My kids go here. Pulled them from another school to attend the leadership academy that Rainbow Valley offers. Amazing school and staff. It feels like a big, wonderful family.
Everyone is kind and helpful. Students open doors for each other and everyone makes eye contact and says hello. The school recently became a Leadership Academy and it shows. Students are making a difference in the community. I am proud to say that I have children attending this school.
Dr. Cagle is an excellent principal!! Also, the teaching staff is kind and works well together as a team! The office staff is calm, sensible, helpful, and kind. The school balances firm, fair, and consistent discipline procedures and expectations with rigorous curriculum and high AIMS expectations. Wonderful school!
my view and rating of this school has changed dramatically. all 4 of my girls graduated at rainbow however, my girls did not have any disabilities. however my son does and i am shocked/frustrated and saddend at the difference in treatment and assistance between they way the school treated my girls with no disabilities to the way they treat my son with disabilities. we have asked for help and an IEP plan for our son however, they simply do not want to pay the extra money and time to develop the IEP I as a parent feel that the school does not put my sons needs and best interest infront of their finacial status. please if you have a child with disabilities make sure you look deep into what is best for your child.
both of my kids went to RVE and we moved to Mandan ND. After dealing with the schools here, I regret taking my kids away from the great principal, the teachers. The more you read the smarter you'll get! my kids will never forget that. I am now home schooling my son and am thinking about home schooling my daughter. Wish I could move some of the staff up here so they can show the teachers here in Mandan how it is done :)
My son is currently attending, and my daughter graduated from RVE. WOW! What an outstanding principal, Dr. Cagle, is! He leads by example in every aspect. His interaction with the children, teachers, and staff amazes me. I can't say enough about the wonderful teachers this school has. They truly care and have always welcomed parent involvement. They openly communicate and answer any questions a parent might have. The staff is terrific. They always greet you in a friendly manner and are so helpful. I love this school and what it encompasses.
This is such a great school. The teachers and staff greet the majority of the students by their first names, regardless if the kids are their students. My kids, Gio and Stevan, always have the best to talk about their teachers. They tell me alot of funny stories about the principal, Mr. Cagle, so this lets me know, he makes it a point to interact with the students. Great School.
This is a great school. They have the best staff a parent could ask for. How many principles know each child by first name. Ours does. He is great with the children and they all love him. The teachers care about each student and give each one the care they need. The office staff is outstanding. They know each child, parent and even siblings that do not attend the school just yet. As a parent, when I send my child to school, I know they are safe and well cared for. We are lucky to have such a wonderful school. Thank you Staff at Rainbow Valley Elem.
I had 3 children that attended this school. I feel for the most part the teachers are there for the kids, they learn alot and are given the opportunity to learn. I loved the RTC program. The school truely believes in giving the kids a chance to learn. I would highly recommend this school to anyone.
I believe that the music, art, PE, Computer and library classes are a great benefit and a necessity to our children. This courses and activities promise a well rounded education. So many of these subjects lead to promising careers that many people never really associate with Art or PE. Careers such as architecture, engineering, drafting and construction trades. Art in various mediums is a terrific outlet for our childrens emotional well being also. These courses are important to a childs well rounded education.
I like the low teacher/student ratio. The Teachers seem to care for the kids and want them to succeed.
I think the school is a good one. They just need more extra things for children of all grades to join in, such as more athletics or extracurricular things, field trips, fund raisers, dances even for the young ones to bring more money in for the school also. Invite Radio Disney to come in for the younger crowds. There is no incentive. My child has gone there since the school has opened and there really hasn't been much to give the kids outside the school. There needs to be more excitement. Something that draws the kids to want to come and have a good time. I think the school is really good in teaching respect and discipline and safety. I think they are improving on academics for the children who need that special attention to keep them moving ahead. Overall I like the school. I like the staff and how they greet you in the mornings by waving. The school tries to work with you in any way they can.
