What makes this school successful is the complete integration of faculty, administration, parents, students and community. Not unlike everywhere in life, you will find favoritism and 'squeaky wheels getting greased' - but isn't this true everywhere in life? Parent and community involvement isn't required, but it is encouraged - which makes for a better learning environment. I have found the faculty (my child is now in the 8th grade) to be very supportive, organized, fair and knowledgeable. The principal and the staff are constantly keeping parents informed of upcoming events via email and broadcast voicemails. If I would have had an education like this, there's no telling what I might have been able to accomplish with my life. I know my child will be very grateful later on that she went to RMS.
