River Oaks Middle School1

Sometimes I feel like my child is attending college and not middle school here. If my child is having issues I should not see it on their report card/ progress report tell me prior so that I can help them. Now that I know and stay up on my child they have issues with me being around. One teacher told my child stop coming to me. So if my child can't come to me who can they go to? Can't pop up in class they have to call the teacher in advance to let him/her know you coming. Why? Are they doing something wrong? Want to meet with a teacher you have to schedule a meeting which takes days and when you finally have a meeting more than one person shows up. I think that is wrong. I feel as if i should know who is attending and why. If I go through this to better my child. What do you think my child is going through.
I love this school! All like everything from there! Great teachers, electives, social, etc. The only good thing about lunch is that you can buy extras such as candy, chips, icecream, etc. But this school is great! People should come here.
I am a student here at ROMS and I love it.All my friends well i've know them forver because we all went to the great elementary school next to us.I remember at lunch on the other side of the cafetiria i see my big sister.So is you have a middle schooler and a "younger" one i suggest this school.Just so all you parents know there are no bullys at all and if there was one all the teachers help as much as they can!!!"I LOVE ROMS WITH ALL MY HEART!!!<3 <3 <3
We are new to S.C. and new to River Oaks. My child is very happy there and so are we. My child has seen no signs of bullying, at least in her grade. There are bullies in every school. It is how you teach your children to deal with it and how you as a parent deal with it. The one issue that I would address is the fact that there are children in the class that seem to cause a disturbance on a regular basis and they are sent out of class and no further punishment is pursued especially with repeat offenders. Parents always are looking for the schools and teachers to fix their children and their issues. It is time for paretns to take responsibility for THEIR children. I feel that RIver Oaks is a very good sc and I am happy with it.
Our child is constantly called the N word at this school. they are told to ignore it and nothing is done to the student. The teachers claim they are too busy during transition to see anything as students get from class to class. You will be told your child is the root cause of them getting bullied because they are too emotional. Even when they get the activity on tape you will be told that what was not caught on tape justifies the actions of the bully. If your child IS a bully this is the best, most advanced school you can get. If your child is not a bully...good luck. The more you push back and get involved the more frustration you will get dragged into with no resolve. Once you know these rules, this is a GREAT school ... if your child is a bully,
I love ROMS. I have been teaching there for three years and love my students. I wish there was more parent involvement. Middle school is difficult and when parents back off at this age it makes it more difficult for the teachers.
I attend River Oaks Middle School. Yes, this school has bullies, but what school doesn't? My experience has been beyond great. All the teachers are very intentive to their students intrests and needs. The Administrators do their best to get the kids who are trying to take away from others' learning out, but not every single kid can be delt with. The principal could be more cordial, but she trys her best to stay with it at ROMS.
