THIS SCHOOL IS HORRIBLE ALL OF THE ADMINISTRATION STAFF Is RUDE AND UNPLEASANT. I WILL BE TAKING MY CHILD OUT OF THIS SCHOOL. I GIVE IT NO STARS....

My kids have attended RR since it opened in 2007! We love this school. It's only had 2 principals, which is great. Mrs. Richardson is wonderful. This school has many great teachers.

We have been part of the Rocky River Family for 2 years and we couldn't be happier. Though I don't understand why they have switched through so many principals, I can say our Principal and vice-Principal have a wonderful chemistry together and are great with the kids. The teachers are so wonderful, communicative with the parents, willing to help the children with different needs, fun and wonderful. My kids are learning a great deal, they love their teachers and their classmates. Its a wonderful school and I am happy to be part of it. We also have a great PTA that is always doing special something for the children.

All of our children have attended RRES and love it and the entire staff. They are amazing and it shows how much they love the kids and their jobs. We are moving back into the district and our youngest will attend RRES, we are very happy !

I have two children that attend Rocky River and I could not be any happier with their teachers. My children have learned so much this year. The school is wonderful. Even the teachers that don't directly teach my children are friendly to me and the other parents that I see in the hallways before school. The school has such a positive vibe. It is very bright and cheery. All concerns we had about our children being in a new school quickly subsided and we as a family consider ourselves very fortunate to be Roadrunners!

I think this is a great school with teachers and staff that love what they do. My children love school and their teachers. It is a brand new school beautifully built.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 North Carolina used End-of-Grade (EOG) tests to assess students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and grades 5 and 8 in science. The EOG is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of North Carolina. Students must pass the grade 8 EOG test in order to graduate from high school. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level on the tests.
