My kids love this school and have had no problems at all. They have loved all of the teachers they have had the past few years.

Don't be fooled by tuition costs. We don't have to pay them. That is what our taxes cover.

This is a TERRIBLE school. While the school claims to have a zero tolerance policy where bullying is concerned, it really translates to, nothing will be done when your child is bullied. The elementary principal is simply there to scare and yell at kids and to announce things at various assemblies, events, and games. Oh! I'm sorry, and to work the cross walk when no one else can. The unprofessionalism of the staff is unreal. Everything from the gossip between staff members, students parents, and even some students to actual favoritism of certain students. These people are important authority figures in our children's lives and they need to respect that! We are hoping to move soon so we can move children out of this school as soon as possible. I really hope this school can make some positive changes for the poor kids that do have to stay there, but I just don't see it happening. Good luck to all the kids stuck that that place!!!!!!!!!!:( Signed, ANOTHER set of mad parents w crushed kids

Superintendent has no concern for the kids or community, it is a shame when strangers from ROE have more concern and compassion for our kids than the employees of our small school. Grade school principle does not have enough guts to fight for his students either, not the kind of people to be in charge of our kids. The high school principle is the only administrator inthe system who will fight for our kids.
