I never see compassion from these ladies EVER! They intimidate the kids and it's not right! It's an elementary school with little kids the school should think about that! Then the PTA does this Grandparents Day at the school which bothers me because my kids don't have Grandparents that can come and I spoke to several other Mom's that said their kids come home upset because they have no Grandparents that can come. Why can't it be an outside of school event like they do for Mother/son Father/daughter and all the others so it's not rubbed in the faces of kids who don't have Grandparents? I know at least 7 parents keeping their kids home that day me included because of that event. School loses money and kids miss a day of school. PLEASE think about it and make some changes! Oh and I 100% agree with the lady about 100 mile club have some compassion for the kids! If you wont get out there in that weather don't make the kids do it either! Make it 30-45 min instead of an hour when its 90 degrees outside and when it's windy!

    My child is in her 2nd year at Rosa Parks. We love it! Can't complain about a thing. Her teachers have been amazing the office staff is kind and helpful the parking could be better but all schools around here are like that so I can't dock stars. If you stay involved then you can help and watch your children learn and grow. It's been great! So glad to be involved in such a top of the line learning facility!

    My son Abhi doesn't like this school because he misses his friends back in Canyon Vista.

    Rosa Parks - my 3rd grade daughter came in the middle of track d school year as we left PUSD. Her last 3rd grade teacher recorded poor math scores for her as I was very confused seeing as though her homework grades were A's. From her 1st Month at Rosa Parks her grades seemed to excel and improve almost immediately. This goes to show that although it begins with good parenting you need the support of qualified teachers coupled with school spirit and I believe Rosa Parks Elementary Provides all the above. )

    I am so thankful to have my son attend Rosa Parks. His Special Needs teacher Mrs. Nunez is outstanding. She is clearly dedicated to his success and that of her class.

    Both of our children attend (1st and 2nd grade). We couldn't be happier with the teachers (we especially loved Mrs. Rife in kinder) principal and believe that the school is first rate. There is a lot of parent participation and lots of opportunities for after school activities. The school librarian is pretty awesome too.

    The only problem I have with this school is their front office. They are extremely rude and dont even acknowledge you when you walk in. Both of my girls have gone to this school for 6 years and its always been the same. They simply dont want to be bothered and are not very helpful. I thought it would change when they got a new principle a couple years ago but nothing did. I have been to front offices of Eastvale elementary Riverheights and Ramirez and this front office staff has a few things to learn.

    I'm so irritated with this school! I don't feel like they have the kids best interest at heart at all. Every Tuesday they have 100 mile club and the kids have to run for about 45 minutes today is very windy and they still made the kids go out there and do it! First thing in the morning they had 1st-3rd graders out there in the cold windy air. Backpacks were blowing everywhere and papers flying out of kids hands but does the school care? Nope they were all in their warm offices and just had the noon supervisors go out and deal with it. Teachers were in meeting so they didn't have to deal with it either. I called the office to ask why they were still doing it because my child has allergies and asthma and her only response was that he could go sit in the office while they did 100 mile if I wanted him to. Ya every kid wants to go sit in the office for an hour and be isolated from their friends. Even the kids without asthma or allergies shouldn't have had to suffer through that! They treat these kids like cattle and it's a horrible!!! Even as I type this I can hear the gusts of wind against the window and all the stuff blowing around outside. Shame on you Rosa Parks!

    the teachers are great but I shouldn't have to feel obligated to buy an X-mas gift birthday gift end of year gift and then get SLAMMED WITH TEACHER APPRECIATION WEEK! Teacher apprciation week is soo annoying make parents fee OBLIGATED to buy gifts for 5 days then I FEEL OBLIGATED to pictch in as much as $20 bucks to buy b day gifts and x-mas gifts and end of year gifts. When they retire far earlier than I can that is their GIFT FROM ME as a tax payer. Unions have BRAIN WASHED everyone to think teachers don't get paid well. Teachers even THINK THAT. I heard one of my kids teachers actually say that to the whole class once. I shouldn't EVER be asked to pay money to any teacher. I actually feel it's wrong. I feel taken advantage. I would have more respect if it was buy supplies for class or collect for a St. Judes. But to ask and collect !0 -20 bucks a student for a teacher severl times a school year is a bit much. Teacher appreciation week should be DAY. We act like they are doing us a favor when they are doing a job we pay them to do very well for about 7 months out of the year.

    I have to agree with the parent that said the office staff is rude mostly one lady and I believe it's the same lady your talking about. I also think it's interesting that our school is so overloaded and the kids are being sent to other schools until there is room for them because there are so many kids here with transfers! How is that fair? They get to fill up the spaces and the kids who should have those spaces are shipped out to a different school. It's ridiculous! My son had to start at a different school last year and than they let him move here like 2 weeks later it was so confusing for him! I guess the school/principal just doesn't care about what's fair it doesn't affect them so why bother? But I bet if it was his kid being sent to a different school than the one he bought a house for thinking it would be his kids school he wouldn't be too happy! Get the kids with tranfers out of there and tell THEM to come when there is room not the kids that belong there! We're not alone in this I know so many other parents that feel this way it's topic of conversation quite often.

    first off I would like to just state how rude the office staff is!!!! Im sure they are tired of peopleccalling in upset about be overloaded but they give you the run around!! No answers until 5 days before the school starts and they dont forward your paperwork until the day before!! Now we got called to go back to Rosa Parks but were given no specific info. When I called the office I was told that they are very busy because an assembly just got out. Maybe I can call back? Um no....ill hold....I need an answer as to a track assignment. Then they transfwr me to some grouchy lady who answers the phone by saying "what track?" Thats what im calling you for! I said who is this? (Since she didnt introduce herself) then she repeated "what track" I told you lady im callibg you for a track assignment! She sounded like that grouchy monster lady on Monsters Inc. What a way to welcome a new student!!! Rude and unprofessional!!

    Love the teachers in this school. They have done a wonderful job with my kids. I took away one star for the traffic around the school during pickup and drop off. There are hundreds of students being released from the school and middle school at the same time. Drivers don't help - some of the worst. No buses. No crossing guards. No police to curb dangerous drivers. The school district and city council are aware and yet no action has been taken. Guess that we will have to wait until a kid goes missing or gets hit by a car before the problem is taken seriously. Sad but true.

    My child is very lucky to attend a school like Rosa Parks. It is one of the best in the city & district. A very diverse school full of bright students great principal staff and PTA! Lots of fun events throughout the year lots of parent involvement and over all lots of school spirit. The school is very organized clean and SAFE! Producing great test scores and advancing our youth today Rosa Parks has a great set of teachers no matter what track you are on. My son is in second grade now and I have loved every single one of his teachers so far Mrs. Thompson Mrs. Borden and Mrs. Hill. Rosa Parks is a wonderful elementary school. LOVE IT!!!!

    I have three kiddos that attend Rosa Parks and I couldn't be happier with this school. I have a child in 6th grade 4th grade and 1st grade. Mrs. Vosberg has been all three of my kiddos' 1st grade teacher. She is a fantastic teacher! She has helped my children to excel and to love school. I wish I could just take her with us to all of the grades! Rosa Parks is a better school because of her and my children and better students because of her.

    This a great school. I love to volunteer in Mrs. Vosberg's first grade class. The daily communication report tells me exactly how well my child did. We love to work on the art projects and seeing them posted in the classroom. There are opportunities for students to do oral presentations. Mrs. Vosberg always provides extra help and support when needed. There are lots of ways to get invoked. We have done several but our favorite was science night.

    We have had a great year with Mrs. Vosberg in first grade. The writing program is great and we gave seen growth from a few simple sentences to whole paragraphs. Family Fridays are the best because it's a chance to get involved and know what is going in class. Mrs. Vosberg uses email and her website to be sure that important information is quickly communicated. Homework ad tests are quickly returned. Class expectations are clearly stated and consistently reinforced. Reading with teacher in a small group is a favorite. Thanks Mrs. Vosberg for helping students grow.

    Mrs. Vosberg is a fantastic teacher. Her first grade class is excellent. Her commitment to the students is overwhelming. She goes above and beyond as a teacher. She truly cares about each individual student in her class. My family wants to thank Mrs. Vosberg for her hard work and dedication. We have had two children in her class and they have both received a solid foundation to move on to second grade. Rosa Parks is lucky to have her as a teacher.

    In honor of Teacher Appreciation Week I am writing to encourage everyone to take a moment and thank their teachers. I want to thank Mrs. Vosberg from first grade. She always took time to give me lots of feedback on my student's reading/writing and helped her learn to love math. Teachers really do make a lifetime of difference. Thank you teachers at Rosa Parks for all that you have done for my family.

    Mrs. Vosberg is the best. Always upbeat. Keeps the kids on task. The learning environment is super. Have had two kids in her class and both have done great. You always know exactly how your student is doing individually and compared to the class using Zangle.
