As a parent I could not be happier with our experience at ReaView. We have been at the school for 4 years. We have experience from K-5. The staff is outstanding. I cannot say enough about the principal, Donna Cook. She knows the name of every child,sibling and parent. There is such great dedication from the staff to the students. My children love Rea View. They have loved all of their teachers. As a parent I feel that Rea View is a very safe environment. Any visitors are required to enter through the front office and can only be buzzed in after checking in with the staff. As volunteers we have to wear a name badge and can volunteer after we have cleared a background check. I am confident that my children's' educations are in excellent,capable and caring hands.

I have had a child at Rea View since it opened, and have had a great experience from the beginning. I just read the last review (yesterday), and it sounds more like a beef than honest feedback. School has not even started and there may be changes to make sure the students are taken care of. That's how the PTA, teachers and staff work together to make this school amazingly successful on every level year in and year out. Without knowing the grade of the two classes singled out (and the appropriateness of the class size), whether there are teachers assistants also in the room (therefore still maintaining a good FTE teacher to student ratio), and the circumstances makes it really hard to know whether that feedback is terribly valuable.

Students per FTE teacher on this website is 18. However, class sizes for two of the people I know attending in 2011 are 25 and 24.

My daughter started kindergarten this year at Rea View Elementary and I could not be more pleased. I considered home schooling because I was afraid of her being exposed to a poor teaching environment. I could not be more pleased with the teachers or staff. My daughter is reading and doing addition and subtraction with 2 months of school remaining. I used this web site to find good schools while living out of state. Rea View was rated very well and I agree with the rating.

I have been very disappointed in Rea View. We moved to Union County just for the school system and heard wonderful things about it. If you have a perfectly behaved child you will be fine. If you have a child with any type of attention issue or special education need the school will fall short. VERY short. Communication is horrible, they focus on negative re-inforcers in stead of positive ones. Our child has suffered tremendously at the hand of the teacher and the administration's lack of handling situations promptly, appropriately and truthfully.

I am very pleased with Rea View elementary school. My daughter has attended for 2 years now and excels academically. The facilities, Teachers, principal are all excellent. The specials (PE, art, music, spanish) are great with good teachers.

My kids go here. The school does the absolute minimum to game their test scores. Here are just some examples: - Last year, my daughters class was given 30 mins extra to complete the EOGs. - My 3rd grader had a math test. Multiplication by zero... (yes you read it right). - My son was given his exam questions before hand so that they could use it as an aid. - My son had an open book exam. They had the page numbers on the questions where they could get the answers. - The school does absolutely nothing extra in terms of academic activities. No participation in any of the following: Odyssey of the Mind, Science Olympiad etc. - Other TD programs are poor at best. We have not received any information on other programs available to kids. Luckily, we have friends who have kids going to schools that help parents out by sending out additional information/resources. - The lack of energy shown by the principal runs through the entire staff and is evident in the lack of excitement across everything. If you have an option... look elsewhere.

My grandchildren attend this school and I have been very impressed. The staff and teachers are friendly, supportive and are on top of any problems. The lunch program is very good and I would like to have other schools in NC learn from them. I have eaten there several times and the food is awesome and displayed to appeal to the childrens appetite. I am impressed with the security at the school and keeping the children safe. Thank Rea View!!!!!!

We love that this is a neighborhood school and my daughter can have close by friends! I've seen first hand the teachers and staff with the kids and have nothing but praise for the exceptional job they do.

I have been very pleased with the level of attention and instruction at Rea View. The facility is fantastic. The children are offered state of the art access to computers in every classroom and a number of other tech related teaching tools. I give Rea View a big thumbs up. The only downside to Rea View is that only 3 neighborhoods feed into the school. Hunter Oaks, Somerset and Longview. Rea View has not gone untouched by recent budget cuts and some of the Exceptional Childrens Programs have been modified due to schools now sharing the same EC teachers(quite unfortunately). My child has been receiving some additional assistance and testing and I can say beyond a shadow of a doubt that I've felt incredibly supported in our journey to make sure services are availble when and where needed as much as possible. Its a great school. Excellent parent involvement.

I have been a part of Rea View Elementary school for the past two years and I am thrilled with every experience my child has had. My child is a part of the after school program and I have never had one bad experience with the staff nor the coordinator. Every day that I go to pick him up, he gets upset and tells me I come to early. They have a lot of unique activities, field trips and most important they do a lot of community outreach. I was very proud that my son was a part of helping to raise over 2,000.00 for relay for life. it meant so much to him to help with a wonderful cause. He worked very hard washing cars and raising his part of the money. Rea View Elementary has the full package.

I am not a fan of the afterschool program at all. We will not be wasting our money away on that next year. On a brighter note, we love the school! We are very happy to be a part of the Rea View family. My son loves his teacher... she does a wonderful job in meeting his needs. And he loves is specialty classes art, music and PE. He is constantly bringing home nice art projects, he's more into playing his piano, and wishes he had PE every day!

Our son is THRILLED to be a student at Rea View. He was not challenged to reach his full academic potential, but overall it was a good school year for him. The principal & teachers did a fine job opening this school & developing a solid bond with the community. We encourage administration & faculty to set the bar higher for student achievement.

Our two sons have absolutely thrived at this school. The leadership is excellent. In addition to a principal (and assistant principal!) who are a joy, the teachers we had this year were, too! As parents, we always felt welcome at Rea View and encouraged to be involved. What a wonderful year!

We are very impressed with the level of learning at this school. Two of our children attend Rea View and are very happy there. Coming from the Northeast, we feel our children are even more challenged at Rea View than they ever were in NJ. Teachers are quite strict, however.
