Round Top Elementary provided an amazing experience for our son and our family as a whole. We were so impressed from day 1 until graduation. He excelled as a leader with his academic and leadership skills. We were weclome at any time to visit and participate. He was well prepared for sixth grade. I am not suprised to know that RTE was named a National School of Character in May of 2013.

Superb leadership! The Principal and Vice Principals set the tone and it is positive. By far the best school my children have ever attended!

EVERYTHING about this school is amazing! The special education assistance is awesome, the educational challenges are great, and every staff member goes out of their way to help not only the students, but also their families. The front office staff even let me know that I was a member of the Round Top family. Best school experience for both of my sons, who happen to have high functioning autism.

Round Top is a wonderful school, and children excel here. RTE has an excellent faculty and staff, a very involved PTO, and caring parents. Parents are always encouraged to visit, volunteer, and address any questions or concerns. We have counted ourselves lucky to be a part of the Round Top community!

My experience at Round Top Elementary School was wonderful! I attended RTE in grades 2-5 after transferring from another top notch school, Lake Carolina Elementary. I can tell you that the Faculty & Staff are very happy teaching here because their teacher retention rate is very high! I sometimes visit and many of my teachers are still teaching there! The teachers I had were nice, friendly, and wanted you to learn. One of the top attractions of this school is their Related Arts Program (PE, Art, Music, Computers, & Dance) which are great! You couldn't have not asked for a better school. Recently, the school implemented the ITI program which instills Life Skills and Lifelong Guidelines in the students. The school also offers an ITEC Class which is taught by Ms. Kathy Lindsey who is a sweetheart and who is dedicated to learning. ITEC is a class where 1:1 computing is initiated and students use computers rather than pencil and paper. What a great School!

This school is different from the standard elementary school. The environment is loving, inviting, and welcoming. Everyone from the janitors to the administrators go out of their way to say hello. Parents are encouraged to be at the school during the day to have lunch with their child, volunteer, read to their child's class, etc. Kids have many opportunities to be involved with extracurricular activities. Most importantly, the teachers are accessable. Questions and concerns are always addressed. When we were moving, we took our time to research and find the perfect school to choose our neighborhood. We have no doubt Round Top has instilled qualities for our children to be successful in middle school, high school, and college.

RTE is the best school in the area. I have visited other elementary schools in the area and they are not on the same level. RTE's staff, facualty, and more importantly TEACHERs are top notch. I currently have two children that attend RTE and chose my location solely on them attending RTE after visiting the area elementary schools (need I say more?).

We have also attended Lake Carolina and I can assure you that RTE is the best school in the district! Ms. Tucker creates an environment that not only benefits the students but the staff love to work there and it is obvious when you first step in the school! We have outstanding teachers that really want to make an impact on our children!

Round Top has a lot to offer. The Related Arts programs are stellar. The teacher/student ratios are very balanced. The school does a lot to embrace its diverse community. The lifeskills and lifelong guidelines the school shares are wonderful tools to help build productive, responsible citizens.

Our children grow each day at Round Top! The staff and the faculty at RTE are among the best. The principle Ms. Janeen Tucker's passion for the children's warm, safe and fun learning enviroment makes her school stand out in richland school district 2. In my opinion RTE is the best elementary in the district and our family is VERY pleased!

Round Top Elementary is a wonderful school! My boys have had great teachers. Parents are very welcome to get involved. The music, art, and Spanish departments are terrific. The PTO does a wonderful job at getting parents involved and interested in the school. The children are taught lifeskills, respect, and manners. It is a pleasure to be a part of the Round Top family.
