MY CHILDREN WENT TO THIS SCHOOL FOR KINDERGARTEN, SECOND AND THRID GRADE AND WE WISH WE WERE STILLL ZONED FOR IT . MY KIDS ENJOYED GOING TO SCHOOL EVERY DAY, THE TEACHERS WERE GREAT, ENGAGING, ORGANIZED, HAD GREAT CONTROL OF THE CLASS. MY KINDERGARTENER HAD A DIFFICULT TIME ADJUSTING TO FULL TIME SCHOOL (SHE WANTED TO PLAY ALL THE TIME) AND HER TEACHER WAS GREAT AND WORKING WIHT US TO HELP HER ACHIEVE HER GOALS. MY SON JOINED THE MUSIC CLUB AND WAS LEARNING TO PLAY THE GUITAR, HE LOVED IT! THE OFFICE STAFF WASN'T THE FRIENDLIEST PEOPLE THERE BUT KEPT KIDS SAFE. OVERALL A GREAT SCHOOL.
Ms. Cooley is the greatist kindergarten teacher. She techniques , she knows how to work with kids that just starting school. Ms. Berry and Ms. Iverson are awesome as well. They recognize kids when they earn and deserve that. They know how to motivate them.
This is an excellent school when it comes to the staff and the teachers - my son has been there for three years and has enjoyed every minute of it. I feel like he's getting a good education there. However, the parental involvement is pretty much non-existent. The PTA apparently exists, although you'd never know it. They put on a couple events throughout the year, but in three years I was informed of exactly one PTA meeting. I have to wonder if there'd be more parents volunteering if they were given more opportunity to know where help is needed, but maybe not. The principal is excellent. Every teacher my son has had has been excellent. Specialists, excellent. If more parents cared about this school and did something to support it, it could be five stars.
This school is soooo amazing !!!!! I was in 2nd through 5th and I love all my teachers Ms. Berry, Ms. Wilks, Mr. Gularty, and my amazing 5th grade teacher Ms. Alendorfer ( now Mrs. Derby I think ) I will never forget any of you for helping me :D (2006~2010)
Roger Bryan Elementary School has a strong, supportive staff. They are very organized and truly care about their students' needs. The school is great with communication among each other. The teachers are dedicated as well as the administration. I would definitely recommend this school!
