I had 3 children that all attended Roynan. If you are grooming your First grader to go to Harvard, this is probably not the school for you. If you would like to see your child develop in to a tolerant , compassionate,inclusive human being who is successful because of character as well as academics, you have come to the right place. Two of my children have gone in to the medical field and are extremely comfortable with people of all races,abilities and walks of life. Roynan gave them a great start.

I moved my daughter to Roynon and she has been striving for the last two years The teachers care and understand I have not had any problems thus far Awesome school.

GO ROYNON RACOONS! I absolutely love Roynon. My oldest just started second grade and I just couldn't ask for more. Teachers truly care and always go out of their way (and pockets) to ensure the best quality of education. I will forever be greatful for the wonderful experience they've blessed my son with. THANK YOU ROYNON!

Roynon takes the time to nurture our kids, not just educationally but artistically as well. Roynon isn't just a school environment, it's a family!!

My daughter is in Kindergarten at Roynon and has had a fanastic year! Her teacher is amazing. She continually meets the needs of all of her students at all of their various levels in a happy, fun and very musical approach. I see the principal and vice principal often on campus talking and even playing with the students. I am always given a warm smile from all staff. I rate Royonon excellent!! Go Racoons!!

Every week there is a problem with the School lunch, they seem to run out of food quite a bit, and the employee's seem to be very rude to the Children, have called the district many of times, but nothing ever gets fixed, very disappointed.

I have two children attending Roynon. Everyone here is excited to be here. The teachers are living in this community and it shows. This is a committed group of educators and no matter where I live my children will see Roynon through to their graduations.

It has been a wonderful experience for my girls at Roynon. The staff, the teachers, the daycare, and the PTA helped my girls blossom.

This school has been a big disappointment, although it is probably fine for most kids, my third grader needs accelerated learning opportunities. Which have not been available. I am finding that the teachers just can t/won t take the time out to create a curriculum for the advanced students. The teachers and the school in general needs revamping. Monique Cain

This school was at one time a well led school with high expectations for student behavior. The administration clearly provides little to no support to their teachers in dealing with, correcting, or changing negative student behavior.

The Principal and staff at this school are outstanding. They have the best activities for kids I've ever seen at an elementry.I see the teachers at the school at all hours on their own time because they care and go the extra mile for my kids.

The lunch program is a problem. Many things are handled unprofessionally by the administration...seems like they are overwelmed with the amount of students at the school, and just dont have the skills needed to deal with the situations at hand. Many situations are handled poorly.

My children have really enjoyed their years at Roynon. The teacher are very dedicated, often working late hours, and they have plenty of activities. I would like to see the GATE program continue to inprove, though.

I have been very happy with my daughter's first experience at Roynon. She had a wonderful Kindergarten teacher who went above and beyond in all the activities she provided for her students. The teacher had high expectations and worked to help all her students meet the standards. Students were transitioned into a full day of school which allowed for the teacher to provide experiences in art, music and movement. The school has a very involved and supportive PTA which provides added materials and activities for all students.

Roynon is a welcoming place with teachers who truly care about their students. Second and thrid grade students receive music training in the school's piano lab and all students use computers, in the lab and in classrooms. Reading is a high priority for all grade levels.

The quality of the academic programs at Roynon are excellent. The availability of extracurricular activities is limited. Music is somewhat available during the regular school day. No Art programs or after school sports. A Math Club was there and was very popular and successful. As a parent I was very involved with volunteering in the classroom for 5 years.

My daughters are in the 1st and 3rd grades a Roynon Elementary. I am pleased with the school so far, however, I feel that my daughters are not being adequately challenged. Both of their teachers are very nice. My third-grader's teacher is very active and requests a lot of parent involvement for programs that only her class participate in.

As a parent with three kids in the school, I have found that the school provides an excellent environment and education for a public school. As a room volunteer I see the dedication of the teachers; as a PTA volunteer I realize that more parent involvement could enhance the program. Many of the teachers are very creative and provide interesting activities and projects. The K-2 teachers are very developmental with lots of fun hands on activities for learning. The principal is very nice and committed to improving the school and student body. Character development is of a high priority, is taught as a subject, and a school counselor is on site.

My son attended kindergarten and half of first grade, and my daughter attended half of kindergarten before we moved to a different district. The education and caring of the teachers at Roynon is unsurpassed. The school they were transferred to was known to be a high scoring school, but in the semester my first grader was there he learned nothing and was held back. We moved back into the area and both kids are currently in second grade at Roynon and I am nothing short of pleased with the school,but most of all I am overwhelmed with joy for the teachers here are second to none!
