RFES is a great school because it works as a community of caring adults. The parents and the teachers and staff at the school really care about our children.
We love our school. Great families, great community, great teachers= Great School!
The Principal, AP, faculty and staff produce amazing results even with severe overcrowding. Kids are in good hands here.
This school is impacted by the overcrowing situation. The education is strong but I think the children are paying the price. The kids can't talk--anywhere! There are constantly being told to be quite. My daughter says she can't get to know other kids because there is no chance to talk. It seems like all work and no play. That is not fun and school should be more than just academics.
This is a wonderful place for children. Although it has experienced overcrowding, the teachers and staff have contined to make it a fun and nurturing learning environment.
This school continues to have great teachers and administrators, and involved parents. But Rodgers Forge faces a crisis. The school is now extremely overcrowded. The school nurse is having to turn sick children away. The toilets are breaking down regularly from overuse. Classrooms are packed. WIth a state-rated capacity of 408, the school enrollment now sits at 625. And that number is expected to reach 700 next year. What's worse, Baltimore County has no plan to solve the problem. And, in fact, has not even made it a priority. How long can a good school stay good? You can learn more at www.towsonfamiliesunited.com, begun by a group of concerned Towson parents.
As a former student, I enjoyed going to RFES very much. It was a kind of second home. However, I am dissapointed that the school has declined since I have left. It is hardly the wonderful place it was when I was there.
My child has a learning disability and has repeatedly surprised us with his on-going progress. I credit his enthuasium and desire to exceed to the patience of his teachers. My only concern is the parents who drop off their children with 'dog in tow', which was noted under the Safety and category heading.
