Savin Rock Community School1

This schools is not very parent friendly. I never feel that I know what is going on in the classroom or the school in general, even after many attempts to get involved. Walkways and courtyards are not fully shoveled in the winter for walkers, even after I direct comment from the principal that he was going to make sure it got done. Several times I have shown up for school plays and parents had to wait outside (one time in the freezing cold), until they opened the side door for us. There were very old grandparents and babies waiting outside...20+ minutes. If you want to improve test scores to get yourself off of the list of failing schools in the state start with reaching out to the parents....there is a HUGE school (teacher)-parent disconnect at that school.
savin rock is a wonderful school. i have gone to savin roc kand am now graduating from bailey middle shcool. the teachers are wonderful as is the principal. Ms.Malloy , a 4th grade teacher, is a wondeful teacher as are the rest of the teachers. there are special education classes and special programs to help those who are advanced. there is also an elevator for those with disabilities. the school is just all around wonderful.
