My children have been enrolled at RCS for the last 2 years, and I absolutely love this school! My son is in second grade, and has had an amazing experience with a truly wonderful teacher. Everyone at RCS - the principal, the teachers, the aides and even the Aftercare staff know and care about my kids. My kids feel that they are part of a community - and I feel that way too. They are not simply taught academics, although there is plenty of rigorous instruction. They are also taught to be organized, self-disciplined, and caring. My kids believe that they have the ability to make positive changes in the community, and that they have the power to help people who need it. Seeing these traits develop in my children, along with solid, consistent academic growth, reaffirms that I've made the right choice for my kids' education.
Can only comment on Kindergarten experience so far....but we were extremely pleased with the level of education received this year, specifically with reading and math. I agree with a prior commenter that the principal and other administrative leaders know each child, which is quite impressive. We were involved in sports and it was a very fun experience for our child. We attended the school play (which was better than our community theatre production) as well as many family functions , and our entire family had a blast and felt welcomed by the feeling of community in the school. Also, the religious education was great and age-appropriate.
The previous email is completely off base and malicious. If the review is really by a "parent" of an RCS student - present or former - he or she has an ax to grind. The record will show how well RCS children perform academically when compared to both public and other private schools in the region. I have two children in the school, both of which are challenged daily by a rigorous curriculum and a high moral standard. The school provides them with countless opportunities academically and socially. We have a dedicated staff and community of volunteers who provide a wide range of extracurricular activities, including various sports, community service projects and groups, and the best performing arts program available to elementary students in a school setting. Bullying IS NOT tolerated and the community supports each family to ensure that each member finds a place of comfort and acceptance. The leaders work hard to give everyone an opportunity to become as involved as they'd like.
This is a great school to send your children and I would know because I have been a parent volunteer at this school for ten years. The teachers are knowledgable, loving, and devoted to their students. Many of them go out of their way to help children struggling either academically or emotionally. My children have received help before, after, and during school whenever they needed it. It has a great sports program and all its volunteers are CAP certified to ensure the children are safe, strong, and free. It is important to note that RCS students in middle school have won numerous essay and math awards. Advanced Math starts in fifth grade and the science program is unsurpassed, equipped with a lab and smart board. This is a school where the principle knows each child's name and even periodically reviews their tests and signs them. From first grade to eight grade children are taught to be organized, disciplined, and responsible. Currently, I have three children in the school and it is one of the best decisions we have made for our family.
This private Catholic Church school is a very bad Elementary school in Cherry Hill, NJ. The school are plagued with Bullying, Harassment, Academic problems. School Principle , School teachers were trying to cover up the school problems in stead of trying to resolve the problems. School teachers skills in Math are at the minimum level. They have to use a Math Answer book which suggest that they do not know the Math answers themselve while teaching childrem Math. Parents will waste their money to send their kids here. The RCS school Education quality are even worse than an average NJ Cherry Hill public school. Please, be aware of this RCS school social -academic problems and protecting your kids while in here if you do not listen.
