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.
Rodgers is one of the best schools you could ever send your kids to.. so what if there are fights the teachers are great especially the chorus teacher and I would never EVER change anything because everyone is really nice once you get to know them.. just don't hang out with the wrong crowd :) I am a student that is currently going there and I love this school :)
this school is amazing so what if there r a lot of fights the teachers r great expecially the chorus teacher i sucked at math but then i went to this school and get straight a's teachers take their time to explain things. if u want ur child to learn go here this is a fantastic school.
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 . None Of The Staff Would Let A Child Fall & Fail ; My Older Brother Went There & Mrs.Brown The Guidence Consouler & Mrs.Tumicki Helped My Brother Get Into South County So He Can Make Something Outta His Life & Now Hes Graduating This June & Goin To Johnston & Wells For Culinary . Rodgers Is A Great School & iRecomend It . iDearly Miss That School & Thoese Amazing Teachers (:
