Some of the Teachers are amazing!!! I love the 3rd and 4th grade teacher at RHES!!!!!!! Mrs. Robinson and Mrs. Joslin are amazing!!! Mrs. Muhelbaur is amazing as well. Kindergarten and 1st grade teachers are great as well... Sadly we had a bad experience with 2nd grade. But overall, I have moved so my children would be in the Zone for RHES, and EA COX..... LOVE the office staff as well!!!! Kepp up the great work guys... you are all amazing!!!!!

I have a daughter attending this school; in fact she's been there four years. I appreciate the core group that keeps the school moving in the right direction. I'm disappointed that RHES is not #1 on the list in Columbia. I am not sure how this year will develop yet. Last year we had an awesome year. My daughter had a teacher that focused on her potential not critisism. What a loss, I was saddened to hear she is no longer at RHES.

My son has been at Randolph Howell since Kindergarden and I love the parent and teacher communications every year. We have loved sharing our son with the wonderful staff and appreciate the hard work they put into his education each day. Blessing to RHES staff.

The teacher are wonderful and work with the children. The academic calender is well thought out. Understanding of concepts are well learned by thestudents through the teaching of the teachers.

My grandson is in the T-1 class in special ed. I can't believe the tremendous strides he has made this year. He is doing great. Two years ago this precious little boy could barely speak at all, much make a complete sentence. And last weekend he surprised us by reciting the pledge of allegiance. I'm so proud! Keep up the great work.

I am very pleased with this school. My older children were trasferred from a different county and were caught up in a single school year. I was very happy with their results.
