Great School, Caring Teachers, Everything is new in a new building with more opportunities for a great learning environment. Most of the staff really cares about the students. I would expect this school to be named one of the best in the state for education.
2013-2014 is the first year in the new building. This school offers just about everything you would find in a private school except the boarding. It seems like the teachers have been hand picked . Most are tops in their field. The student to teacher ratio is comfortable and not overcrowded. Our student struggled this year and the support from the principal and one of the teachers was so appreciated. We have been pleased.
A brand new building with everything top of the line and state of the arts. The principal wants to see every child succeed and teachers are some of the best in the county. They really do care about the students. Our child is so proud of his school and looks forward to going to school each morning. The curriculum is strong and challenging with well rounded arts and PE. The library has a very good selection of books and other reading material for the students.
Discipline has improved dramatically over the last 2 years with the new assistant principal. I feel he really cares about my kids, the safety of the school, and their education. I see him monitoring and he's involved with everything. Great school now that he's there!
Wonderful teachers trapped in a building that is in desperate need of repair. New principal and assistant principal have changed the atmosphere of the building. Staff genuinely care for students. Some behavior problems, but what school doesn't have those? When they get the new building this place will be transformed!
Depressing, dismal appearance in need of vital repairs. Overall condition and appearance directly implies that the students' education rates SO low on the priority list of our local and Tn state government. Does the school board wish to convey to the students who want to contribute to society by striving to achieve academically that their their efforts are basically overlooked and unimportant? Public officials claim repeatedly that tax increases are to improve our schools;however, this has proven to be blantantly untrue. I attended school in this same building twenty-six years ago and it was in poor repair and so outdated at that time. The school board and other 'public officials' tout improvement. Other than attempted patches to cover grossly outdated and broken equipment, would someone in the appropriate position of 'authority' display some backbone and rise to acknowledge these desperate issues at RBMS, and implement positive changes that may be proven!
