My son enrolled in the Rosa Parks Japanese program this fall. His kindergarten teacher, Mrs. Abiko, and his Japanese teacher, Inoue Sensei are both terrific. We love both the Japanese program and the school as a whole. I think every adult there knows my son's name. Every time we walk through the halls he's greeted by someone. The atmosphere is kind and friendly, and the school has some amazing programs and projects in the works. Parent involvement is very high. My kid is learning a lot. Homework is reasonable. After school programs/classes are available. Nice building. Lots of field trips. Check it out!

Although this school was not one of our choices on the application, we have been very happy with this school. It has a very beautiful campus and has 4 separate play structures. It also has a large yard area for PE, assembly, etc.

Rosa Parks JBBP is strong academically and includes great communication/conflict resolution training and exposure to diversity. The teachers and parents are amazingly dedicated and we are all impressed with the new principal. This school is truly an undiscovered gem!
