If it wasn't for the 1st grade teacher Ms. Cleary, I would give more stars. And if the principal were more involved. We've now changed schools and I see such a difference. My daughterer is thriving. The principal knows, it seems like everyone by name.
Ms. Cleary had stunted my daughters learning, and she shut down. So basically it's like she never went to 1st grade. Ms. Cleary called to tell me my daughter needed to be on medicine, and she couldn't handle her. Hmmm, but she was manageable in Kindergarten, 2nd, and 3rd grade. So eplain that. Ms. Cleary- please seek a new profession. Maybe work at the DMV, we expect attitude and no help there.
I am a parent of two children at different elementary schools in the same district and both are very good- we are fortunate to be in such a strong district. I have to say that there is something special about Rohrerstown- possibly because it hosts a wonderfully diverse student body in a generally relatively homogenous school district. The principal is strong and exhibits great leadership-- she has a focus on character education as well as academics, and values/respects/celebrates the diversity of the student body. The staff is getting quite strong at differentiated education for the range of needs the children have-- and there are a range of needs. To supplement differentiated education, the school, and the district, have excellent special needs and special interest programs. The arts are also very strong- with passionate music and art teachers that motivate and engage even the toughest kids! Hats off to the Rohrerstown administration, faculty and staff for being so committed to special community they serve.
