RASA is an amazing IB school focused on the educating the whole child. Each child PK-3 get 30 minutes of both Spanish and French daily. All the teachers and staff outstanding to work with and dedicated to the success of each child. I have been at 3 different school and this by far has been the best experience for my children.
the very very best private school here!! teachers work so hard. My child is in second grade and her reading fluency is at a level that public schools cannot provide. The individualized attention really works.
My daughter has been going to the school for almost 2 years. The school has been wonderful for her. Her teacher knows her strengths and weaknesses. She knows how to motivate her. She has been exposed to math and science and 2 foreign languages in kindergarden and is reading. I was worried the school would be too small, but the nurturing environment and interaction she has had will children throughout the school has shown me it really is the best place for her.
My daughter attended kindergarten at RASA for half the day, and a public school for the other half day. We were amazed how much farther ahead she was in academics compared to her peers at the public school. The teachers are very motivated, kind and nurturing. The class sizes are small and the children know everyone else at the school. The school building is not the best looking, but resources seem to be going into providing the best in education.
My daughter is completing her first year at this school. We are very pleased with our experience at RASA. This school has so much in one place compared to area public and private schools. Full day Kindergarten, after school care program, small class sizes, daily world languages, challenging academics, curriculum that develops social, emotional and intellectual growth. Teachers and staff are attentive to my child and family's needs and know each child's strengths and weakness. I am getting my monies worth with this level of personal care.
This is not the perfect school but this is the best school in Rochester MN for my kids. Being always taught in big classes we, as parents, know how important we small class size is. Teachers are awesome and highly motivated. Parent involvement in school is great too. This school is like a family.
This is a school with outstanding potential. It is very new and still struggling with finances and the physical environment. Education is outstanding, leadership is visionary, all teachers are dedicated, and children are motivated to learn! All they need to be complete is funding to support a dedicated and adequate physical infrastructure.
There is no way to over-emphasize the potential students can reach with the individualized attention/small class size. School is new and has the expected growing pains and the facilities are not the greatest, but my son's progress never ceases to amaze me.
Tuition is very high, but the facilities are poor. Classrooms are small without any windows.
Small class size (less than 12). Two foreign languages. Individualized attention and lesson plans. Our children are growing academically and personally (much more confident) in a safe environment with no bullying. Only international baccalaureate candidate school option in town. And for those families who do not have someone at home - there are no snow days or surprise late starts. No school is perfect - but this one is always there for our children and for us.
