We have been apart of the RSTS family for almost 7 years. My son started attending in the 2nd grade he is now a gifted/high achiever 9th grader. My daughter has attended since Pre K. She is now a 3rd grader. When Ms. Frieson was principal it was a wonderful school. We did have moments when I was not happy with the environment. How ever, we now have Ms. Massey as our principal, and it is a great experience, again. Her prime objective is to make you as the parent feel comfortable to leave your child at RSTS. I love the teachers. I love the support staff. Some people do not like the neighborhood, but I feel like my daughter is safe, locked doors, screening of visitors, and verifing who is allowed to pick up the students.
I am a parent of a Kindergartener and it is important for me to add a new post as I think many parents searching for a quality school cannot receive enough information; especially on RSTS. Our family has been pleased with the attention our DD receives in class and after school. The principal, Ms. Massey, is kind, loving, friendly and cares for her student body, teachers and parents. She ALWAYS makes time to speak to you. I am always impressed with the teachers who know my DD in other grade levels. It is a small school and a close community. Ms. Thomas keeps a great parent center and is extremely helpful. Overall, we are thrilled that our kiddo has an opportunity for a great start in a school district that is not rated as high. I should also say that the students have been kind and friendly as well. Really, a great pleasure to be here. Kudos to all.
I would have to say the school was great, but started going slowly downhill since Ms.Fryson left. The bulling and general annoying students started to increase and this is from a former student who got bullied herself. I used to love school and I got all A's . But as soon as the bulling got out of control my grades started to slip and i was soon getting B- 's, instead of A+'s . I was going from straight 3's on the CRCT's to mostly 2's. If I had to I would recommend you go somewhere else.
Robert Shaw Theme School is a wonderful school for all our children. I am so very excited to share my opinion because I have never regret a day that my child has attended there with prefect attendance for the last six years. Robert Shaw staff teaches, A great education, excellent conduct and respect for others and others things, will take you down the right path.
rsts is hands on one of the best school I have three boys that attend this school its very challenging parents involvement is wonderful I would recommend this school to any parents you have to experience to believe it.
RSTS is an awesome school because of the teachers and parents. If you think about it you are your child's first teacher and having a teacher that really cares for your child plays a very important role in their education. Teachers and parents keep up the great work!
I have two kids that attend RSTS along with my cousin. I really love RSTS down from the principal to the kids. The level of teaching the kids is excellencent. I would recommend RSTS to any parent. My oldest son (going to the 2nd grade) is in the chess club (9th place in the national this year April 2008 the only elementary school at the tournment way to go tigers) and the gifted program. The youngest is following right behind him. The mandortary parent involvement I love. We are looking forward to this year. Way to go Ms. Frison, the staff and the kids. TNewton
My two children have attended Robert Shaw for the past four years. The entire school provides an excellent learning environment for all students. It is really important to be an intricate part of this school community.
