I have had children attend Roadrunner Elementary since 2003. Pros: The school has a new principal who is visible and pleasant and they just hired an assistant principal. The campus has a new STEM building which has not yet been opened. The school offers band and orchestra. They also have family nights and a spring carnival. Cons: The academics are not challenging enough and I believe more homework should be assigned. Overall, it is a decent school.
Good school I had two kids here teacher work haher rcd with student! During Aims teacher review similar material in class. Teachers help kids with timing test, spelling and there on top of scores. Great school
We are two Roadrunner Students and we LOVE Roadrunner.WE Absolutaly Love our teachers Ms.Prine and Mrs.Anderson.Roadrunner Has a some before school activities like News Crew and Science program.We have 21'st century program after school. Over all this is a Wonderful school:)
I love this school for my daughter!! We moved from Albuquerque New Mexico and when she started atthis school she was at kinder level (She was at the end of 1st grade) When she finished in the Summer she was where she was supposed to be!!!
this school is good my girl has gone to this school from 2 nd grade to 6th grade and she3 loves it !!! but they need to give out more homework .
This is my updated review (1st in 2006). I still like the school and the teachers. My Daughter is in Miss Mariani's class this year and loves her teacher - and to me that is what makes a huge diference in a child's education. My daughter is motivated despite the load of homework she is getting this year (little to none homework from K to 2nd grade). I work with her every night on getting her home work done and that is what every parent should do if they want their child to secceed (instead of blaiming the teachers and the school for not providing with quality education). Miss Mariani has been great in comunicating with me. My daughter also loves Mrs Peterson - the Project Potential teacher and all the fun and very educational activities they do in her class. Only giving **** due to the lack of extraculicular activities.
This school has great teachers and great teachers to come i know. My daughter just loves it!
Teachers are great--but ELL really ruins the education for everyone else who can speak english-- They need seperate classes for all ELL and More $$ to fund it!!!
I have to say that this school has greatly disappointed me in regards to the level of education given to my son. He is in 6th grade and comes home w/ no homework from his teacher or from the gifted program teachers. I am informed that testing is going to take place for both regular and gifted program and nothing ever comes of it. It also seems that his teacher is more interested in playing games than teaching our children. I really wish that I would have known that it was this bad before I enrolled my son there.
The new kindergarten teachers there are great. My child loves her class.
Roadrunner is a good school with very caring teachers. I do wish more extracurricular activities were available, such as band and other arts programs.
Overall I'm pleased with the school & I don't have anything bad to say on the academics side except that I do believe that the kids should have PE more than once a week. My daughter is in Miss. Marianni 3rd grade class and absolutely loves her. My daughter takes lunch everyday & I noticed that she does not finish her lunch and when asked she said that the kids have to eat in a hurry. Thanks Veronika
The academic programs at Roadrunner have improved over the last year due to the hard work of the RCA program raising funds to bring back a full time music teacher. A new art teacher and other dedicated staff have made Roadrunner one of the most caring campuses I know.
Roadrunner provides an invironment where parents are encouraged to participate in the planning and direction of the school and it's programs. The staff is helpful and willing to maintain open communication with parents to assure the most productive environment for all students. For my son who has had behavioral problems, the staff has worked hard with me and my son to assure that he is in the best environment to encourage not only his accademic progress, but his behavioral progress as well. Even when I was only on campus a few times the past year the staff seemed to remember me and be genuinely interested in what was best for my kids.
Okay school. Needs to separate 'unruly' opionions of students and let kids be kids. Too many kids influenced by the outside and try to bring it to the school as in gangs attire etc. I love the Kindergarten teachers and the 4th grade.
Very attentive and caring staff. My son is having a wonderful learning experience.
It's not a great school but for the Washington elementary district it's not too painful...some of the staff are either befuddled by the sheer numbers of students or they just were not too bright to begin with..
