Teachers at RES are amazing. Unfortunately, the Rockport School Board and Superintendent have and continue to sell out the community and students who attend RES. The school is quickly becoming the Gloucester School Annex District due to school choice. I am personally not opposed to school choice but feel when it impacts the education of those kids who reside in the district vs those who that do not, the school must act in the best interest of the children in the district. This is not the happening currently in the Rockport School District. Here are a few examples, the kindergarten and first grade class sizes ballooned to 22 this past year and as a result, RES has added an additional kindergarten class with little fanfare. Aids are not on full time leaving our teachers with 70% coverage. Kids are now eating lunch at 10am in large part to the facilities not capable of supporting the influx of students being added to the roles not to mention severe maintenance issues across all three buildings (RHS, RMS and RES). As a parent with one child in the system and one to be going into the school in the next year, if you are considering enrolling your child in RES, I would suggest taking a hard look at the future of this traditionally small community school. It seems the people in charge are happy to run the schools from spreadsheets and not in the best interest of our children's education or the community that supports them.
