My 2 boys have attended Roper for a few years. This year we can not get the teachers to send home spelling lists, or grade tests. After trying to solve the problem with the teacher (Mrs. Reneken) , it only got worse as she took out her frustration on my son in class to the point where the students started making fun of him. I didnt ever expect the bullying to come from a teacher. Some of the teachers our kids have had there were great, but Mrs Reneken, and Mrs Hillis have been a huge dissapointment!

Roper is a very good public school in Lincoln. It is an extremely large school but it is well run and the teachers really care. I'm very happy that my 4th grader attends this school.
