“To this day I believe we are here on the planet Earth to live, grow up and do what we can to make this world a better place for all people to enjoy freedom.”
– Rosa Parks
Rosa Parks is an Environmental Science Magnet school in the Berkeley Unified School District in Berkeley California. Equipped with a science lab, on-site garden, and dedicated, professional and talented faculty and staff, students at Rosa Parks benefit from a curriculum enriched with access to science and nature.
A nurturing community where all families are welcome, we celebrate diversity and honor culture. Cooperation, not competition, is a constant theme. Children learn to respect themselves, each other, and the Earth.
