I do not understand why the last review ! It's completely wrong ! My daughter is a student at Rice Square School since kindergarten, and we love there ! Mrs. DiGregorio and Miss Maria are amazing ! The staff is the BEST !! Unfortunately I had to transfer my daughter to another school for the next school year because we bought a house far from it, but we are going to visit them often, because we are missing them already... I LOVE THIS SCHOOL !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

this is a horrid school. my son is bullied every day. the teachers turn a blind eye. the principal has "meetings" but nothing is being done. My son was told by his class mate that he was being beaten at home and nothing was done. my son was pushed head first into a fence and a cop saw the whole thing and nothing was done. i am sick of the bullying at this school, my kid should not have to come home telling me he had his things stolen cause kids are picking on him and when he tells the teacher yells at him for talking or getting out of his chair.

My kids have transferred to this school. I must say that the teachers are top notch. However the building, facilities, and 'gym/lunch area' are WAY out of date. Needs a lot of work and it is busting out the seems with students. No kitchen for warm lunches either.

The teachers are wonderful but the school itself is very worn down and is in need of repair.
