My school is Rocky Mountain Elementary, and the principal is amazing. He is always available to students and staff. He is in the halls checking on how things are going . He is giving students high fives for walking great in school. The atmosphere and culture are respectful and professional. The kids and staff are always smiling and happy.
I absolutely love this school, and we have decided not to move from the area because of the school. My son was in another school for Kindergarten, and was taught nothing because I refused to medicate him. We sent him to Rocky Mountain last year for first grade, and he is now doing math at a high 3rd grade level, and performing at grade level in all other subjects. The only problems I have with the school are the attitude of [one particular]teacher and the lack of adult intervention in the before and after school care program. [This]teacher tends to choose her favorites and ignores or berates the other students. The adults in charge of the BASE program ignore the children, and allow bullying to occur on a daily basis. They are more interested in talking than keeping the children safe and happy.
very friendly staff, open front doors, colorful, bright and clean atmosphere. Teachers range from 1 to 2 years experience to 15 years experience. A great music and art department! Luch menu very reasonable and nutritous. There after and before school program is good! Could use there own room/s instead of using the lunch room so much for activities. Could use more structure in this program howver, lots of fun extra cirruclar activities for the kids. Quality of academic success seems to be high as there are high expectations. Parent involvement active but seems like it could be more active. My child entered Kindergarten here not knowing his abc's and came out knowing how to spell and read slightly and counting to 100. The children at this school seem very respectful as you walk down the halls! Overall a high rated school!
