Amazing school. Teachers and principal are caring, kind and always seem to have smiles on their faces. Laughter and fun are constantly heard throughout the building from both the kids and staff. They make learning fun, ans individualize academic support for every child. They support the entire family through the programs they offer and it's a great place to be!

Develops character: Strongly agree

Rapid City Elementary is an outstanding school! The teachers, staff members, and principal are all very dedicated and due to the small size of the school, it is a very caring and supporting environment. Where else can you find such small class sizes? Therefor the teachers are able to help the students very individually. Even though the school is small it has the strongest PTA! Events like the annual Winter Carnival in February and Spring Auction in May, new playground equipment, swim and skate lessons, field trips, healthy snacks, and more are made possible because of this very dedicated group of parents/teachers and community members.

Principal was replaced this year and students and teachers appear better for it; principal is young, energetic and current on teaching methods. You could not ask for a better commitment from teachers; they know your child and take a vested interest in educating them for the future. Given that some children in this small rural community are at a disadvantage at home and the standardized testing shows the school is well above average; I feel it is in huge part due to the dedication of the staff.

Great little school. Teachers and staff are terrific. If the Principal and Superintendent were replaced this school would be absolutely fantastic. Niether of the two follow the student handbook, listen to staff or parents which is extremely disapointing. This school has an anti-bullying policy, which is amusing since the Principle is the biggest bully toward staff I have ever met. Ask other parents, this information will be confirmed.
