RMSEL has wonderful teachers who are enthusiastic and dedicated to the students. Chad, the principal, is ambitious and focused on academic performance. The students and families support each other and are interested in challenging themselves academically. The expeditionary learning style works well for students who are self motivated.

We have two sons in the lower school and they are both thriving. Their teachers are highly dedicated to their students, and always available to the parents. The new director is amazing and accessible, and is pushing RMSEL in a positive new direction while still upholding its unique philosophy. While our sons are doing well academically, it is RMSEL's emphasis on teamwork, character building, and personal growth that we most appreciate. Our children are learning how to be life long learners, and loving the experience. We feel lucky to be a part of the RMSEL community.

we love the school. very hands on learning, gives kids a chance to move their bodies. the kids become strong, independent, critical thinkers which is what we wanted. No teaching to the test here which is great. Our daughter iis learning to appreciate that everyone has abilities and is learning to work in a team. The school is in flux, though. Principal just left and they will be hiring a new principal in the coming year. The school works well for those who are self motivated but also good for motivating those who are less motivated.

Definitely different. Lots of opportunity for doing your own thing. Lots of days off school, to make up for expedition time. A bit weak in academics. Most valuable for self-motivated.

This is a great school, but only if your child is completely self motivated. Not ideal if your child needs to be supervised and told to do homework. Once you get behind, it's extrememly difficult to catch up.
