I agree with the other post about the quality of the education. However, the physical condition of the school itself is something the community and school board should be ashamed of.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted September 19, 2008

I have three children who have been in this school district since 1989. Our youngest just started Kindergarten this year. In the past, I have been very imnpressed with almost every teacher. They go above and beyond to give the students a great learning experience. This year, a new pricipal has been hired for the grade school. Since then, the entire school's ambiance has changed. When parents walk through the doors, they feel so much more welcome than they had before. In turn, everyone is much more comfortable including teachers and students. This can't help but make this school a much better environment for learning. Our students go way beyond what is expected in the state's mandatory tests. That is because what our teachers do is working. I greatly recommend R.B.S.E.S. to other parents.
