  • Welcome Back to School!

    The 2016-2017 school year started on July 15th and our students and staff are doing great! It's still not too late to register your child! Just stop by the school office to pick up a registration packet. We are excited to meet you and your child!


  • Welcome to our Rosa Parks Elementary School Website! Rosa Parks Elementary K-5 School is nestled in the New Columbia neighborhood of North Portland, Oregon. Our administration, teachers, staff and volunteers work together to achieve our goal, "to place and keep children first in all we do." We have a diverse community with over 20 different countries represented, which is closely knit together into a larger community that works hard to help our students succeed. At Rosa Parks, "failure is not an option!"


    Year-Round Balanced Calendar

    We are a Year-Round Balanced Calendar School. In fact, we're the only school in the PPS District piloting this program and are in our 3rd year on this schedule. This year, we started school on July 15th! Students will go to school for nine-weeks and then have a three-week break (Intersession) in the Fall. We will follow this schedule until our summer release in June, when we will have a five-week summer break.



    On the third week of our Interssion/break, identified students who need extra math or reading support are invited back to what we call, Intervention/Enrichment Week. This is extra school days that are encouraged, but not required. Identified students for Intervention will enjoy smaller class sizes and interactive learning to help them meet their benchmarks. Students who are meeting/exceeding their benchmarkes are invited back for Enrichment classes like, Prehistoric Predators, Airways Science, etc. This is such a great week for our students and staff!


    We invite you to explore our website to learn more about our school!

  • Portland School Board Announces Interim Superintendent Finalist

    Today the Portland Public Schools Board of Education announced that it will vote tonight on the final candidate, Bob McKean, to serve as the Interim Superintendent of PPS for the 2016-17 school year while the board conducts a nationwide search for a permanent Superintendent to be in place before the following school year.
  • School Bus Schedules

    Portland Public Schools provides yellow bus service to students in Pre-Kindergarten through 8th grade, depending on the distance from school and other safety considerations. (High school students receive a TriMet bus pass from their school.) Because bus schedules are prone to changes, PPS is no longer mailing printed copies to students’ homes.
