Both of my children attended Rodgers, and now I am the principal. I was appointed in March of 2013, and was given the opportunity to hire my own Assistant Principals as well as other staff members. At the moment, we have three FANTASTIC AP's with 740 students. I have also hired TOP NOTCH staff, including teachers, resource people, and instructional support who truly care about our students. Our Student Council is also AWESOME, participating in many charitable drives and events for the needy. Regardless of what may or may not have occurred at Rodgers in the past, our entire administrative staff was not there at the time, nor should we or the school be blamed and judged based on past events, no matter how tragic. I have done my best to make it an inviting, welcoming family-like atmosphere with a safe, caring, and orderly environment. Please feel free to call me if you have any specific questions about our Rodgers.

Rodgers is an excellent school I used to go there and the FIRST PRIORITY IS TO MAKE SURE YOU ARE HAPPY . Guidance counselors and teachers all care about your education , The principal is amazing ! And yeah a girl died but School board did everything to correct it , We got a new principal , Asistant principal , And this school is much better than it was . And the chorus program is excellent !!! Mr Lopez is one of the best teachers there ! And when we went to preform for MPAs and universal and especially concerts we got amazing ratings like excellent and superior (the highest ratings) I LOVE THIS SCHOOL!

STAY AWAY FROM THIS PLACE! Students are shoved through the system. Administration is more concerned with covering their a** than doing their job. Teachers are just plain tired and burned out. Thugs rule the school with little to no adult intervention and definitely no consequences for their actions. Student Government consists of teachers, parents, administrators and IS A JOKE. Teachers just talk about how overworked they are and tests they administer. The school literally looks like a prison! Do whatever you have to do as a parent to make sure your child DOES NOT GO TO THIS SCHOOL. You and your child will regret it for the rest of your lives! This is the school 2 years ago where the little girl was not watched by teachers, wandered off and drown! BE WARNED.

My daughter sent her son to Rodgers for 6th grade. We took him out after a couple of months and transferred him to a Charter School in the area. He is doing excellent, learning without distractions. He was bullied every day, punched, pushed and thrown on the floor at lunch. When he defended himself, he got in trouble. Right after he left, a special needs girl drown in the pond behind the school, sad. Parents take your kids out of there. No kid should have to endure that.

It's sad to see reviews that are misspelled. Don't you people at least use spell check? It obviously shows that some of you had a bad education and here I am researching schools only to find reviews filled by unintelligent beings. Teachers can't do much for bullying. It's a PARENTS responsibility!!! I'm not for bullying but do believe the best solution against bullying is knowing self-defense. So DO something for YOUR child and teach them self-defense. Stop being so lazy and dependent of others to fix your issues. I'm done here.

The staff is so RUDE and my step son is not learning a thing! They recomened that he be in regular classes and he is not where he needs to be, they really don't care either. This place is more like an innercity ghetto flop house where kids go to hang out. If it was up to me I would pull him out today!

The school is really bad starting from staff, teachers and the kids. If you want your child not to learn anything send them there. Thank goodness my child is leaving this year. Do some search before you decide to send your child there. I wish I had done my..

Mrs, Lopez is a great teacher ! I was able to attend the last parent and teacher night and Mrs. Lopes took her time explaining everything my son needed for Language Arts, Rodgers is overcrowded and his other teachers seemed to not be on point and on task as Mrs. Lopez is. This school needs more Teachers like her.

iWent Too Rodgers 6th - 8th Grade . Its A Mixed School Of Good & Bad . But iWouldnt Say Its The Teachers Or Staffs Fault . Its The Parents Fault For Not Teaching There Child Right From Wrong . The Teachers Are Amazing & So Is The Staff . Every Adult There Is Willing Too Help Out Any Student At Any Time . My Grades Were Adverage & Above Adverage At Times . There Principal Sharron Tumicki Is Completely Amazing She Is The Sweetest Lady In The World , Shes There For Every Child At That School .

All in all Rodgers has its ups and downs. It has bullies, it's over populated, many teachers are totally inconsiderate, and it's pretty gross. But I also think my teachers were good I learned alot, my guidance counselor was very nice and I'm glad I have her, the lunches aren't bad, and I have made many good friends. So I do think its an okay school.

This school is the worst middle school in Riverview. Uncontrolled students. Too many bullies, the staff didn't do anything to stop them. They punished the victims instead.

I am not a big fan of Rodgers Middle school, because the teachers are not involve with parent/ teacher communication as I think they should be. I think the principle is doing her best, however the teachers should carry most of the weight when it comes to this. Hopefully, the 2007-2008 school year will improve with parent/teacher communication.

My children have attended wonderful elementary schools in Riverview, but when it came time for middle school there was no way I would send them to Rodgers. I have NEVER found any parent that had ONE good thing to say about this school. Am sending mine to a magnet school which is great (but inconvenient) and know many other parents here that are doing the same.

Can't wait for my child to be out of this school. There is alot of bullying going on in this school, which does not make for a great teaching or learning environment. While there are some very good teachers at this school, in my experience the bad definetly outweigh the good.

Honestly, Rodgers Middle School is one of the worst middle schols i've come in contact with. My child has been going there since 7th grade and since then her grades have slipped greatly. I belive the teachers dont give enough effort in the classrooms beacause of the nummber of students they have to control. They spend half the class period trying to calm the students, and not all of the childrens needs get met. The hallways are packed with students and the behavior is afull. I hear of fights during the school day almost everyday. To tell you the truth, I cant wait until my child moves on to highschool where I hope she can get a better education.

Advanced/honors classes are good. Poor communication with teachers, principal and assistant principals. Very over crowded! Poor notice given regarding extracurricular activities.

My child has gone to Rodgers Middle School for the past 3 years. I believe he has enjoyed going to this school and all of his teachers too. At one time or another every school seems a bit disorganized, but over all Rodgers has kept us well informed. I especially like their website it has the most current information, the website has all the phones numbers for all the teachers and principal so if I ever have a question I never hestitate to call. My child is learning at grade level and is not having any problems I do owe this to the school and the teachers. My only problem with this school is how far it is because of residential zoning which means that for many parents there will be less after school activites.

This school is an absolute mess. The principal has no control and offers no direction to her staff. The atmosphere is not one of learning but filled with tension, anger, disgust and hate.How any child can learn here is beyond me. Parents beware, please send your child antwhere but here. They deserve better.

Very disorganized school. Principal very weak minded. Overcrowded. Poor quality food. Special education needs complete overahall. I could go on, but I am sure you get the message. Teachers not well enough qualified, need re trained. Office staff lacking in people skills.

This school is very unorganized, the employes workin in the front office are extreamly rude and inconsiterate. The principal spends more time worring about the raising of money than her own students, the parents need to stand up and say something becuse I took my child out of this school becuse all of her classes were to over crowed and the teacher couldent teach. I have seen many parents complain to themselves but they need to say something to the school board.
