As a parent, it can be very hurtful to see your child uncared for and overstressed. It is absolutely appalling that student bullying is not as abundant as teacher harassment. Yes, teachers at this school blatantly disrespect their students for their own pleasure. Although I am aware that there are some excellent teachers and staff at Rogers Park, many others care very little about the kids' success, as others have pointed out here. I would suppose that caring for your students is the essence to teaching, but evidently I do not share such beliefs with the staff there. My child is the kind of student that earns excellent grades and is very hardworking, so I find it unjust that his teachers treat him this way. I plan to transfer him to a different school as soon as possible, and I wouldn't wish the RPMS experience on my worst enemy.
This is easily the worst school I've every been too. The teachers seem to not care about their students or their jobs and the staff is ridiculously rude. Many other students have also told me that their have been SEVERAL fights throughout the years. They give so many detentions and suspensions for the most stupid things that the students here don't even see it as a punishment anymore. There's graffiti on the walls of the entrance, the lockers and walls are scratched up and falling apart, etc. Overall this school is just a mess and needs to be taken care of IMMEDIATELY. I recently just moved here and it's only the first month of school and we're all ready planning to transfer. What ever you do not send your child here.
My daughter had an amazing 6th grade experience! Her teachers were very caring and the communication between the school and I was always on-going. The school is safe and the teachers care about the progress of the children. As for the other reviews about excessive fighting, as an educator I can say that this happens in EVERY school. The school is much better than that of its reputation!
I HATE THIS SCHOOL Im a student and I recently moved so I no longer go to this school I go to Broadview and ITS WAY BETTER. I was afraid of going to school everyday not knowing what fights were gonna happen today think twice before sending your kids.....
Besides the FEW fights that actually happen in my school - its an overall good one. the teachers are really fun & they actually know what theyre talking about. and there are so many activities to do - ski club, summit and then all of the Student VS Teacher sport games ..amazingg. :)
