When my oldest daughter attened from Fall of 1993 to 1999, the teachers got her from being a difficult student (she had ADD) to being a good student. However, now, with my 11 year old in 5th grade there, things have changed a bit. When I tried to enlist the school's help with my daughter's attendance issues, I got as far as a few rounds of phone tag with the school psychologist and finally decided my time would be better spent trying to address the issue on my own. Also, how can they give my daughter "Honor Roll" and "High Honor Roll" status, then turn around and say she is not meeting the stanards for ELA and needs summer school? This seems to be a problem with atleast a few of the RCSD schools.
When my son attended, I felt he got the best education here before we had to move him to another local school.
My daughter has been at this school for 3 years and she loves it. The staff is wonderful and care for there kids. She has learn so much being there.
Our public school has raised and educated many generations of creative, intelligent children. As adults, these children have become great citizens and neighbors.
I love Virigil Grissom school #7 because when my daughter Arail Cheesbro first come to the school she didnt know how to read and now she know how and shes getting all the help she needs. I really love it.I wish that i had the kind of school back in my days. so i just want to say thank you all the help with my daughter.
I love Virgil Grissom School #7 for several reasons. The most being the schools primary focus on educating our youth. Secondly the family friendly atmospere that makes communication with staff easier and more genuine. The schools focus on literacy and family involvement is key to a successful partnership. I love Virgil Grissom

This is a great school, my sone has improved with his reading, since sttending his school.
#7 school is a very caring atmosphere the children enjoy going to the school and I feel the teachers enjoy working there.
School #7 teachers rock. I feel that I can approach any of them with a concern or, a pat on the back. Whether it be the gym teachers, the music teacher or the teachers of the academics. The entire staff is great from the ladies in the office to the lunchroom staff, from the Principal to the student teachers,and the support staff My kids are getting a quality well rounded education my kids are at home at virgil I. Grissom school # 7.
School #7 is a great school and my son loves going to school because of the great staff they have there.
My children have gone to School 7 for thier entire elementary school years, my son is in his last year there and my daughter is in 2nd grade. I refuse to move from the house i am in so that my kids can stay in School 7. The staff and the school itself is the best school i could have ever asked for my children.
As a teacher new to the building half way through the year, I have been welcomed by all and made to feel like part of the staff. The teachers are all hard workers and looking out for the well being of their students. It has been a pleasure to work at #7 school.
I am a parent of several former School #7 students. This school has so many dedicated teachers who genuinely care about what they are doing. Mr. Moore, the principal has been a great leader for the school and as an African-American male, he is a role model for the children. For several years he has been doing a reading program and when the kids meet the goal set for the year, he has to spend a day on the roof.
Full of wonderful children who are filled with potential for academic success, and many caring adults.
