The principle at the school is not someone who cares about children or the parents of the children.Her distain and condescending attitude towards parents and children at this school is atrocious.She llacks the knowledge to identify behavior in children that could be associated with a behavioral disorder. She continually used corporal punishment to disipline a child known to have ADHD as if you could paddle the ADHD out of the kid. Iinstead of addressing that this child had ADHD she worked with the child's noncustodial parent to get the child removed from the home of his primary parent based on the behavior the child was displaying due to his ADHD. Never did She hold a conference with the child's mother to discuss that the child should be referred to a behavioral health professional.She continued to give referrals and suspensions to a child who has nearly no control over his behavior.Suspension for the child was given without the primary custodial parent's concent or knowledge.This is not a school you want your child to attend if they have any behavior health issues or disability. If so, you will be considered and bad parent and may have your children taken away.
Rucker Blvd is everything that I hoped my children's school could be and more! I seriously love this school. The environment is safe, clean, fun, and of course educational. The teachers are outstanding, and they really, truly care about the well-being and success of my children. The only con that I can think of is that there is no gym, but that's really no big deal as that just means more outside time for the kids. There have been huge and outstanding improvements under the new principal, and with her in the lead I can easily see a new gym in the near future. The principal is outstanding and very down to earth. One of my children has extra behavioral needs that have cause some serious friction in past schools. But the current principal actually listens and focuses on the needs of the children and not just what's on paper. The building and grounds have also been greatly improved. My kids love RBE and it's safe to say that we consider ourselves a part of the RBE FAMILY!
My son loves going to school at Rucker Blvd Elementary. The principal has done great things since "taking office" in 2011. She is kind and understands the unique needs of military students. I've enjoyed open lines of communication both from office staff and my child's teachers. I appreciate that he is engaged in an active learning environment and encouraged to always do his best. I believe the small school size and low student - teacher ratio also make a difference. It may not be the newest or prettiest elementary school in Enterprise, but it IS the best!
I recently visited the school to volunteer in my child's classroom. We were constantly interupted by the principal making announcements. When asked how frequently this happens I was told way to often not to mention it was hard to understand what she was saying. There are other ways to get announcements out such as email or newsletters that do not interupt the child's learning. We accomplished half of what could have been accomplished. I am becoming more impressed by the teachers daily. They are working hard and really push the kids to the limits. On the other hand the way the principal runs things don't get me excited.
I have been very pleased with Rucker Blvd. My daughter has been challenged, not just given A's to appease the parents. I love the teachers and they have been wonderful communicating with me and putting up with my never ending concerns. We are planning to move to a new home in the next year and I am hoping to find a place to build where I can stay at this school. I would recommend this school. We have been here since 1st grade now in 4th. It has had it's bumps but you can't expect everything in life to be sugar coated. I would like to comment on the review about safety being number one. What is more important to you as a parent YOUR child being SAFE and in good hands or SMART??? Kind of a no brainer to me.
This school is among one of the best in Enterprise. Yes, our students to have to stay in for PE a lot but it is due to the high temperatures. There is no gym so the PE teachers do the best they can by providing exerise videos and having the students participate using the videos while inside. As for the schools cleanliness...other principals have brought custodians to RBE to see 'what a clean school looks like'. The school is currently under construction so things may seem out of sorts. Yes...safety is of great concern at RBE. Without your children feeling safe, no education will take place!!! As for the words of the principal...I was at the meeting and the below review took the words out of context.
I love this school. First off, I would like to say,with all the craziness of the world today, I appreciate the concern for the safety of my children by school faculty and staff. Second, there is no gym. When the weather is very hot or raining they stay inside. Yes, there is a large TV but they put on exercise videos and the kids have to paricipate. I see nothing wrong with that. I always feel welcome everytime I step in the building. Teachers have been great to my children and I thank them for that everyday.
I have been disappointed with the school. I have been trying to get good communication going with the school but it seems as though I keep getting put off. I am going to give it a little longer then I will make my decision. I agree that the school seems to just ignore the parents.
Love this school! A lot of one on one interactions with the students.
Hello, I have 2 children that go to Rucker Blvd, they have been there since they started school. There are some great teachers at Rucker Blvd, Mrs Caskey, Mrs. Taylor, Mrs. Slaughter, Mrs. Oliver, Mrs. Rhodes, and Mrs. Christy Hixson these are ladies that care about the kids in there class and make sure that you are always informed. I can say this because theses are the teachers that my children have had. I will say to any parent if you want to be informed let it be known in the beginning and don't back down.
My son has been going here for almost three years now. We love them! The teachers and other staff are so friendly and approachable. I also enjoy volunteering as much as possible in this wonderful environment.
This school is great and the teachers are good. I do have to agree with the person above. We need more newer technology in this school, along with more art and drama activities. Chiildren need to learn through being invovled
My son has attended Rucker Blvd two going on three years now. I have always been impressed with his teachers and their dedication to him. I am concerned with the lack of computer training and art programs and overall test scores for the school. My son has always been above average and frankly the average SAT test scores for the remainder of the school have me concerned. I highly recommend this school, its teachers, and Ms. Dubose (Principal)despite that. They are truly dedicated to the children.
