The only concern I have is the difference the girls and boys are dressed. I would prefer the girls to tuck their shirts in with a belt just as well as the boys. I have a boy in the 8th grade and a girl in the 7th. So I do see the difference on behavior in the girls and rebellious of the boys. My opinion is that you get everyone on the same page and everyone will be happy.

This is a wonderful school. It is often difficult coming in as a new teacher, but the Principal and staff were so supportive and helpful. School got off to a wonderful start and the student's are ambitious and well mannered. It is now the middle of the year and I still enjoy going to work everyday and seeing my students ready to learn. This is a wonderful middle school for newcomers to Gallatin as well as teachers looking for a wonderful school where your teaching is truly appreciated.

I have been very happy with the education and exposure my daughter has received at RSMS. She attened the school all three years and is now moving on to GHS. Mr. Turner is just as proud of his all county football team '06 as he is the chorus and the cheerleaders. I would highly recommend RSMS to any Gallatin family.
