the difference between rissler now and 20 yrs ago is absolutely amazing. when my 2 kids were there 20 yrs ago, there was no communication between the teachers and i unless one of my children had done something wrong. now i have 2 gr sons there and i hear from the teachers, principle or guidance personal anytime there is something going on with either boy. (good or bad). they make the boys feel good about the things they are doing in school.i really appreciate the fact that when i walk in there, i am greeted by name, the staff is friendly and always helpful. the boys admire and love their teachers and the few small problems or questions that i have had, have been addressed and taken care of almost immediately. in my opinion, this school is staffed by well educated, caring and compassionate people.

I like the way the principal knows each student. She makes a point of greeting parents by name as well. It has the feel of a small school, but because of the population size has a big school advantage of many classes for each grade. I have three Kindergardeners who have loved their teachers. Sometimes the communication between teachers and parents isn't the best, but that is going to happen anywhere. At least I have phone numbers to reach the teachers if I need. to.
