This school is horrible. My kids start the entire school without me. There is barely any open house days. All of the time, there's bus drivers smoking outside at the end of school, in a wooded area right on school property. The teachers, they seem like they hate their students except for a few 8th grade teachers. Many fights broke out during the school year. I suggest moving away from this school.
Going to this school was a terrible experience. I am now entering 9th grade at Pomperaug High School. The kids there are immature and mean. You will be judged based on your family's income, race, looks, and popularity. 99% of the students at this school are upper class and white. There is a lot of bullying and people that try to make your life miserable. Most of the teachers are unhelpful and do not help you if you are struggling and falling behind. However there are a few exceptions, for example my 8th grade history teacher was nice and cared about his students. However this is a rare occurence. The classes are boring and a waste of time. The focus is doing well on CMT's and other state standarized tests to try to make it look like this is a good and prosperious school, when the students don't learn anything that will help them later on in high school and future careers. The disiplinary system is corrupt and unfair to the student. You will face consequences and fines for things you were blamed for without evidence or reasoning. The sports are decent considering the cross country team is undefeated. I strongly suggest going to a different school.
Amazing school! Strongest principal in Region 15. The vice principal is wonderful as well. They make a great team. It is a well oiled machine. Kids seem very considerate of one another. Teachers always greet you with a smile. The whole staff is just fantastic. They do the job they were hired to do. I can't say enough wonderful things about RMS. My child is happy there and eager to goto school everyday.
Wonderful school with a wonderful faculty. This school is a well oiled machine! Kudos to them.
Rms is one of the best schools ever. I went there and I acheived straight a's and all of the teachers were amazing and could help with any question you had.
This school is one of the best I've been in. I had a great time while I was there, and my grades improved dramatically (compared to other schools I'd been in). The teachers are glad to help, and they even make learning fun!
