Teachers and curriculum are good, but the older kids are unfriendly to newcomers. Bullying going on here.

I have one child going to this School. Since we got stationed here my son attended Kindergarten and is now in 1st grade. My experience is very positive. My son had 2 wonderful teachers. Mrs. Aycock and Mrs. Davis. He reads 2nd Grade books and comes home with A's and B's. Both of them take their times and are very patient with the children. They allow the parents to come to class and help them. I am very involved in my child's education, that is very important. They have special classes for Children with learning disability. No child stays behind. I am very proud to say that my Child goes to Rosepine Elementary, and I would recommend this School to anyone and everyone!

Average is the rating I've given and that's about the best thing I can say about RES. I had 3 children in RES and I am so grateful that they are out of there. Like any school, RES has some great teachers (especially the Headstart & Kindergarten programs), but the majority are just passable. I put my 3rd grader into Hicks and she went from trying to add and subtract money to a class where the children already knew multiplication, division, and cursive. It was a HUGE leap compared to RES. My oldest claimed that she was "doing about the same things" in her Hicks 5th grade class as at RES, but when I saw her math papers the difference was ASTOUNDING; she was already working on 6th grade state requirements in Geometry at Hicks. Hicks has a poor review here, but you must take into account that as a rural community there are very few people in the Hicks community that have access to the internet (it's still dial-up out there) except at the school which has a decent computer lab. I'll grant that the "bells & whistles" may not be abundant at Hicks, but I'll take children that come home acutally CAPABLE and LEARNED over dances and constant extracurricular activities in the classroom.

I have 4 children that attend Rosepine. I have to give credit where it is due for these teachers and other staff including the bus drivers. They are compassionate, loving and dedicated to our children. We all should be thankful for these teachers for all that they do for our kids. I understand that there needs some changes such as the bus drivers have too many students and have to do 2 runs each day to get our kids home safely. Ms. Heather is a great lady and loves the kids. Mr. Lewis and the assistant principal are very understanding and I just had an incident where my son was being bullied and I called there and within 2 hours the problem was resolved and the boy teasing my son was punished. I feel that if the parents allow the school to punish such as spanking then that is fine but there are other options such as detention and suspension. The other staff is very courteous and understanding and I think they all do a great job. If people think that teaching is an easy job then they should do it for a day and see what it is like. I can t thank these teachers enough for the hard work that they do for our kids. I am proud to say that my kids attend Rosepine Elementary School!!!

I absolutely love Rosepine Elementary School. I went to school here and have had the opportunity to move back to the area and send my two children here as well. I find the staff to be very helpful and understanding. I also enjoy the new leadership of Principal, Charles Lewis. He seems to be doing a great job. The only thing that needs to be changed at Rosepine Elementary/Rosepine JrSr High is that there needs to be a Middle School to accomodate the growing community and it's needs. I think that a Middle School would help solve some scheduling and crowding concerns. I would recommend this school to anyone and everyone! You won't find more dedication!!!!

I am very pleased with RES. I have read the previous reviews and can agree and disagree with some things that have been said. My son does have homework every night but it is relevant to what he needs to learn and reemphasizes what is covered in the classroom. His teacher is very concerned about his well-being and the staff is very friendly. It is a small, personable school and no they don't have music or art classes. That's where parents come in! Do be prepared to get bombarded with fundraisers. I would recommend this school though .

We have just moved here from overseas and are coming from the DoD system. In all fairness it was the only school system that we have ever worked with. We came here with an open mind and are trying very hard to adjust to the new way things are done here. I have to say that it is turning into one of the most challenging times of my life. First of all the whole school is very very strict. Corporal punishment is still enforced here and used as a threat for the children from second grade on up. There is no art, music or extra languages however they do expect your children to do more homework than I have ever seen. Second grade students in my opinion are expected to take care of way too many things on their own. It has taken two weeks to find out the answer to one question from my child s teacher. The classes are all over 25 students per teacher and there are no aides to help the students that are having trouble. The communication between the teachers and parents is pretty much non existent. No matter how many times I have asked for email addresses the best I can get is notes scribbled on the side of failed test and homework. I remind you that I came here to straight A students. F s are given here gleefully and with no help offered. The school library is incredibly small and has very very few books from the children to choose from. On the night of open house my husband and I went to the library to look around and saw that the dictionary was upside down. When we went to turn it over it is stuck to the podium that it was on. It had not been touched in a very very long time. We were given no information about our 4th grader changing classes. That is something she found out on her first day of school so needless to say we did not get to met any of her teachers other than her homeroom teacher. Whom did not tell us anything about the changing of classes when we stood and talked to her about our child? Our fourth grader started school with no desk and no books. (Seems they were back ordered) It has been heart breaking for me as a parent trying to do the best I can with our children in this system that is setting children up for failure in my opinion. I no longer wonder why LA has such a low rating in the nation for its schools. I came to LA with straight A students that loved school. Now have two little ones that get off of the bus every day crying about how much they hate school. The whole atmosphere here is very depressed and there is a distinct feeling that the county motto is Not my job It is sad to be surrounded by a whole community that seems to not only be stuck in mediocrity but appears to be very satisfied with it.

Mr. Simmonsen the Vice Principal is a great person. He is fair to the children and tries to keep up morale. The workload for the 6th graders has been minimal (less homework) There really isn't music, The only school sport is basketball in the earlier part of the year for 5th and 6th and the parent involvement appears to be excellent.

I am very proud to have my children attend RES. I know that my children are receiving a quality education in the Vernon Parish School system. One has only to view the Parent Report Card located at the Louisiana State Education website to see that the school has 98% 'Highly Qualified' Teachers. The RES faculty and staff are concerned about the students and work very hard to provide a warm and nurturing atmosphere. The school library is a wonderful place to find excellent reading material. Our growing conditions have been created because so many people have chosen to move into the community based upon the wonderful school system. The growing conditions are being addressed with the addition of a new building. The use of a website is a great idea, time constraints prohibits this endeavor. There is always room for improvement, and parent surveys are sent out monthly for parent

Talk about the lack of education this school is so behind the times it's not funny. There is so much homework if you have more than one child they won't be done till 9:00 PM. The School was informed about a website called schoonotes.com which can provide a way to help students and parents with the homework the students have for that week, and it just falls on deaf ears. Must be to much work for the teachers to be able to figure out. Oh there is a website for the school, but it looks like it was designed by the schoolboard no effort by the school whatsoever. The bus drivers are the worst I have ever seen.

My kids have been in Rosepine schools all their life. Not only do I feel they are have and are getting a good education they are also being taught values and respect...The small school feel is what I want for my kids....I like knowing my childrens teachers. I will not send my kids to a bigger, less personal school.
