I Am a parent of two children at this school, this is my eldest' second year there and the first for my youngest. I've been disappointed with this school from the beginning, but circumstances have kept me in the neighborhood longer than I had expected. I've not had good experiences with the staff members aside from the two people that run the office, my eldest went with out a teacher for weeks after she had to be switched from her original teacher. The new teacher was very rude upon meeting, (after not showing up on time the day she started) not introducing herself and ignoring me the first time I tried to speak to her. After that I heard daily complaints about my child's behavior in class; when I asked her if she thought we needed to perhaps set an appointment she said no. My husband and I tried to set up an appointment with the principal (about 2 months ago) and have yet to be called back. Pick up is a nightmare, they let any one walk into the school. I can't wait to never have to deal with these "Education Professionals" again. I'll give it one star because I don't have the option of zero. Save yourself the headache and if you can send your child to a different school.

This is my daughter's first year at Red Rock ES. I have only met the principal once. I had to introduce myself to her. None of the teachers say hello to you. The office staff act like they do not want to answer your questions. Why do the kids have to wait outside in the rain?. When I brought this up to the staff they acted like they did not care. Why do the kids get easy homework?. The school is more worried about their Spirit Day some staff members get very upset at the student, when they do not participate. Why aren't the kids learning a different language?. The food is terrible. They need more challenging academic programs. Why is there no PTA, when I asked the office I received no answer. If I could afford to send my child to a different school I would. Dismissal is terrible there is no organization. I don't feel safe for my child.

I am a parent with two children at Red Rock and my daughter has attended school since kindergarten. She has always maintained pretty good grades my son started kindergarten this year and seems to be adjusting fine. I wish there was more parent-teacher activities to speak of.

I have two children who are students of Red Rock. I have had good experiences with their teachers, (Lewis, Brittelli, and Davis), and with their focused reading program. However, I have had an overall disheartening experience with the school in general. I was disappointed to find soda and very low quality junk foods being served to the students at all events. When I tried to express my concerns to the principal and other staff over encountering students cussing and in one experience having pornography on campus, I was laughed at for mentioning such insignificant events and told that the school was in a poor area and that I was expecting too much. While I understand that public school is no safe haven, I am saddened to find such a jaded staff with low standards of acceptable behavior. Additionally, students have NO access running water; the school is drab and dilapidated.

The special ed class my son was in was very disappointing. To be fair, I only have experience with the one classroom and teacher and have no basis of analysis for the entire school. I observed on multiple occasions-1 hour naps, 1 hour of play, separating disabled kids from nondisabled peers during inclusion activities, sick children being permitted to remain in the classroom rather than the nurses station or being sent home, unexplained injuries and the teacher would tell me to get my son out of the school. For my son, it was your basic baby sitting service. I suggest parents monitor their children's development. Please do speak to the teacher if you do not see improvement, or if you see regression, as was my case.

I have been very pleased with the Red Rock staff. I have two children in this school, and the teachers are wonderful. These ladies have gone above and beyond this year, and I realy appreciate the school district much more than in the past knowing you have teachers like Mrs. Lewis, Mrs. Cindy Hall,and Mrs. Anderson on staff. Mrs. V and Mrs. C that run the Safe-Key at this school is top rated to me as well. I would have been lost with-out them this year, and I am sure I am not the only parent who would say this! This is a great staff! Thank you for Everything!
