I'm a former student and about 10-15 years ago, Rock Spring was great. However, my younger brothers just left and the school has gone downhill greatly. The parents are un-involved, the teachers don't really seem to care much. When my youngest brother had illegible handwriting, instead of working with him on it, they gave him an iPad for his work. My other brother was bullied incessantly and the principal at the time (she has since left) denied that the school had bullies. Overall, the school is just not what it used to be.

I believe that each and every faculty/staff member of this school cares about each and every child; and probably knows every child by name. They are looking out for the child's best interests.

An amazing school. I have 2 autistic sons who go there. They go above and beyond!
