This school is excellent. The teachers are organized, involved, and caring. I couldn't be happier. There are many fabulous extracurricular activities, and my children have excelled in the classroom.

My children went to 3 elementary schools schools in Columbia because I wanted the Best education for them. It is the principal and the teachers that give the children the best education, not the appearance of the school. Rock Bridge elementary was the best and had the most caring and hardworking individuals, who were willing to work with them and listen to the needs of the All the children and parents. Schools should not compete they should focus on giving our children an education so they may succeed in the future and feel confident and comfortable with who they are. That is why Rock Bridge Elementary is the best choice.

I have two children at this school and feel that they are getting a great education there. The administration, teachers, and staff truly care about the students and work hard to provide a quality learning environment. The PTA offers great opportunities for teachers and students throughout the year, including the best fundraiser in town - the annual Chicken BBQ in October! All around great school.
