My son entered his first year of Kindergarden at this school and the teacher is great. She always answers all my questions and makes sure I am uptodate with how my son is doing. I don't know what the parents experienced in the past to give a bad rating, but I can say that my son is loving this school and gets up happy to go to school everyday. My best advice would be to get to know your teacher and have a good relationship in order to help your child succeed in school. The staff is very helpful and the teachers are knowledgeable and kind. The only complain I would have is that they really need to finish the renovation of the school asap, and their website needs to be completely renovated as it is not very helpful at all. That's just my 2 cents.

This School is horrible...I am so happy we will be moving out of this school district next year. The staff and teachers are by far the worse...we moved here from Rockdale and we had to do a complete 360. The teachers do not seem to care at all about helping the kids succeed.

donot send your child to this school the staff is very unorganized and rude and careless not professional at all my child started going to this school when she was in kindergarden first year ever never went to pre-k she was homeschooled. Her teacher was very passive controling and not professional at all! I told the assistant principle and she did nothing and i even told the school principle still nothing its obvious you definately have to be careful of some teachers and their controlling ways with your child oh i almost forgot you cant just come up to the school even if you show an photo id sayin who you are they tell you u have to make an appointment so that they can put their game faces on when u come never know whats going on when your are not there my child was dehydrated frusterated and tired after so much pressure they put on your child to help their image look good. 5 star yeah right!!!!

This is my child's first year of school and we're on day 3, so far it's been a horrible experience for the both of us. The staff has NO CLUE what they're doing, unorganized isn't even the word and the school is still under construction. Kids are having classes in trailers, they are not being properly escorted through the parking lot to get to the so called playground area, bringing the wrong child to me during pick-up, and supposedly you are NOT allowed to drop off cupcakes and see your child on their birthday <-- WHAT?! The staff has been rude, some have been misleading, and the rest I personally believe just don't care. All of the positive reviews were from 2003 or 2007... I guess since then lots of stuff has changed. I am extremely unhappy with everything so far from registration and continuing. It truly saddens me that my child's first couple of days there have been miserable. I will gladly change my rating when the staff and assistant principal gets it together and changes their attitude, and just about everything else. Until then, TWO THUMBS DOWN!

I have found that Rockbridge Elementary is a very good elementary school. The Principal, Teachers, and Staff seem to really love and enjoy children. They also seem to really love and enjoy their jobs. They are very helpful, involved, and show a genuine concern for their students and their students' academic success.

I would like to say thank you to all the Rockbridge staff thru the years for helping my daughters. I really appreciate the concern that they show towards my daughters thru their ups and downs of personal problems and school support. Also for always being there when you need to have any questions answered. They have many different programs for kids that may experience learning disabilities and understanding to get them that help that they need to succeed in the future ahead. Plus they are great when it comes to festivals and talent shows too. They are the best school in Georgia.

My children love their school. I do also. The teachers and staff go above and beyond the normal standards. I want to give a special thanks to: Ms. Denike, Ms smith, Ms Dickens for working so hard with my children.
