I love the fact that Orchestra is offered. I feel this gives my child an advantage. I wish more schools would add orchestra. I feel it is very beneficial for brain development and for creating a well rounded human being. The teachers that my son has had in the past have been wonderful. The faculty, including the teachers genuinely care about the children.

I have three children that go to Rahn. My daughter attended K through 6th and I can't thank the staff there enough for the outstanding education they provided. The parent involvement is excellent and the teachers are grateful to have your help. The staff is truly dedicated not only to academic success, but also helping to build character and self confidence. I wish all parents could send their children to schools of this caliber.

I went to Rahn when I was young and my oldest daughter went there and my youngest still attends the school. They teach the children good values and have great teachers!!

I have a first grader at Rahn and her teacher (Mrs. White) is excellent, as was her kindergarten teacher last year (Mrs. McCarthy). The levy passed, which will fix this year's unfortunate large class sizes and add back some vital programs. Mr. Steele is a kind man and top notch principal in my opinion.

My son is in kindergarten and continues to complain about how bored he is. I have discussed this with the teacher and have not seen any improvement. I am not impressed with the principle at all. He seems to be very detached from the parents. I am thinking about transferring my son next year.
