Runyon Elementary School5

My son started Runyon in January 2013, he was behind with reading and had low self confidence due to past schooling experiences. Within 2 months they had identified that he needed support and by the time he finished the year he had made enough progress to advance to the next grade which was a concern in March. I now have a son who is reading independently, which was not heard of, he enjoys school and he tries hard every day. This is thanks to the wonderful staff at Runyon and I am so lucky that my son attends.
Runyon is an excellent school. Both of my daughters attended k-5th grade at Runyon. The teachers are great and parents are empowered and included. Each year I opt my children out of the CSAP tests, now named TCAP. The administrators and teachers are very supportive of our decision and parental rights when it comes to protecting the interest of our children. Parents are made partners and children the priority!
The teachers and princpal have great big hearts for kids. You couldn't ask for nicer people. My daughter has been there for four years. She never wants to leave. I couldn't be more greatful. Thank you Mrs. Morrone.
