Principal John Stone was NH Principal of the Year last year and also was part of the Class of 2009 National Distinguished Principals. Mr. Stone had help from his teachers, administrators and assistants all, in my opinion, also deserving acclaim. Progress is measured from the top down and the bottom up. In John's case he has created possibility for sustainability by enlisting the parents and students as equal partners in his success.

This is an extremely effective teaching place, fueled by positive reinforcement and a can do attitude. It works!

We are so lucky to have our son going to Rindge Memorial. He was a very active child and they worked very hard with us to help him become a really great student. I don't think that he would have done nearly as well at any other school. Principal Stone and Walt Schnabel have been excellent. It's no wonder that they have been elected Principal and Teacher of the year. Thank You.

Rindge Memorial School provides excellent support for children with Autism and other learning disabilities. The school principal, John Stone, was recognized with a national award for his work at RMS. Rindge is a small community that has been suffering from the economic distress of the last few years. In 2007, approximately 20% of the students qualified for reduced or low cost meals...by 2009, over 30% of the students qualify.

Because of the NH Principal of the Year. Mr. John Stone. There are many clubs for the children to join to keep them social and give them a sense of community. The teachers are wonderful and care for each student. It is a warm and caring public school that produces results!

All 3 of my granddaughters have gone or are presently in Rindge Memorial. They have gotten an excellent education of the 3 R's, and have been introduced to music, dance, acting. Principal Stone and all the teachers I have met have all shown great interest in the children in there care.

Rindge Memorial School is all about 'Being the Best' 'Whatever it takes, our kids are worth it'. Principal Mr. John J. Stone was NH Principal of the Year in 2009. An honor completely deserved. Mr. Stone works closely with the staff, parents, volunteers and students on a daily bases. The school offers many after school programs for the students including but not limited to art club, band, math, sports, theater, karate, boy and girl scounts. The school participates in the Power of the Penny and helps raise money for different causes. Each month the school accepts donations for the local food pantry. Parents volunteer on a daily bases helping in the classroom, at home projects, baking for misc functions, decorating the school, fundraising, etc., etc. Everyone works together to make the school run smoothly.

My child attended and enjoyed Kindergarten at RMS when it was still half-day. This year (03-04) they did not offer the half-day option, and I don't believe that is right - they should have put that to a vote by the townspeople; I have met plenty of parents who would have preferred it. Also, my family has never been as sick as that year, with completely weird viruses - since then, we have decided to homeschool and are having a much better school year. Pros of RMS: the teachers we met were kind and caring, the principal is a nice guy who cares about kids. Cons: School fundraisers (even for K'garten), trying to get parents involved, school not the cleanest.
