If you are looking for a school that still grasps the concept that children are individuals, not machines... a place that embraces all children and families regardless of their quirks and differences... and a place that truly exemplifies the adage that education is not merely preparation for life, but life itself, then the Regional Multicultural Magnet School is for you. We have been blown away by the progress of both our children (one of whom requires SPED services) and the opportunities, exposure and experiences provided are unparalleled. RMMS is a truly special place. I feel that everyday I am able to send my children there, it is like giving them a gift. They are so much happier and there is a joy to their school experiences and a wonderful sense of curiosity that has been expertly nurtured. The faculty and staff are true professionals, and the positive, inclusive, proactive energy truly comes from 'the top down,' with an excellent administration and support staff members. RMMS is a true asset to the Connecticut Public School System, and an example of what we're doing RIGHT.

Compared against Public School systems in Stonington, Groton, and New London this school excels beyond expectations for teaching the whole child. Each child is undergoing individual evaluations and given challenges based on their unique learning modes. This school has extra safety nets that no other public school system is willing to spend money on... They pull out children for small, intensive instruction for either or both academics or social behavioral needs. The teachers look out for dips in self esteem and social problems and form ad hoc "clubs" in order to bring together children with similar concerns so that they learn how to deal effectively with difficult situations. This school saved my child's life socially and academically. On the downside there are many, many parents who opted to put their child in this school beause of the myriad and bend-over-backward services they provide for Identified and non-Identified (SpEd) children.

This school has a wonderful relationship with the community assisting it's students to visit with local seniors in a nursing home setting. The students are well behaved and fun to be around

Outstanding school, if you are fortunate enough to get in. Ignore the test scores because this is the average of all the kids that come in- some from really low socioeconomic sending districts. Considering that, the scores are actually very good. Staff focuses on producing thinking, caring students- not test taking as other 'blue ribbon' schools do. This pays big dividends when kids get more complex problems and issues to deal with at higher grades.

My 3 children were priviledged to be a part of this wonderful community.

What an ideal learning environment for kids! This school is not driven by test scores and text books, but instead teaches kids how to learn, think critically, and be creative. The kids know how to ask questions and work well with peers. The environment fosters respect and responsibility -- it is modeled by adults and is the expected mode of behavior. Also, the facility is only a few years old and is gorgeous! There are laptops for use in classrooms, wireless internet access, and a studio for schoolwide live video broadcasts. Very good music and art program as well as a monthly enrichment program, featuring guest presenters who teach yoga, Chinese brush painting, cooking, and more. There are several clubs for 4th and 5th graders, such as Chorus, Save the Earth Club and LEAD (a student volunteer program). Caring, nurturing teachers in a multicultural learning environment -- my kids love their school!!
