This school has brought me the best years of my life. The teachers are for the most part good and most understand the kids in their class. The teachers care about the students and the students aspirations. It might not be the best "number wise" but the students that do care excel.
this school is ok I mean its not the best school ever. if your thinking about enrolling your kid to RSMS then its a bad idea. school levels are low. I like that we get a little freedom but its like a good looking prison. my school can improve by letting up a little bit and let kids be kids but with rules. at the most this school is a 1 and a half star rating in my opinion.
I attended this school for 2 years. I loved most of my teachers, they always went the extra mile to help me with any of my concerns. Personally my favorite teachers were Mrs.Harding & Mr.Mcpherson. Sadly I moved and could not attend this school anymore .
My son is in his 2nd year at Robert Smalls. He loves it! He has been on the honor roll the entire time. Teachers are always willing to stay after school for extra help if he needs it. We get newsletters every week telling us what's going on. Awesome teachers and staff!
This school has some really dedicated folks - the principals, APs, guidance, teachers, school improvement folks, parents and students. Looking forward to hearing more great things about Robert Smalls students.
I DONT EVEN KNOW WHERE TO BEGIN! I HAVE HAD ALOT OF PROBLEMS IN THE ONE YEAR THAT MY CHILD HAS GONE TO ROBERTS SMALLS. I HAVE ALL THE TEACHERS EMAILS AND WORK NUMBERS AND YET I ONLY EVER HEAR FROM 2 OF THEM. I HAVE NEVER BEEN ABLE TO GET AHOLD OF THE PRINCIPAL OR ANY OF THE TEACHERS DURING SCHOOL HOURS. WHY IS THIS? ESPECIALLY WHEN THE TEACHER HAS CALLED ME BECAUSE OF MY CHILD INTERUPTING CLASS BUT I HAVE TO WAIT FOR SCHOOL TO BE OUT TO BE ABLE TO REACH HER.
The school does an excellent job of encouraging good behavior. Students get caught in making "GOOD CHOICES" and are rewarded with RAP stickers. After they earn a specific number of stickers they get to attend the "GENERALS" LOUNGE. They also do an excellent job of encouraging parent/family involvement through their various and creative FAMILY nights - SCIENCE NIGHT, HUMANITIES NIGHT, THE ARTS NIGHT(Holiday Hoopla) etc. The office staff are kind, helpful and pleasant when you visit.
not too pleased. Kids only get 23 minutes for lunch! do not feel school is safe enough. no computer or technology classes offered. Beaufort county schools are the worst! no field trips offered!
My son attended RS this year and had an outstanding experience. Progress reports went out every 2 weeks and parents were mandated to sign them. If I needed to contact a teacher, I just e-mailed them and instantly received a reply. There were plenty of opportunities for volunteer work, there were fliers sent out constantly asking for parents to help. I feel my son received an excellent education, one teacher even switched him to a different class because he felt my son needed to be more challenged. Parental involvement in any school is a must. Kids need to be monitored by both teachers and parents. Teachers teach, parents parent.
Robert Smalls is very great. There are many nice students there. I dropped my purse one day in the hall and two students picked it up. I went to each class and every student was very involved.
I have been very pleased with the classes my daughter is taking, their level of challenge and homework. She is doing very well and loves her teachers. My concern is the lack of contreol maintained over the children between classes. The few times I have been in the school during the dayI have seen kids running and horsing around, without any hint of worry. They are not being held accountable for their behavior. This needs to be firmly addressed and corrected.
I couldn't agree more with the previous review. Control seems to be a major issue as well. I went to a conference right after school was let out and was almost knocked to the ground by students running at full speed down the hall ways, not a teacher in sight. A whole lot different from when I was in middle school. -Concerned Parent
The quality of the education received is directly dependent on parental involvement. Push communication with teachers, because it won't happen automatically! This school is bad about communicating with parents and planning conferences last minute so that you can't possibly attend. Discipline is an issue because there are kids there that don't want to be there. They make it harder for everyone else. The school has a lot of security workers, and a fairly good system for communication with each other. I just really had issues with how little communication and opportunities for parental involvement the school has. I even asked HOW I could help, how I could volunteer, but it fell on deaf ears.
