Celebrating the Legacy of Rosa Parks

Our name is The Rosa Parks School, and her legacy lives on in our programs and philosophy. Her strength, courage, and integrity are taught here at The Rosa Parks School on a daily basis. Having Rosa as our namesake is how our culture of leadership began. We teach our students to stand up for what is right even if they are standing alone. We teach them that an education will help them be strong, independent, and informed citizens in the 21st Century world. Every member of our school community and every student that graduates from our school will always hold a piece of Rosa Parks’ message in their hearts. She is a true American hero.

Student Council

P.S. 254 has an active Student Council. A representative is chosen from each fifth-grade class to run for a position. The election is held simultaneously with U.S. elections. The candidates are given an opportunity to write speeches and present their ideas to the student body. Every child gets an opportunity to vote for the candidate of their choice. The student council gets to experience leadership through presenting their ideas and those of their peers to the administration.
