The Secretary is very rude! She always has been.shes not very welcoming.when you walk into an elementary school you should see smiles. We just moved here 2 years a go and we were nervous about our son going to a new school...and the secretary did not make us feel welcome.

I had high expectations for this school as I tend to hear other people describe it as the best school in Shawnee (none of the schools here are great). The office staff including Principal at Will Rogers is by far some of the worst I have ever come across. The teachers are great, but with out proper leadership will soon flounder. The best advise I can give is to avoid Shawnee altogether, but if you must be here take your children to Tecumseh or Bethel.

Very dissapointed in this school. Overcrowded and understaffed. No communication. We are going to get out of this school. There are much better school districts in Shawnee and surrounding areas.

I am very impressed with the academics, communication, and the caring attitude of the teachers at Will Rogers. They are a great group of educators and they genuinely care about the well-being of each child.

We came from Yukon school district 3 years ago and are VERY disappoointed in the teacher's our daughter has had. Communication with teachers is almost non-existant. When I asked my daughter for a letter from the teacher to confirm a pajama day (for the date) she refused and said our daughter would just have to miss out if we didn't believe her. 3 students showed up on the wrong day in PJ's. Our daughter missed a couple homework assignments, we told the teacher to inform us if she missed any more...at the end of the semester, she had a total of 7 missing. Not a word from the teacher. Went to the principal and did not get any support from him. Will Roger's needs work in communication!

I receive information from my child's teach on a regular basis. I am always getting something form the school to inform on upcoming events and activities. We have moved fromt he Edmond Public School District in Oklahoma and this school district is much better communicating information. I like the fact that the children are all treated on an individual basis.

The communication at this school is really terrible, and needs work. Most of the time, I have to go by what my daughter tells me is going on, (ie, field trips, ect...) because they certainly don't send home printed information in a timely manner.
