I have many children at RES. They are all mixed race. I have never been treated any way but kind. The teachers are amazing. The helpers and Principal are amazing as well. The go above and beyond and i do not feel hesitant to contact anyone if needed. The kids love the school. The activities are great. I would highly recommend Reisterstown Elementary to everyone.
Be mindful if you child is not WHITE in this school the teachers will treat your kid differently. Everything a minority child does is scrutinized. There are 2 African American teachers in the whole school and this does not reflect the student population. If your minority child is smart and above average they will still be overlooked and treated as if they don't exist. Teachers tend to segregate "black" students and seat them together and disregard them if they participate by raising their hands in class. The test scores are average and they have the nerve to treat kids differently. White children segregate themselves from "other" kids that are not like them and they are not very friendly.These students are some of the rudest children I've ever seen. My child has been verbally abused and bullied and the teachers downplay the bullies actions because my child is BLACK. Do not send your child to this below average school with below average teachers that show preferential treatment if you skin is the right color.....
I have two sons that both have experiences at RES and we loved it. The diversity of the students and the celebration of each student's uniqueness is remarkable. I am truly blessed to have found a school that can educate and nurture the growth of my children! We love RES!! Thank you teachers and administration.
My daughter attended the 2nd grade in Reisterstown Elementary school (2004/05). She arrived in the US without speaking a single word in English, but with the constant support of her teacher and the team of English as a second language classes (ESOL), nowadays she is able to speak, read and understand English. It is an amazing school and a great environment! Monica Malta, mom of Hayana Linhares
I have a son that goes to Reisterstown Elementary. I really do love this school and it's staff. The principal and teachers really do care about the students. They will work with the child so that he/she will succeed.
