This is where I think Rotolo is strongest. They seem to not tolerate bullying. I think they learned from past mistakes and made some great improvements to prevent any future tragedies as much as any school can.
Middle school can be the worst time! I think Rotolo does the best job. I think they do everything possible to support ALL students in every way- educationally and emotionally. GREAT teachers and administrators. Very happy.
This school is fantastic. My 3 kids have had a great experience at Rotolo in Batavia, and I would never consider sending them anywhere else. The teachers and staff are fantastic. There were never any issues with other kids! The classes are challenging and the extra curricular opportunities are outstanding.
We moved to Batavia because we were told Batavia has excellent school. Not so. Do your due diligence. Bullying, drugs and the good kids pay the price. Find another district or go private. This really is a terrible place to send your children.
Don't believe everything you read about Rotolo here. Dig further on the web to find out more. As for our experience, we've had two children attend Rotolo and I can't imagine anyone submitting a 5 star review for this school unless they had special interests in doing so. Rotolo is clearly out of touch with what's happening with their students and their behavior. Glaring examples range from the student bully culture, which is widespread (whether on the busses, in the halls, PE or elsewhere), drugs being offered to students by other students, and the filth that comes out their mouths at times is nothing less than sexual harassment. This school sorely needs programs in place to get these kids to elevate themselves into a state of respecting themselves and others. Further, anything we've seen Rotolo do in that regard has been reactionary. That is to say, they let things get out of control and ONLY THEN do they implement policies to avoid future occurrences. Things that anyone with basic management skills should be able to get ahead of. Avoid Rotolo if possible.
