Sometimes a school does well because its got everything going for it: higher social economic neighborhood/families, highly involve parents (many stay-at-home parents) and a number of factors. So it can be easy to judge a school or blame teachers when the school isn't meeting the same standards as other surrounding cities. But Rorimer is an amazing school, especially when its got almost everything going against it: lower socioeconomic neighborhood, two working parents for most every student, and minimal parental involvements. Despite all that, Rorimer has exceptional teachers who set high academic and moral standards for their students. And the results are in their test scores and student grades. It's easy to give credit to schools that have everything going for them. But Rorimer deserves WAAYY more credit than it is given.

I was extremely fortunate to have my daughter in the dual immersion program. I am amazed to see everything she learned! She not only learned how to read in spanish but is able to translate! It is extraordinary for me to see how much she learned in one year. I only wish they would have offered this program when my other children went to kindergarten. Being truly bilngual will open many more doors for my daughter in her future. I highly reccommend this program!

I am a parent and I'm disapointed on our son's academics prgress. This school stands behind their bilingual program which made our son way behind in his english learning.He had to go to summer school due to this program made him so confused.Not happy. Would not recommend this program.

I am a parent sending my son to the district's special ed dept. The teachers have great experience with special needs children. In a span of 6 months, my son has rocketed its learning abilities. He has tripled his vocabularies, has increased expressive and receptive language, has improved his articulation that has significantly decreased his tantrums and meltdowns because he can now express his wants and needs with minimal prompts. People who used to complain of my son's laidback behavior has seen huge difference in him and is now praising him for all good works he's done. Our special thanks to the school's very dedicated psychologist Ms. Maria Amorim, my son's teacher America Arana, and his Speech Therapist Sean Humphrey. Three outstanding reason why we are staying with the school district....the best educational staffs they've ever got.

The fourth grade classroom that I have seen at work is excellent. The support that the teachers and staff members have with the parents is excellent

Rorimer is a great school. The staff is very friendly and makes you feel comfortable. They have many programs to help children deal with many issues in life. They are very concerned about the children's well being I love Rorimer. My son has gone to Rorimer for 4 years.

I have a child who is in the fifth grade at Rorimer Elementary School. I am extremely pleased with his progress and his enthusiasm for school. He talks about his teacher all the time and how she makes learning fun. He talks about the different projects she has the class do and how he has fun in class. I hope next year is just as enjoyable for him.

My child came from another district. When he came to Rorimer he was below grade level. I never saw a school provide such excellent teachers and programs. Before too long, my child was doing great thanks to Rorimer School.

When I took my first look at this school, I was a bit shaken. It was old looking and the surrounding area was not the best. Much to my surprise, once my son began attending, it became obvious that the teachers were very dedicated and they kept the children interested in education. The staff was very competent and by the end of the year I was sold. My experience with Rorimer was pleasant.
