I am a single mom and I have had 3 children attend Rincon middle school. It has its up's and down's like any other school! I believe it should improve more in Bullying and more supportive with teacher's staff and anyone else who is involved in the school. I think teacher's should help children more when children ask question's...children should be able to raise their hands and ask questions and get a response from the teacher's instead of the teacher's thinking that the kids already know the answer! My youngest son will be attending Rincon for the first time, and I want him to feel comfortable to attend this school! Furthermore, if I feel that my son is not getting the help or anything negative happen's to him, I will seek out information with the possibility of a transfer!

My three daughters graduated from Rincon Middle School. The school is staffed by incredible teachers. They go "above and beyond" to ensure that each student receives a quality education. My experience with Rincon also includes numerous visits as a guest teacher. I always receive thorough and professional "sub plans" from teachers at Rincon. Another great facet of Rincon is the annual events for each grade level. Don't let anyone tell you differently; Rincon is a great school!

While many day this school is over crowded, this fact is only true because many students come here from other schools. Schools such as Del Dios are what you would call an "improvement school" which means that their schools have dropped in test scores and have not made any improvement in their education whatsoever. So with this, many students who have been to del Dios have the choice to move to a better school, regardless of their address. Many students from their come to Rincon and that is why it has been called "overcrowded". Btw the algebra program is FANTASTIC and mrs Peterson is one of the best teachers I have EVER had.

My husband and I attended this school. In fact it is were we met and eventually got engaged. We had amazing teachers always willing to go above and beyond. Some of them still work here even after 15 years :) We eventually want our children to attend.

Rincon Middle School is such a great school. The prncipal, Mr. Centofranchi is the best. All of the teachers I've had were awesome. Their are some extra activities like sports, garden club and such. Parents are involved a lot like at Parent Lunch days. RMS also has a great disipline system, they use infractions. Overall it's a great school

Everyday I wanted to go to school when I began to go to RMS. Although some people say it's overcrowded, I'm a student and should know; it is not overcrowded, matter of fact, there are diverse people to get along with. So, if you do not like a group of people, you can go try to be friends with another. The school I go to now has cliques; RMS doesn't have that. The teachers there are wonderful, especially Mrs. Anderson (6th Grade)! She cares about her students. However, not only is she wonderful, but all of the teachers at the school are phenomenal. I got advanced in all of the categories on the STAR testing. Also, I got straight A's in my time being there. Overall, this school is probably the best school in the entire county if you want to make your child have a smile on their face!

i definantly think this school is good. It pays attention to all attributes and offers a great diversity when it comes to 'exploratory' classes. I went to this school and i think it was great and very diverse.

Overall a good school. You can tell the teachers really care about their students. My only challenge with any school is that the responsiblity for total communication is placed on the students. I receive my monthly newsletter from Rincon 3/4 of the way through the month! It is frustrating. We, and I include myself, need to be better communicating in order to help our students. The GATE program is wonderful and they even have meetings to better inform the parents. My son has an IEP. The special ed department is excellent and inclusive. Great job! - Wendy Rose

I am not very impressed with this school at all. Teachers are not the go getters one might hope for in terms of caring and going the extra mile. Ccertainly do not own up to their Mission Statement (found on their website) hat is for sure. Teachers do not respond to parent inquiries and it must be an accepted event because I have the same problem with my son's teachers this year as last.

Overall, I think that Rincon is a good school. The only problem that I can see is that not all teachers have a website for their students. As parents we all care about our childrens education and being able to view our child's progress on a weekly basis is the basis for passing or failing. Being able to see the assignments that have not been turned in or comments on our childrens behavior greatly increases the parents knowledge of what is going on. Lets face it ~ is a child going to show a parent a grade sheet with half the assignments missing? These days a lot of children have parents that are divorced, with a website both parents will know what it going on.

My daughter is enrolled at Rincon Middle School. There should be no blame on the information we receive as a parent. It is the responsibility of the young adult to bring scheduled events, projects, ECT. Back to the parent, Rincon is one of the best schools and cares for their children. As for parents, it is your fault for not speaking to your children. For Rincon the teaching ability continues to grow. Good job!

I must say I'm pleased overall with Rincon's effort. I do agree we must be better informed. I find everything out last minute. However over all the teachers for 6th grade are great and have made my daughter feel comfortable. Now with a district change I may be forced to send my daughter to Del Dios. So I feel the district is taking away my choice as a parent to have my child attend an overall safe school, and also set her back with the education she recieves...so I have to say Rincon, Mrs. Leiber, Mr Winn, Mrs. Campbell and Mr. Grovem, thank you for helping my child greatly and putting a smile on her face.

I believe that Rincon Middle School's teachers are absolutely wonderful. I am thinking of one in particular, Mr.Welch. Often has my daughter come home telling me how much he taught her. She has never done that before, and while she was in his class her grades went up to A's, and B's. All in all, I believe Rincon is a great school, and i'm glad I could participate in its achievements.

My daughter is enrolled at Rincon. I have to be honest. I am not impressed with the school. Last year on 3 different occasions I met with teachers and counselor. They told me not to worry because they give out progress reports before report cards. Three times my daughter came home with failing grades. Her mother and I are divorced. Mom doesn't give any effort. I am 50 miles away. I call every day. On friday I check for homework and study the best I can with her.M y point is this. If the progression is going down then why wasn't I notified? If I was aware I could help. I put blame on the teachers and counselors for not keeping us informed.
