Four stars for the elementary school and two for the middle school, and thus my overall of three stars. This is not a good school for kids with learning disabilities. The school is stuck in the mode of needing to keep up with test scores and state curriculum mandates, so there is not a lot of room for any sort of individualized learning. Unfortunately, I suppose that is true of many schools in this state. That being said, all is mostly good until you get to the middle school, where the kids are not provided with any sort of interesting or new curiculum, nor given much direction on the subjects that are being taught, yet are held to rigid standards without being given much guidance on how to attain them.
My children love learning and as a result they are doing well in school. The teachers and the administrators are excellent and responsive to our needs. Roy Cloud includes parent volunteers consistently. Most impressive is that their test scores rival that of neighboring Northstar which requires high test scores for admission. Roy Cloud educates all-comers to nearly the same standard. If you want to know your children's friends, be included in the education process and feel a part of a wonderful community, Roy Cloud is the school for you!
This school started with a great foundation and has only dramatically improved since Greg Land became the new principal bringing effective differentiation in math and reading, which has led to a great math program. This had led more parents to want to keep their kids at R. Cloud instead of sending to N. Star which does not have the advanced math approach.
Excellent school!!Great teachers, Great kids , Great academics, all around great school!!!
The principal, Greg Land, loves this school and the students in it. I have been very happy with the level of education that my three kids have been receiving at Roy Cloud, and the volunteer participation is top notch.
Outstanding school with caring and hard-working teachers, and dedicated parent community!
Roy Cloud has a wonderful group of parents and teacher who work together for the kids. The PTA has been working hard to subsidize programs for the kids that would have been eliminated by the State budget cuts. The school grounds are lovely, every child at Roy Cloud can feel proud to say 'that's my school!'
A true community and neighborhood school. Warm, kind and helpful atmosphere.
They have fabulous, caring, charismatic teachers! And they have a new, energetic principal that listens to parents and cares very much for his school. Our test scores and happy students exemplify the schools values and goals and their accomplishments towards them.
The teachers Rock! And the PTA works hard to support after school enrichment programs.
Roy Cloud has some of the best teachers in the District. It also fosters an excellent environment for our children.
The teachers are the very best! And their communications with the parent community is second to none.
Roy Cloud is a wonderful school thanks to dedicated teachers/administrators and very involved parents. Lots of extras (tutoring, music, drama, art, family fun nights, etc.) both during and outside of school.
We have wonderful teachers who are concerned about our childrens' education & well-being. They are also easy to contact & discuss our concerns w/.
The school has tremendous amount of school spirit and the teachers and prinipal are awesome and always looking for ways to improve the school.
My daughter transferred there for 4th grade and has been really happy from day 1! The teachers and the principal really care about our kids! My daughter has just started 6th grade this year I am very impressed so far with how organized her teachers are. The students are already learning practical life lessons about time management and study skills--in addition to the required academic curriculum--that they will be able to use the rest of their lives. The number of out-of-the-classroom experiences the students are exposed to are amazing (art, music, science, technology, etc)! The parents are very supportive and there is a real feeling of community within the school. I've had so much fun getting to know other families and the teachers. Roy Cloud is a great place to get a solid education and have fun while doing it.
Roy Cloud is truly a community. The children, staff, and parents care about one another, and work together for the sake of the children. There is a high level of respect for education, people, and property.
Mr. Land always has a smile on his face and all of the teachers are absolutely fantastic with the kids.
Roy Cloud goes through 8th grade which is HUGE! We have a GREAT new Pricipal and wonderful Teachers!
