Van ISD inspires and prepares all students to be successful in a rapidly changing world.

Welcome to J.E. Rhodes Elementary where we have a faculty and staff that are second to none! We have a team that is dedicated to helping all children reach their full potential.

We are committed to a partnership with the parents of our students and the members of our community in preparing our students academically and socially for a successful future. We have created a positive learning environment and offer quality instruction in every classroom to assure that each of our students is successful in developing a strong foundation in reading, writing, and math. We also serve as role models for our students to encourage them to make good choices and develop a strong work ethic to become successful adults with a desire for lifelong learning.

We welcome you to visit us at JER to participate in one of our many school activities, eat with your child, volunteer in a classroom, or visit our Parent Resource Room. At JER you are always WELCOME!
