This school is absolutely terrible. The principal doesn't know what's going on in his own school half the time and is always unavailable when you try to contact him. You're not a CEO of a major corporation so why is it every time I try to reach him he's in a "meeting", I understand you may have staff meetings or board meetings on certain days but every single time I call you're in a meeting...no way There are far too many students in each classroom, so the teachers are overwhelmed and really don't care if the children pass or fail because it's too many kids to keep track of and engage with. We moved from a city with all Blue Ribbon schools and there is a major difference in the school system...this is an outrage for the amount of money we pay in taxes here in Romulus and these schools are being ran like this.

I am very Impressed with the hard work that Staff and Parents are doing to make this an effective school. My children are excelling in Math and Science. I am excited and well rested knowing that they will be able to compete in a global economy. I am happy that Mr. Parker the Assist Principal contacts me when my children are doing well and on the seldom occasion that they might be stepping out of line. This school has a dedicated parent group that is always thinking outside of the box to make improvements. Go Bulldogs Go Romulus Middle School.

All great things start with great leaders. RMS has poor leadership, lacks true passion to serve.

This school should have been closed instead of inkster schools. This school has a 3. That is not good. Teachers have left during the school year. They have lost several very good staff members because of the climate of the school and the fact that the students are out of control. If this school has a chance to make it, administration needs to be changed. Change is good and this school needs a makeover bad. The new commercial is a complete lie children are not safe at this school and the environment totally sucks. The rest of the good staff needs to find some place better. The know who there are it's not to many left. Mrs.bonum in the office is great and they don't deserve her. She can go somewhere where they would appreciate her.

RMS has an amazing teachers, secretaries and kitchen staff. Mr.Parker is a role model to all the students. "Bulldogs" are no different then any other school in the Metro area but the staff, parents and students make it a family style school.

Initially I perceived the school to be slightly above average, most of the teachers were welcoming, helpful and available for concerns. However, I later found out that there were staff members teaching whole semesters or more that were not certified teachers. When the concern was brought to administration's attention I was given the excuse that they were working on their certification and in another case the permanent teacher would be returning soon. Later, I found that the uncertified staff member was changed to a created instructional position that did not require teacher certification (Instructional Interventionist). I also warrant any parent that has students in the athletics programs to be very visible. Students are often left unattended and doors are often left unlock/propped open. When that concern was brought to the attention of the administrator his response was that he's elementary and new to the middle level and still learning.The assistant principal is more knowledgeable and seems to be more concerned about the students and their safety. I feel that it is imperative that central office make unannounced observations to assess quality and act on needs for improvement.

I am a parent, grandparent,and volunteer at the RMS. The Principal Ms. Adkins is doing a great Job for my grandchildren, who are on the National honor society. She help build thier self-esteem and incouragement to succeed and be the best that they can be. The programs and grants for visiting the U of M university, the gear up program, the WISE program. Women In Science and Engineering. She spends her time and money for and on the children. She's like a God Mother, Mentor, friend , and disciplinarian to all of our children at RMS. Lets keep her here at RMS.

Im not happy with this at all.It has alot of drama there with the students,pregnant girls corrupting the other girls.fights in halls they need to hire security guards to keep the kids in check.And as for the principals you need to listen more and change some things and let this school progress instead of letting the problems continue.Lets graduate from being a three star and challenge these students because Romulus Middle School is better then this!

The good things about the school are the principal and the building. Parents should take control of their childrens education and behavior. If our students are taught economics k-12 they will learn to value public education and demand more of the staff for our tax payers dollars.

Well I have just completed my middle school years and have mixed feelings. I think it's an o.k. school, but I've always noticed that the more popular kids seem to get breaks with a lot of the adults. We had the problem with one of the the 3 lunches being VERY large ( I mean like to the point where you'd stand in line 20 minutes of your 30 minute lunch break). People would always cut in line and were sent to the back if the were caught. I do have one good thing, The 8th American History teacher Mr.McCabe is the greatest teacher I've ever had.

This school is on the verge of change. It may be good, but only if Mrs. Atkins can continue with the path she has taken. The support of the parents is greatly needed. It almost seems as if these kids are sent to school for the parents to have a break. You see the same faces at all school functions. If there is change to be made we need to act as a community. The staff and faculty are doing a fine job. Hopefully this will continue. My daughter will return to the school next year. They have a great deal of activities and reward the kids for ajob well done. More parent involvement would make a world of distance.

I believe that the administration is committed to improving this school's overall performance. However, this school is extremly over-populated and there aren't enough programs for gifted and above average students. My child is not being challenged on any level and will not be returning next year. If you want your child to be well-rounded, intellectually stimulated and in an environment where the majority of the students excel and thrive for excellence, then this is not the school for you.

The Middle School is a big disappointment. I feel that my child is being corrupted every day that I send her to it. It breaks my heart. I hope that the new principle can clean it up. All I can say is this is where the moral values need to start. They obviously are not being taught at home. I beleive that the teachers are doing a good job. I do feel that there is an amount of favortism. My daughter was a presidential award winner and she isnt even on the student council. I guess they arent rewarded for there academic acheivements. It makes her not want to try for any extra activities because the favorites are picked first.

This school is full of great teachers, especially Mr Beauchamp. It is too bad the administrators don't stand up against parents and demand more order.

I've had a few problems with the secretarys and the couselor and the social worker. I think the only nice person in the school is the Principal. I also think that there should be some discipline for the fights in the hallway. Obviously they dont know what their doing!

This school is fairly good, but in some cases the teachers can't control the students. There are numerous fights in the hallways and the race population is hardly evenly divided. -student at R.M.S

I think this is a wonderful school. I went here and I really miss it. The teachers help you when you need help and they really care about the kids. This school has many extra classes and sports.
