E. Washington Rhodes Elementary School 

Be Respectful, Be Responsible, & Be Safe



Let’s continue the legacy of Eugene Washington Rhodes, (1895-1970), who was an editor, publisher, and general manager of the Philadelphia Tribune through supporting the education of all students.

It is our goal here at E.Washington Rhodes Elementary to provide a safe, nurturing, and academically challenging program for all children. We foster a welcoming school environment for our parents/guardians, students, and staff.  It is our duty to educate our students with the appropriate grade level content through meaningful tasks that will result in authentic student learning. Our students will also learn the importance of responsibility, cooperation, and to treat everyone with respect and dignity.

Join our partnership. Feel free to ask questions of teachers, staff and administration. Attend our school wide events and scheduled parent/guardian meetings.  Share your thoughts and ideas. We are committed to building a trusting relationship with The E.W.Rhodes School Community by working together.
