This is the worst school I have ever seen. Staff is so unprofessional, school is ugly and my daughter feels like crying with all the homework she gets. I don't understand how people say it's good if the teachers there seem they didn't even finish high school specially the principal assistant or I don't know who she is Ordo ez she has a really bad attitude and treats staff and students like animals. Can't wait to get my daughter out of there.
With my daughter in kindergarten I didn't know what to expect from the school here. My friends are suprised at the amount of homework she's doing compared with their children. I feel this is just the experience my daughter needs to prepare her for college and beyond. Her teacher is available anytime, for anything needed, to assist in my childs development. Being the 2nd year at this location things are still somewhat disorganized but I believe everything will work out and we will see the excellent results of this school return.
I am so fed up with RFMA. I am a long time parent, and this school has really went down. With Ms. Guzman and Mr. Martinez the school had much tougher homework, my kids went to school until 5:00 PM, and we were winning at the chess tournaments. We are now rated a 7 out of 10 on here. We were always a 9. My youngest is no where close to where my oldest was when he was in 2nd grade. I am taking my kids to a Catholic school next year.
I am the parent of four children that have attended RFMA since kindergarten and had enough of the Martinez brothers last year and removed my children. We came back this year. The new Principal has made the school environment learning friendly. My children enjoy a stress free, No screaming, learning zone. They are still challenged and have great teachers.
The children are not cared for and this school is as close to a military school as you can get. The teachers aren't certified and the ratio is way too high. I regret sending my daughter to its Cheyenne affiliate and now understand why the parent petitioned for Mr. Martinez's dismissal. I encourage any parent to research the founder and his dictator ways.
I am the parent of a kindergartner and I have to say that I am so impressed with the curriculum that they have at RFMA. My daughter has learned so much and they are only a few weeks in. The teachers are great and the new principle is excellent. I love that they have tennis and chess. My daughter loves tennis and played before she started here. I am so happy with this school words cannot explain. My daughter loves her teacher and loves everything about it. They also have some of the highest test scores in the state. I am a proud parent of my RFMA student.
"To good to be true school?" LOL, how about "_Too_ good to be true"? And no, its not too good to be true. New leadership and a new lighter feel have made RFMA better than ever! Full time Tennis Academy (with some state champs) and Chess too! Our child has special needs and has done very well here. I am surprised to hear anything to the contrary. RFMA to College!
"To good to be true school."NOT recommended. Principal has a my way or the highway attitude... Your kids will be treated like they joined the Army. If you have children with learning disabilities, you won't get the help they need. They will only overwhelm them.
We are so impressed with this school! The teachers and staff are very involved and inspiring. My daughter is so motivated to learn and excel. The homwork she brings home seems to be above Kindergarten level. They require parents to keep a reading log and read books every night. I can tell my daughter is already learning to read at 5!
HIgh performing, high expectation environment. College prep for kids!
Awesome school with caring teachers and staff. The tennis and chess programs are outstanding!
This school provides my two sons a great education and they both have excelled beyond my expectations. Despite the lack of supplies, materials, books and other necessary resources, they have performed very well. I plan to keep my children at this school all the way to 8th grade. The school will be adding a grade every year. They current go up to 4th grade.
Great school! The students are pushed to go to college even at kindergarten. This school is going to be the change we need.
