RMS is Incredible! There is not one thing about the school, staff, or kids that I do not like. John Stone is an amazing leader! My three children all adored and respected him. We as a community are very fortunate to have such a place to educated our children. I love RMS and all that make it such an amazing school:)

Rindge Memorial School is a school where the faculty is very caring and helpful to all their students. They provide a positive learning atmosphere. The students are treated as though they are their children! I have never experienced another school like Rindge Memorial!

Rindge Memorial is a small town school where all of my children have been able to attend with their cousins and develop close relationships. It is an opportunity I did not have growing up in Detroit. I would love to see that Rindge Memorial is able to have all of the advantages of the schools in larger towns so the children may have the ability to go out into the world as leaders and achievers!

This truly is a school that puts children and their best interests first! The staff are motivated and dedicated to making RMS the best it can be. There is a 'family' atmosphere here and it is obvious when you enter the school and walk through its hallways. It's a great place to be!

This school is filled with highly motivated and caring staff! Some of my best friends have come out of this school and they have said that they had very loving and compassionate teachers.

All of my children have spent some or all of their elementary school years at RMS. They have received a great formative education there and the teachers and administrator are committed to their job, the school and the students. I give RMS an A+.

This school has some of the best memories attached to it of my life so far. The amazing teachers and staff at this school make it so great. Everyone makes you feel welcome and there is always someone to offer a smile and help. I love RMS I would not trade that time for anything. In the world.

RMS has the best staff anyone could ask for, teachers who are contributing to your success as a student and allow for your growth as a person. RMS is also a key part of our community and town and its facilities and building are used for activities that have nothing to do with the school. I love RMS!

Devoted teachers, incredible curriculum, staff goes above and beyond on limited budget, and our kids our so motivated to learn thanks to RMS!
