This is a great school with a true dedication to curriculum standards and with many activities available for the students, parents and families - as a whole. My son loves his teacher and we transitioned him a few months after school had begun. They are great about putting technology into the classroom and having it assist with learning. Parents are also welcomed and encouraged to assist within the classroom or the school. This really is a welcoming school with cutting edge technology and a real commitment to student learning.

My daughter just started the a couple weeks ago and she loves it! Her teacher emails to keep in touch weekly which is helpful considering kids lose papers or forget. I love the antibully program and how they have a decent amount of homework to keep them busy and challenged. I adore Mrs Araujo already and I know that she keeps them going to learn as much as they can!

I have two children in K and 1st grades and they both love their teachers. The school is current with technology while still allowing parents to have the decision to help their student do their homework on the computer or old school on work sheets. The staff is friendly and the PTO has a lot of activities plan thus far to include mom, dad or other guardians in afterschool activities. My son's teacher quickly picked up on the fact that my son is very advanced in his reading and he is now in an advanced reading group that is challenging him to learn even more.

I was a bit hesitant about enrolling my daughters at Rymfire after I had read the reviews, but SEEING IS BELIEVING. I am so lucky that my daughters get to attend such a professional, student centered school. I love their antibullying program, and how dedicated they are to improving my daughters English level. My girls came from a school overseas and it was their fist time in an American mainstream classroom. The teachers *MS. Jacques* in particular made my daughter feel safe, comfortable and secure. If there is one thing I will miss about Palm Coast it will be RYMFIRE..

I was trying to figure out how this school got four stars, well no one has rated this school in a long time. Please rate this school. reviewing test scores on here will really tell you alot about how the higher up your child goes the worse there test scores will get. ERRR thank you to all those teachers who has worked with my younger children and kept in contact with me,, 1 , 2, 3 and some 4th grade teachers. FIFTH AND SIXTH grade teachers at this school are not good!!! I know it is up to a child to work and learn but the teacher is suppose to help OUR KIDS learn also. THANK YOU RYMFIRE FOR THAT GREAT 504 PROGRAM Y'ALL DO. IT REALLY HELPED MY SON<<<<<<<<<<<< not I LOST MY KID TO HIS FATHER WHO LIVES IN ANOTHER STATE AND I WONT SEE HIM FOR A YEAR DUE TO YOUR LACK OF TEACHING AND LACK OF DEALING WITH CHILDREN WITH ADHD,

After having my child attend Imagine last year, RES is like a breath of fresh air. They are organized, focused on the student, immersed in technology, and forward thinkers. My son is eager to go to school everyday now. While at Imagine we were dealing with an overly stressed kid who always felt on edge. At RES he is confident and eagerly engaged in his surroundings. He is now flourishing! He gets to school with a smile and leaves with a smile! I cannot say enough about the amazing things the administration does for the school. They spend hours planning events and applying for grants on their own time. The teachers are top notch and excited about what they do. We are so happy to have made the move to RES and are here to stay!

My daughter is in 2nd grade. She has been attending Rymfire since kindergarten. I have been very happy with the teachers. Mrs Kopach was her kindergarten teacher. I really think that she set the standards for the grades to come. She is fun, but firm. She works with each child and pushes them to do their best. My daughter still talks about her today. She is excelling and is well rounded. I do feel that the extended day needs a total overhaul. It is unorganized and I don't feel the adults are watching them as close as they should be. There have been quite a few incidences of older kids bullying younger kids around corners and in the restrooms. They should moniter all exits, as I've seen kids sneak out without the adults seeing them. I have addressed the problems more than once, only to be corrected for a week.

When my daughter was in kindergarten at Rymfire, I could not rave about the school enough! Once she started first grade, the problems really started. To begin with, I was thrilled with her teacher, but she left for another position during the first half of the year. Not long after, my daughters grades tanked. I was informed that she was in serious danger of failing. THERE IS NO COMMUNICATION IN THIS SCHOOL! I asked many times to inform me with what she was struggling in so I could work with her at home and got NOTHING. Many times I couldn't get an answer from the teacher for over a week. I have since pulled my daughter out and put her in Imagine, and couldn't be happier as her grades are now excellent & there is much more communication!

Rymfire is great!! My kids love it. Every day they come home saying I can't wait till tomorrow!! And now they've added sixth grade to it! The school keep getting bigger and bigger! The rewards are great too. They have something called a wii room, when they can play the wii during recess. I give this school a thumbs up!

RES has very motivated and caring teachers. With the economy being very poor in Florida RES has achieved alot with very little funding. Everyone has kept a positive spirit and all have worked to keep our children out top priority.

I love RYMFIRE and so does my daughter . My daughter has been a student at Rymfire since it opened and we absolutley love her teacher's Ms. Bryantand Ms. Hartline!!!! Also Debbie at the front desk does an outstanding job for anything you may need in a seconds notice!!!! I luv you Debbie for putting up with me and my crazed schedule! The only concern I have is the screening for the gifted program, my daughter was in Kaleidoscope last year but not this year due to Fcat grades. Im sorry but the Fcat cant measure a students intelligence. I feel there should be some exceptions to this .

After dealing with a horrible school in New Jersey, Rymfire is a breath of fresh air. I have had nothing but good interaction with the people at the front desk, they are always very helpful. My son's teacher, Mr. McClelland is just wonderful. He is very accessable and always gets back to me quickly and answers emails quickly. We had a bit of a problem with my son's talking all the time and he was very willing to help with alternative methods of behavior monitoring. He cares about his students and always makes time to help them. My son is doing better this year than last and that has so helped his self esteem. It's so nice to deal with a school that doesn't jump to the 'your child must have ADD and needs meds' conclusion to deal with any child that's too social.

My grand children go to Rymefire School. It has its good points and bad just like everything eles. my experience at Rymfire is terrible. I volunteer for almost everything and the others mother make me feel like an outsider. The bingo fundraiser was so pooly ran i couldnt wait to get out of there. Had people talking about voting for them and it was just poorly ran. The parnets make you feel out of place. My grandchildren love there teachers and enjoy going to school.

I was terribly disappointed with the teaching methods of Rymfire. My child was never given homework. When he was given an assisgnment to be done it was never collected in a normal fashion...He was tod to put his homework in a box which the teacher collected at the end of the day. Same with any work done in school. Put it in the 'box.' There was not any monitoring to see if the child handed in his work or not. Teacher was always absent on Monday's and children had to deal with substitutes. My child was given someones elses test papers, which I sent back and requested his, this never happened so i was unable to see what kind of grades he was given. Little or no contact with childs teaches, when I asked for a meeting with the teacher I was given an e-mail address. NOT A GOOD SCHOOL.

definitely a sub-par school. teachers are not as well trained and experienced as other school faculty in the county. There is next to no communication with the parents or family members. Student do not receive the same exciting opportunities as other schools.

I love this school, three of my children attended Rymfire, they love it. Everyone at the school really care about their job and the children that attend the school, If your children attended this school belive they are learn something new everyday. The teacher are wonderful, they go above and beyond to teach the children, once again I love Rymfire. It's a wouldful school.
