My son started here at RFMA last year as a kindergartener. I cannot thank enough the staff and the teacher for all the support and help they gave me and my son during his first in school. My child's behavior and education improved greatly that year. I am amazed on how much my son learned IN KINDER!
I have not been happy about my child's learning. I hope this year is better than last year. I expected more out of this school. The problem is that I think the other schools in the district are worse. I don't have much of a choice, and that's tough for me and my child. :(
All the children have to wear uniforms, which I love!! I think it should also be required by the staff espically the office staff, one in particular seems to think thigh high boots & 5" hills are approiate to wear at a school... Had a family member pick my child up from school & was shocked by the attire of some of the teachers & office staff... A few of the office staff as well as a few teachers need to possibly get some additional training on how to talk to others including the kids but also fellow co-workers, a little compassion goes a long way!
RFMA started its 1st day today with a bang!!!! Class of 2026 looks sharp and they are quickly picking up everything they need to know to be successful Magonistas! I am so proud to work here and be a parent of Magonistas! Actions speak louder than words and come March we will knock it out of the park!
RFMA may have had a rough past, but I know this year and the future is looking BRIGHT! I can not wait to see what this school year holds for not just the students but staff as well. This is my second year teaching here, and the RFMA family is strong and continuing to do great things!
I would like to reply to a review from a "teacher". As a teacher who teaches out of love and have passion for the education and future of our children. I would never run away from bad scores. I would make myself responsible for the failure and I would commit myself to work harder and more diligent this year to make sure MY students succeed and improved on their test scores. That is what we do here at RFMA, we identified the problem, find the solution, and work together on fixing and closing the gap . We Magonistas are United, Dignified, Diligents, Humble and Problem Solvers. All through College!
I have been a teacher at RFMA for almost three years. You will not find a more dedicated and compassionate group of teachers anywhere else. Students are not JUST test scores and the staff at RFMA knows and respects that. Of course we continue to reflect on and refine our practice so that we can do our best to prepare our students for college. The staff has been working diligently for the past three weeks (before school started) to prepare rigorous, standards aligned lesson plans for the year. We've spent days, nights, and weekends reviewing test data and discussing the needs of our students. There is no doubt in my mind that our students will continue to grow academically and, in time, test scores will reflect that. In all honesty though, it's the day to day love, compassion, diligence, hard-work, and dedication that makes this school so outstanding. If you value your child as an intelligent person that is capable of achieving anything they've set their minds to, then RFMA will be a perfect fit for your family!
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.
