This is the only public middle school where I have seen them trying to get the kids involved with STEM. Theirs extra curricular science programs are spectacular!

I am currently a student at RMS and I love it here! All the teachers bring fun and laughter to learning, especially the after school programs like robotics and science Olympiad that not only bring fun competition but make us think about what is going around in our world and what we could do to fix problems. In the 6th grade I was in Berkeley last year I was in Stanford and this year I'm in Georgetown I love all my teachers so much ! Sometimes it is hard to find a favorite teacher but my avid teacher this year is by far my favorite she is always there for me and all her students even for kids she doesn't have whenever I need to talk she listens and gives me great advise I'm gonna miss her so much!:( so if you are a parent reading this send your child to will roger middle school not Jane adams

My child attends Rogers Middle School. I find the academic program outstanding and the administration actively involved with students and parents. My child is eager to attend school each day and is offered many opportunities especially the after school program and the science programs. I feel Rogers Middle school is a great academic environment for my child.

I am currently a student of RMS, and I feel that it's the best school ever! I'm in Team Harvard and all my classes are honors! I feel a lot of freedom even though I know I'm being checked. It's really fun! Great activities and the best teachers ever.... they even have great lunch food, lol. Every kid here has a GREAT sense of style, and no one this year has a GPA lower than 2.5, but mine stands at 3.9! So if you're reading this.... to answer your question if you're a parent, bring your child to this school. Very safe and very friendly. Your child will definitely like/love this school. Your child will learn a lot.... bring your child to this school!

This is my second year at Rogers, i started going there in the sixth grade. I think the school has really improved over the years and will continue to improved. band and sports programs have also continued to improve. the school does a really good job with what is given to them. the school has really been working on trying to improve their test scores so hopefully this year we will all do really good and make them proud.

Definetly not the best school in the district. Students are not treated the way I'd expect them to be treated at other schools. A couple of the teachers seemed as though they needed to retire. My child said they were having a problem with them, when I came in for a confernce, I expected them to put on the nice act for me at least. But, they treated me very disrespectfully. This has never happened before.

I think Roger's teachers are doing the best they can with what they have been given. At the beginning of the 2006-2007 school year, my daughter didn't even have her books in some of her classes until the 4th and 5th week of school. In general, the teachers I have encountered have been very kind and involved with my daughter. Regarding communication, I have my phone calls returned by her teachers within a day or two, which is good.

This school is the best. The teachers are the best and so are the campus supervicers. This is school is now a 6th-8th grade school now. It is my first time here as a 6th grader and we do compations during lunch and during school against other teams and they are the funnist.

Hi, I would just like to say that rogers middle school was an excellent school. Now only were the teachers great, but the administration was, in my mind, better than anyone would expect, since it is located in lawndale. I attended school there my 7th and 8th grade year, and with their help (the teachers), I was able to graduate with a 3.9 Gpa, all honors, and all a's on my report card. The elective classes their were also excellent. I was involved in the band program both years and with the help of ron segovia, me and my classmates had a total of 14 songs and about 10 performances. I would recommend this school to anyone!

There was a lack of communication in assisting my child with her education, when I called for parent teacher conferences only half or less than half of her teachers would show up and the ones that did show up did not bring in theirs books to show actual recorded grades. I asked for progress reports and when there were problems assitance was not given. Academically this school is not a good educational school..

The academic programs have improved this school year (2005-2006)and the school district is really working with the children to help improve standardized test scores. The school has a music program, but no sports program. Parents are involved to a degree. I am not able to attend the PTA because the majority of the meetings are at 3:00 pm, the middle of my workday.

Low quality due to overcrowding and large class size. Music and sports are available but the educational enviroment is not as it should be.

I use to be a substitute here at Rogers. this is a very unsafe school.Some teachers do not care about the students and the students talk back which is unaccepitable. So I would recommend not sending your child here if you want them to have a good education.

I feel the communication is really lacking at this school. The teachers that I've had contact seem very uninterested in responding to my requests in helping them to help my child get the most from his school experience. My child didn't get books in some of the classes until three weeks into session. The school seems very unsafe and has the appearance of a lock-down facility. There is no communication regarding discipline issues - except what my son chooses to tell me - and I don't find out he's having trouble in a subject until report cards come out and it's too late to help him catch up.

In the midst of transition, turmoil and facing 'real life' challenges, our family received a truly personalized approach from the teachers and staff at Rogers, who provided much-needed resources, referrals and guidance in dealing with a troubled teen.

My son attended this school both years (7th and 8th grade). The teachers need to communicate better with the parents. If they are having a problem with a student misbehaving then speak with the parent before sending them to the Dean or Principal. They also need to let the students know they care and want to help them learn. In Language Arts and Math the teachers need to teach the students things that will help test scores on the SAT. Lastly, the counselors need to listen to students, parents and teachers when placing students in the different classes. Any child can learn anything if they are taught.

The school seems to be an ok school. The problem I have with the school is that the kids do not have lockers to store there books from other classes. They have to go around and carry all these folders and books from other classes all day long. Money should be invested into building some lockers for the kids.

This school needs money. The teachers are great, but they don't have the supplies to teach properly. In some classes we don't have enough desks to sit in, so we stand. It's appalling.
