My son attends Rolling Terrace Elementary and he enjoys it. His teacher is very kind and sweet. This is his first school experience and he has improved in so many ways. His teacher showed us his progress from the first day of school to his 2nd week and my oh my how much of a progress!. Kudos to Ms. Carter. Also the tiger paws are a great idea, kids love it and it motivates them to do better. Just wish the administrative staff and office staff would be more friendly and smile more. Not so pleasant.
The teachers are excellent. Parents are involved and interested in more than test scores (despite the fact that RT students do very well on the standardized test) This school has so much to offer students in terms of learning in two languages and learning to live in a diverse environment. Highly recommended for the Spanish immersion program.
Rolling Terrace, I guess, from what it sounds and looks is pretty good for the spanish immersion side. The teacher:student ratio is lower and most of those classes have teacher aides in them. For students on the "otherside" its not so. But what would the you spanish immersion parents care or know for that matter about the rest of the school....
Following up, I wrote the June 12 Review - We wish we had stayed at RT in the Spanish Immersion program. The school is warm, welcoming, and fun. The Tiger Paws incentives are fun for the kids and really incent them to work hard. The school my daughter is in now seems cold and unfriendly next to RT. We moved out of the area and miss our old school.
Great Spanish Immersion Program, great diversity, and a fantastic principal. Really love the school spirit my daughter has shown. She really loves earning "Tiger Paws" for good behavior and has made some wonderful friends.
this is a good school and mrs.friesen a 5th grade teacher is so helpful
Wonderful teachers. Great diversity. Peaceful atmosphere. Spanish immersion program is dynamic.
My child is just finishing kindergarten at RTES. Strong academics, good immersion program. Communication with parents could use improvement. Approaches to problem-solving are very traditional and kids seem forced into a one-size fits all approach.
We came from a private language immersion school;RTES has great program, small classes, dedicated staff, involved parents. Art, music, after school science. Racially and economically diverse; The transition from public to private was a challenge, but RTES is the right fit for us.
I have a Kindergardener in her 6th month in the school and after much reservation due to the #'s I must say I am very very pleased. She had a strong pre-K curriculum in a private school and the academics have picked up where they left off ie. working with her phonetic alphabet understanding in 2 1/2 months at R.T. she is reading rhyming books from front to back and doing math at a 1st grade level. She comes home excited about her music,art or gym classes and has very patient and caring teachers in this area. I'm also very impressed with the experience of the teachers. My daughter's teacher has 30+ yrs and it truly reflects in her classroom design and the success of her students. Parent involvement in the school is good. Volunteering is encouraged.
Has a wonderful Spanish immersion program and good racial diversity. Wonderful teacher/student ratio.
