8/24/2011parentI have a nine year old and a six year old at Rhodes. Eventhough I had just transfered my children to this school on January of 2011. Everybody was really nice to me and my children, making it a lot easier for my children to adapt. I am very greatful for "Rhodes" because it's a safe environment . I'm looking forward to this coming school year. Gooo Rhodes!
1/16/2011parentMy son has been attending Rhodes since 2009 as a kindergartener and he is currently in 1st grade. We both love the teachers, the students, and the other moms. I feel very comfortable with his safety and education. Any problems I have had in the past, has been taken care of in a timely manner and been resolved. Although they have had different principals in the past few years, they've always shown care and concern for my son, as well as the other students. My son has improved his reading, writing, math, etc. skills. His teacher always has time to talk to me regarding my son's education, and gave me advice of what to do to help him advance. I am truly happy that my son is able to attend Rhodes and I know he will be receiving the best education in town!
10/30/2010parentThe staff is WONDERFUL! From the Principal to the teachers, office staff, and PEP club (our version of the PTA) everyone truly cares about your child and helping to give them every ounce of support they need to learn. The school spirit is incredible and parents are willing to help everywhere you turn from fundraising to classroom time. It truly is a community school.
8/24/2010parentLove this school!! Great staff!! I really love how they encourage parent involvement! We are looking forward to starting a great new school year with Rhodes!
7/14/2010parentI was highly disappointed after all of the "hype" I heard about the school.They had three different principals last year. They had a real "it's our way or the highway" attitude towards parent concerns and complaints. Hope things are better after the new principal starts next year.
5/7/2010parentRhodes rules!!! They have the best kids, teachers and staff!
5/3/2010parentEverything, and more that you could ask for in a school! Feels more like a private school than public. Great collegiate theme & school spirit!

4/27/2010parentThe teachers, th curriculum the approach. Everything is designed around the students excellence. Rhodes assumes all students are capable of excelling so they create an atmosphere where students can do just that.
4/27/2010parentI live in Oklahoma. I have access to everything the school is doing by the web site. The web site posts pictures of activities that all the children are involved in and makes it easy to see a grandchild evolving through learning at an excellent school with an above and beyond curriculum. When I am in California, I visit the school each time. I am so amazed at how the teachers are passing information and learning to the children through many different channels. It makes me want to go back to school and have an education, while enjoying learning. The children are all engaged in the classrooms
4/27/2010parentRemarkable school offering challenging curriculum to students combined with creative and fun activities the we all love! Faculty goes above and beyond expectation.

4/27/2010parentAs a parent and an employee of Rhodes and having been there since it opened I feel qualified to say that I have never seen a more dedicated staff or group of parents. The overall collegieate theme of the school is an incredible way to promote children going to college after high school. I have been truly blessed to be a part of this incredible school.
4/27/2010parentVery enthusiastic teachers and a wonderful GATE magnet program.
4/27/2010parentThe academic challenges, curriculum, & goals the teachers provide for the students. This school really recognizes the students on their achievements! Rhodes Elementary is a great school.
4/26/2010parentThey use multiple intelligences to teach different types of learner. They incorporate theater and music in the curriculum. They listen to different types of music during lunch. They have the library open for kids to read at lunchtime- they also have a game room for them to play pingpong and board games at lunch. They have 'grad classes' where different people come and teach them various things from karate, ceramics, Indian dancing, juggling, CSI stuff, drawing, and singing- at the end they have a performance day where they can show what they learned. The kids get 'scholarships' when teachers 'catch' them doing good things- walking instead of running in certain areas, being good at the Monday morning assembly, throwing trash away, helping collect balls after recess. Every Monday morning they have a school assembly to bring all students together as a community and have the announcements (not over the intercom) which instill a sense of belonging together. Each classroom is a University and the mascot is a rolled up diploma called 'Rhodie'. In Feb. a dinner banquet (or dessert first occasion if budget is tight) and medals are given - gold, silver and bronze depending on how each child scored on the test. The Scholars walk down a red carpet, in a spotlight while their name is read. Visit our school website to see pictures of the whole array of extras our teachers and staff have for the kids- yearly links to pictures are on the left side of the home page. www.edwinrhodes.groupfusion.net The PEP Club is the PTA- everything is collegiate, so the kids have early exposure to higher education. They bring in pompons to the Monday morning meetings and sing the school song. This school does more than just teach the kids, they instill a sense of community and a love of learning and a desire for higher education. It is truly amazing and the kids Llove their school! Please visit the website to get an idea of how different this school is. We currently have the highest score in the county. However, due to budget cuts it is getting harder and harder to continue many of these programs, and the level of programs and opportunities for these kids is going down. The money would go a long way to helping continue the success!
4/26/2010parentRhodes is such an awesome school! The teachers, staff and parents are so dedicated to helping these kids get the best education possible...they make learning so much fun!

5/31/2008parentMy child attends Rhodes, and I have been an active member in this school for five years. The collegiate theme, along with their belief that all children are gifted, is unique and engaging. isirefreshinencouraging encouraging the students
2/29/2008parentMy children have been at Rhodes since it opened and each year the school takes large steps further in its advancement. My children are proud of their school and their acheivement. The parents turn out to support the school and the teachers and administrators step-up to the expectations we as parents expect for our children. Great School!
2/1/2008otherI am not a parent of any of the children at Rhodes but I am a substitute for the Chino District and have had the opportunity to sub at Rhodes. I was blown away by the expectations at this school. The staff is amazing there and the students are so determined to do well! If I had children, I'd enroll them at Rhodes in a heart beat! ~Substitute teacher~
7/10/2006parentI am grateful every single day that my children have an opportunity to attend Rhodes Elementary. The teachers are very dedicated and invested in every aspect of making the classroom and school great. Our kids get to experience things like gardening, dance team, track, plays and productions. Every year the kids get a week of enrichment classes offered on subjects like France, the rainforest, animation or flag twirling. The kids love this and the classes open up their world beyond the standard curriculum. Our Principal is a wonderful leader, sets high standards for staff, student and parent involvement. Her expectations are clear and the staff, students and parent community rise to meet them. We also have very dedicated and involved parents. It is nice to be involved and do your part to make school great for the kids when the leadership is solid and the goals clear.
4/26/2006parentThis school is top notch. Teachers have very savvy teaching techniques. Parent participation is extraordinary.
4/25/2005parentSchool opened Sep 2003 and is still evolving. Excellent, enthusiastic teaching staff makes extra effort to offer enrichment opportunities (dance, drama, gardening, etc.) and attend campus events on their own time (parent meetings, family nights, etc.). Extracurriculars include band (5th/6th), choir (5th), noon league sports (4th/5th/6th), Chess Masters, Chinese school, Art Masters, music classes, student government. Parent involvement is mediocre (low meeting turnout, limited support of fundraising, hard to get room parents). Academic focus is on state standards and improving test scores. Discipline emphasizes respect for self, others, property. School is home to district's GATE magnet program; however, magnet program curriculum does not differ appreciably from regular curriculum and there is no program-wide focus or philosophy.
3/31/2005parentMy husband and I are very happy with Rhodes Elementary. This is the second year the school has been opened and it just keeps getting better! The parents are awesome, the staff is the hardest working group I have seen, and the Principal has her heart in everythiung thing she does!
9/16/2004parentIt is hard to believe this is a PUBLIC school! The teachers, principal, and staff are all dedicated to helping our children excel. The school is geared for higher educational achievements and our students are the benefactors. Finally there is a school that really believes in teaching our children not just going through the motions.
7/27/2004parentRhodes Elementary has a wonderful program for students of all academic levels. The teachers are very dedicated and work very hard to endure the best education that is available.
5/28/2004parentRhodes Elementary is a wonderful school based on a collegiate theme. The classrooms are named after colleges, teachers are called professors and the principal dean. All GATE classes were transferred to Rhodes. The principal has a lot of energy and is completely involved with her teachers and students. They stress academics, have quarterly awards, and have many extracurricular activities. The students are well behaved and the teachers are excellent. I would recommend this school to everyone. I talked to many parents who told me that since transferring to this school their child has done a complete turnaround. I have done my homework, and this is the best elementary school in Chino and any of the surrounding cities.
