I never thought I'd love middle school as much as I did. Roscoe has great schools, and Roscoe Middle School is one of the best in my opinion. The teachers are awesome, and have a special bond with every student. The principals do everything they can to keep the school safe and under control. They don't overwhelm you with homework. You still do all the homework required, but it's not overdone. The staff is very friendly and helpful to all students. It was a huge privelige to get to atttend RMS. I loved it and would definately recommend this school to anyone out there looking for a good district.

I had three children attend RMS... it is a fantastic school! I have children on opposite ends of the spectrum, honors and IEP... the teachers there go above and beyond to help the students learn. I moved to this area specifically for the school and I am so glad I did. Teachers and principal were always there to help, called or emailed me to keep me up to date and I love the parent portal to keep up with my childrens grades... we all absolutely loved this school!!

Moved to this school district because I was told it was great. I highly disagree. Unless you are an all A student or play sports, you are nothing to the prinipal and staff. If your child is struggling there is no help for them. All they tell you is bring your child to zero hour in the morning. It is no help if you are lost with a subject. Zero hour is if you need to ask a teacher a brief question not explain yesturdays lesson that your child don't understand. They worry more about giving detentions then a child getting a good education. Principal is no help in trying to figure out a way of having your child achieve, all she does is blame your child instead of helping. Teachers don't help they just blame the child. My child is struggling very much in school and I'm very upset that nobody cares. In the process of trying to figure out a much better school for my child. Picking this school is the biggest mistake I ever made!!!!!

When I attended as a sixth grader in 2007-2008, it was the best school I have had the privilege to attend. The teachers were magnificient and everything just exceeds the standards and expectations of a lot of people. I love this place. :)

I love the teachers here, I have to say they really do their best. But being new here, I had a really hard time making friends, and some of the friends I did make turned out to be not good friends at all. There are way too many cliques, and none of them were willing to take a 'new kid'.

RMS ROCKS! All you parents out there looking for a good school for your kids to go to is RMS and the Kinnikinnick School District as well. The teachers, staff, and students (that would be me) are all cool. We have ok luches and I think thats the only problem. As every school has we have had our share of problems, but otherwise RMS BRAVES ROCK THE HOUSE OF SCHOOLS! There is no uniforms either which is a plus. To tie it all in three words RMS BRAVES ROCK

RMS is an excellent school. Great curriculum. Need to better prepare lesson distribution and tests to include those in band and sports. Children cannot always do 'Make-up' tests & lessons.

I went here and the teachers are ok, but I somewhat dont feel they prepared me for high school as well as they could have. I really liked the fact that they offered 'honors' classes, for students like myself, who go at a faster pace.

My son absolutely loves this school. At his grade they offer free after school tutoring in various subjects as well as morning book reviews. It is run efficiently and effectively.

Academically, I believe they could use some foreign languages in their programs. They do not introduce language until high school. This is the only drawl back. Friendly atmosphere, great teachers whom CARE.

Love this school district moved 2yrs ago to find a larger home and better schools. Went from the 'no child left behind' meaning the school just shoved your child thru to the next grade attitude. To having the teachers be there to help and tudor the kids. So they are not just being shoved thru but are making the grades as well. Wonderful change. Can't say enough.

Roscoe Middle School gives 110% to their students and always keeps the lines of communication open with the parent. The standards that are held are high and they leave no child behind in trying to meet everyones full potential.
