Don't bother sending your children. Since the school was scheduled to close things have gone down hill. The secretary was unprofessional countless times, they don't have teachers that are equipt to teach students, and the student are ill mannered. The only thing the school has going for it is the principal. To bad she got stuck with this school.

My daughter went to this school from Pre-K to 1st grade. Her teachers were all great especially Mrs Kolerk and Ms Terracone. I know she will miss her friends and teachers but fortuantely this will be her last year! She will be attending the Herderson- Hopkins School and I am so elated for our new journey to success. Overall this was a great experience for my daughter. Thanks Radiant Rognel Heights!!!!!!!

The school needs to implement a discipline plan for disruptive student I had to remove my son from the school because of the constant verbal abuse. The principle is nice but far removed from what is going on in her school. Students need to be held accountable for their action which I have seen little to none. Principle needs to focus on discipline. How can students learn in an enviroment. Test score reflect what is going on in the school.

I transferred my daughter from a great county school to here and it was horrible. The students lack respect for their peers and the staff are not a help to parents who want to be involved. I took an issue with the principal over a very serious matter of verbal abuse and physical abuse towards my 2nd grade daughter and nothing was done. The parents didn't show for the meeting nor did the principal reprimand the 3 other kids involved. I have since moved back in the area and absolutely refuse to send her back. I don't recommend this school for anyone over the Kindergarden grade. Since there aren't any options, my child will be going to a private school.

I was a student at Rognel Heights, my oldest daughter went for together at 3 and pre-k. I would not send my kids there for anything above kindergarten. I don't like the middle school being connected to the elementary school. The middle school kids are awful, they curse a lot, fight and are bad examples to the younger kids. The elementary school teachers are ok but the wardens they have in the cafeteria are evil.

There are some positive things beginning to happen at this school. However, it is terrible that lunch is used as a means of punishment so the children get bag (bad) lunch. Ask your children. They can talk!

I was a student a Rognel Heights and I think it was a wonderful school. All the teachers were wonderful and it was a great learning enviornment


Posted July 30, 2009

I have 3 children in Rognel Heights and 1 daughter who graduated from Rognel Heights, I think the elementary is great but the middle needs a lot of work.

This is my son's 2nd yr and my daughter's 3rd yr at the school and so far i am very pleased with my kids achievements. The staff appears to be genuinely concerned about the students well being. There needs to be a little more control directed towards the middle school kids but that also starts at home with the parents. So far so good.

I enjoy hearing about the activities my daughter learns while she attends the school. But she continues to complain about the lunch and the way it looks at time.

In 2013-2014 Maryland used the Maryland School Assessment (MSA) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and grades 5 and 8 in science. The MSA is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Maryland. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test.
