Rosa Parks Elementary School is located in the Mid City/City Heights area. Our motto is "Doing our best so we can be the best." We provide standards-based education for all students.
We offer regular education, special education and gifted and talented education (GATE) programs. Through the School in the Park Program students in grades 3-5 receive additional instruction in the Balboa Park museums and cultural institutions for a portion of each year. Teachers with B-CLAD certification provide support for bilingual students enrolled in bi-literacy classes. Students participate in after-school programs, intersession and the Success for Life program.
Staff, parents, community, and educational partners of Rosa Parks are committed to a quality education for all students. We are a member of the City Heights Educational Collaborative, an innovative educational initiative that partners three District schools in City Heights with San Diego State University School of Education, San Diego Education Association and Price Charities. Our school participates in many opportunities provided through the San Diego State Educational Foundation.
We enjoy many active community partnerships.These include the San Diego Natural History Museum, the San Diego Museum of Art, The Museum of Photographic Arts, The Museum of Man, La Jolla Music Society, Urban Village, Scripps Mercy Hospital, City Heights Wellness Center, San Diego Zoo and the San Diego Police Department, Mid-City Division. All help to provide a quality education to our students.
