From the reviews before this the school has been classified as excellent, but the fact is that teachers at this school keep complaining that they have too many kids in their classrooms. What is more is that the teachers do not seem to work with the kids for improving their learning abilities, rather they are trying to make more Clerks from the old British colonial era style education. Principal and teachers are in the same boat so they will not hear anything about each other. The principal is more interested in his own Limosine rental business over the part-time money making business of being a principal.

RP is an excellent school with top-notch teachers and a first-rate principal! I have two kids, one in 4th, one in 5th who have attended RP since Kindergarten. Both have excelled socially and academically. They love school! Great, caring teachers and the most involved and approachable principal! Only one major school fundraiser where all proceeds go back to the school. We love RP!

I have two kids at RP, a 5th grader and 3rd. Both have been there since Kindergarten. We are very pleased with the staff and facilities. Contrary to a previous comment from a parent, my kids LOVE the school lunch.

I have one kid at RPE and eagerly waiting for younger one to join him in pre-K. School is fantastic and teachers are really good.

I now have two kids at Regency Place Elementary School and I couldn't be more pleased. The teachers are fantastic, the facilities are top notch, and the school is well run. RPE has also been the home of a finalist in the 2006 and 2007 national spelling bee! Johnson County schools set a high standard, and Olathe leads the pack!

In three years of having children at this school, I have had much to be pleased with. The academics are covered, and interesting to kids. The teachers love kids and love their jobs. The principal is fabulous. I have only two concerns: the school is reaching population capacity quickly (but is still keeping class sizes reasonable) and the school lunches trucked in from the central kitchen at another location are horrid. So take a lunch.

We love this school! The teachers are caring, professional, and really in tune to the individual needs of each child. Mr. O, the principal has a very good rapport with the children. The schools atmosphere is calm, fun and conducive to learning. As a parent, I always feel welcome and informed.
