support for my children that have attended. special programs for varieties of apptitudes. involved parents. committed teachers.
Teachers and kids rock!!! music and art teachers are favorites of our kids and they are an inspiration to we parents in how they modivate our kids to be better!
excellent communication betwwen students, parents and staff...a safe and fun learning environment!
Because the teachers and administrators care about our kids and are talented educators!
RMS used to be a great school. It was friendly, the principal was at all of the activities, most of the teachers really cared, and the school was really coming together under the leadership of Mrs. H. Many programs had been instituted and acceptance for different groups was improving (we are racially different). Now we don't see the new principal and he is unfriendly- Mr. Business. The teachers that were snotty are now really snobby even to other staff members, and the growth in new programs is slipping. Our 3rd child has one more year and we are glad we will be done with RMS soon. It has been sad to watch such a great school be ripped apart.
Next year I will be an 8th grader at Redlands Middle School and so far I absolutely love this school. The teachers actually treat us like human beings and they do very good teaching job too. This school also offers mixed choir, band and orchestra.
This school really does not give a challenge to many students. The kids there are really clique involved and start tons of drama. Although out of all the schools in grand junction, this is the best.
This school is located in one of the more affluent areas of the District. If you have a student capable of attending school already knowing all of his/her subject matter or have the resources to provide outside instruction or tutoring you will love this school. Otherwise, the teacher quality and commitment varies wildly. Technology has been substituted for communication. The social environment can be brutal. This is a great school for 'gifted' children, but a poor school for children who need to be taught.
My daughter attended Redlands Middle School during her 7th grade year (2007-2008). She loved the school, the teachers, the kids and it made for a very good experience for her. I would recommend this school to anyone moving to the area......the staff is very helpful and always available.
I absolutely love this school. All the teachers are so nice and caring about what is going on in my life. They are so committed to make sure my education will help me later in life and they also make learning fun. I would not want to go to any other school than to Redlands Middle School.
My son is a sixth grader at RMS and loves going to school every day. His core teaches are awesome and the curriculum is really good. The parent Bridge system is especially wonderful for parents/teachers to communicate with each other. Would highly recommend this school!
Wow! what an amazing education my girls are receiving. This year i have a sixth grader and an eighth grader attending rms and i couldn't be more pleased with how my girls are doing. Not only is the staff and teachers building a solid foundation with our kids but they really care. As a parent i'm not just a face in the crowd, they know my name and which children belong to me. This year when my eighth grader had to have her tonsils out, she received 3 phone calls the week she was out from teachers checking up on her and letting her know not to worry that they would get her caught up when she was able to come back to school. That's not only impressive but amazing to me. Thanks for all you do,each and everyone of you are appreciated.** A rms mom
We started out at a different middle school in the valley. Our son was lost amoung the crowd. At RMS he is definately getting the education he deserves. We often feel it is more like a private school than a public school. It is so nice.
