Ramalynn develops leaders and students who relish the opportunity to be role-models. Many of their students have gone on to be class presidents at their high schools.

Outstanding educational opportunities in a small school setting. My child had an outstanding experience at Ramalynn that prepared her academically and socially to excel in high school.


Teacher effectiveness: Disagree


- a parent
Teachers could be more effective and manage bullying and challenging students if the teacher ratio was higher and they had more administrative support.

Amount of homework: Disagree


- a parent
Homework is mostly online, and not instructional. As a parent and educator, I believe a combination of online and written homework would be a better mix and challenge critical thinking. The dominance of online homework seems to be a way for teachers to manage the high student to teacher ratio.



- a parent
We agree with earlier comments that bullying seems to be tolerated and the administration does not do much about it.




- a parent
We are a family with two children enrolled at Ramalynn and another child who graduated from Ramalynn last year. We are not celebrities and we are not wealthy, but we have made the education of our children a top priority. We are extremely pleased with Ramalynn. One of our children has severe life threatening food allergies. Ramalynn has been a safe place for his special needs. At Ramalynn the teachers go above and beyond to get to know each child and their unique abilities. They are then able to guide students to work up to their highest potentials. With Ramalynn's small school size every child has a chance to participate in high quality academics, music, arts, theatre, sports, spanish, Knowledge Bowl, Lego League, Chess and Odyssey of the Mind. The teachers and classmates become like family. The staff cheer every child's success and empathize with each student's special challenges. We have one child who is crazy about sports, one child who focuses on the arts, and another who is interested in a little bit of everything. All three of our children have found a safe and supportive place to express themselves at Ramalynn. We feel blessed to be a part of this school and community.

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree

Our favorite part of Ramalynn is the outstanding staff that teach there. The teachers are highly educated and extremely dedicated. They deeply care for each student's well being.

Each student is held accountable for their own behavior and how it affects the greater community, including the broader world. Through programs such as Wisdom Tales, Environmental Studies, and work at the Ramalynn Farm children learn how every action causes a ripple effect of positive or negative forces in the world. Children are encouraged to use compassion and honesty at all times. Bullying is not tolerated. With multi age classrooms, older children work as role models and mentors to the younger children fostering a sense of community and inclusion.


Teacher effectiveness: Disagree


- a parent
The teacher to student ratio is too small to allow teachers to be effective. In the two first to third grade classes, the main teachers average more than twenty children per teacher. This is about the same as public school with less administrative support.

Develops character: Disagree


- a parent
Older children are allowed to verbally and physically bully younger children. Allowing this to happen is not fair to other children, and does not develop honesty and integrity.
