We just moved here from down river area in Nov '13 2014 started some snow days. The school system made good calls with closing the school due to snow, ice/extreme cold weather. I was impressed with the communication from the distrcit with phone call alerts to keep me as a parent updated on the status. As a working parent, they offered services during snow days. All 3 of my children were pleased with the transition and came back from school happy. They were pleased at how helpful and kind other students were. We moved away from allen park schools and taylor to this district because of bullying. The choice to move in November is never easy for a parent, and I know it can be difficult for children. NOW, kids are not afraid to go to school and don't make excuses to avoid school. Royal Oak as a better demographic and has good support for parents, students in educational and developmental standpoint. My middle daughter has a learning disability and the school helped a lof with the transition we are going to work with the school to achieve goals. Well worth the move. Great schools in this district. It is finally nice to see my kids happy and looking forward to school.

My children have attended Royal Oak Schools for the last six years and I wouldn't consider moving them to any other district. The service they receive is wonderful. One is very advanced and there are multiple opportunities for growth and challenge. One performs more in the normal range (with and IEP) and loves school and is truly engaged which is a blessing since she is so socially oriented. The school works hard to integrate kids with special needs and to teach tolerance for bullying. I would recommend this school with a heart beat. The teachers and staff and even the principal are very friendly and easy to communicate with.

Very accomodating school for kids with special needs, good after school programs, good staff. Highly rated by the state of michigan compared to other schools in area. Satisfied with the way the school teachers and prinpcal and special ed staff worked with my son and his needs to make it a good learning environment.

I have attended for 6th though 8th and loved it. There is a great energy from the classes and the teachers want you to feel comfortable to be yourself. The school brings in tons of programs and speakers that a relevant to us

I hate it there all the kids act like there better than kids that have less money. They also give out tons of homework it usually takes my whole night to finish it all i believe its to much for 7th grade. the teachers are also very rude. But the teachers do very well at explaining things, not very well at explaining to a student individually though.

My child is in 8th grade and has attended ROMS since 6th grade. The bullying against lower classmen is terrible. The school administrators seem unable to get a handle on it. Another issue is with staff and student prejudices. My child (an African American) frequently hears the "n-word" from students. My child is a good student, with a 3.5 GPA. However, each year, many of the the teachers assume my child is less intelligent than white students, forcing my child to work harder to get good grades. Despite these issues, my child is receiving a good education.

My daughter has been getting Ds and Cs in elementary. She got help, but when she started Middle school, she was failing again. The tutoring help here really works! And the teachers understand every students lifestyle!

I think that it is a great school. It is large but its so easy to get used to. there is good amount of bullying but go try to find a middle school that doesn't have any! We are 11-14! I'm in my last year at ROMS and it was a great experiance that even if I had the chance I would never change!

Royal Oak Middle School is a huge asset to the district. My son has had such wonderful experiences in his two years at the school. The teaching is outstanding as well. Please remember that you get out of school what you put into it!

This school is absoultely horrible. The teachers don't care whether the children learn or not and the children are cruel and out of control. The 'zero tolerance bullying' rule is a joke!

The school is beautiful and the counselors are more than receptive to working with parents/students in regards to any problems. If someone is having an issue with being bullied or shunned, they should definately speak to a counselor or principal. If they are not made aware of a situation, they can't fix it! Not to mention (unfortunately) bullying/shunning goes on at most schools.

I think this school is too large. The physical updates to the school are beautiful. Yet the emotional atmosphere is terrible. Bullying and shunning run rampant.

Royal Oak Middle School (ROMS) is such a beautiful school. They really fixed it up after the fire in the gym, which the gym is looking quite nice too. The teachers are wonderful, and very good at their job. But what concerns me is how large the school is... It is really easy to get lost and I even got a map and that wasn't much help. Other then that, I really enjoy the school, the teachers, and learning there. I already feel at home, and starting to get comfortable with changes. I do think that Chinese Club is a perfect experience to learn about a different culture.
