We moved into this school district a year and a half ago and have been nothing but thoroughly pleased. The teachers and administrators are top notch. We had a kindergartner, 2nd grader and 3rd grader at the time and we were immediately welcomed into the RGES community. I am so thankful my children attend this school.

This school has very little empathy for kids/parents that are new and not familiar with rules/routine. I feel like a number and that the school has too many kids aboard, clearly an inconvenience. They need to show some respect toward kids and parents!

I wish the school would quit hiring expecting mothers, or mothers who just had babies. My daughter has been through about 7 substitute teachers and its only the third month of school. This leaves the children unstable for an education.

teacher was very uncaring and just did what she had to do. principal does not even care if you have concerns. all she cares about is gossip and keeping up with all her parents who's parents were her friends.

This is the best school ever! Caters the education to the learning style of the student. Teachers care about making the child's experience a good one so that they want to learn more. I am very glad our daughter goes here!

We are so fortunate to be zoned for this school!! The principal and teachers are wonderful to work with. They challenge the children to reach their potential through developmentally appropriate activities. They encourage parental support by providing an assortment of Family Fun opportunities. With a stringent safety policy you rest easy knowing your children are well cared for.

I HATE!!! the way that the staff treat the parents who are trying to drop off and pick up their kids. I personally witnessed one staff member yell and belittle a father infront of his children because the poor guy made a mistake in the carline. He did not endanger anyone with what he did and surely did not deserve the harshness that he received.

While the school is ok, they do not do much to control bullying. My child is being bullied. The teacher and principal have been contacted about this issue but nothing seems to done to put a stop it it. I am looking into putting my child in another school (preferably a private school) because of this.

Excellent school all around. The principal is fantastic, extremely friendly and caring, and a great leader. She sets a great tone for the whole school.
