The location of the school being on top of a hill makes it hard in the winter to get to. But the teachers there are great. My boys love this school and I as a parent think it is a good school. My kids are learning so much. This school does a lot of family things. I kept my kids there even after moving away from the school.

Mediocre at best as you can see if you look at their test scores. Communication between the staff and the parents leaves a lot to be desired. I am currently looking into alternatives before my child is so far behind we will never be able to catch up. This is the most frusterating situation I have ever been in. My son's teacher is so quick to to put a NO on his daily chart, but won't tell us what exactly the no's mean. We can wait an hour and a half to have a discussion with her then we always get interupted by other parents. If there is a problem tell us what it is and let us find a solution but if there is no communication how are we supposed to fix it? This is the first year my son has dreaded going to school. He is intimidated by his teacher who never fails to call him out infront of the entire class. It all makes sense now that I have found the test score percentages.

We came from a different school district in Colorado Springs and it was horrible! Since moving to Rudy my child has done much better and I like the school and teachers.

Rudy has great leadership and the teachers are highly competent. When you go into the school the staff and it seems like most of the kids are smiling which I always see as a good sign.

My son attended Rudy for kindergarten and first grade before we moved north to D-20. I regret that he is no longer in D-11; Rudy had very welcoming office staff, great teachers, and an overall wonderful atmosphere. The curriculum at his current school has thus far proved far less challenging than what he was doing even in kindergarten at Rudy. I cannot recommend Rudy enough.

Our son went to 4th grade and is now attending 5th. His 5th grade teacher is Outstanding. She is communicative and also listens to how we want our son to be taught. Our son has highly-functioning autism, and the staff has been very accommodating. They have a 'helper' who sits with him during most of the day to keep him on task. We have been very happy with the progress our son has made over the last 2 years. The science teacher at Rudy is exceptional! She really gets the kids excited about what they're doing! The children are well-behaved, and there is little fighting or bullying. The card system is used for discipline (pick a yellow, orange, or red card if you misbehave).

My son attended Rudy for five years and I was completely satisfied with his academic progress. The teachers at Rudy challenge their students to achieve their personnel best.

My kids come home excited about what they learned and what they did that day. They voluntarily spill out all sorts of things on the way home after school. My kids love it so much that they want to learn everything they can during the day. The teachers and staff are absolutely fantastic there too! You feel like a part of one large family and are always greeted by a smiling face or two. My kids go there on a permit, it is my choice to attend Rudy Elementary School.
