Rocky Hill Elementary School 4

My son attended every year from K-5 at Rocky Hill. He was identified as a special needs child by his first grade teacher and given an IEP that followed him through Rocky Hill. The assistant Principal at the time we were there was an amazing woman who spoke to each teacher and parent with such kindness and grace. We were blessed and our son had surprising continued advances in his time there.

My son is in 3rd grade at Rocky Hill. We absolutely love the school, the teachers and the principal, Mr. Smith! I cannot say enough about how wonderful I think the school is. Even the after-school program at the school is fabulous. We feel very blessed to be zoned for Rocky Hill Elementary School!

My child's experience at Rocky Hill hasn't been as great and successful as I thought it would be. Some of the teachers have really disappointed us as far as my daughter's education goes. Needless to say, I will be taking her out of that school and places her where I feel she can get a better education.

What a Wonderful Experience it has been for my son to attend Rocky Hill Elementary from K- 5th Grade. The teachers are fableous and so is the rest of the staff . I can not say enough good things about the school. We are extremely happy with our experience at Rocky Hill.

Our kids have had a fantastic experience at Rocky Hill! It is now recognized as the best elementary school in the county based on test scores, and it is a fantastic place with skilled teachers, caring staff and lovely families! It also boasts the county's best special ed services for kids with autism -- one of the teachers there wrote a book about inclusion. When you add into the mix West High School (rated best in the county by Newsweek), it is a great sequence of schools. We visited the Farragut schools when househunting but chose Rocky Hill because of the smaller size and are so glad we did.

Rocky Hill is an amazing school. Their music teacher goes above and beyond. They get the kids in an orderly fashion and treat them like best friends. Their fifth grade teachers astound me. They let the kids have the arts with music and art. They let them have the physical activity with P.E. They have Guidance. They have junior Achievement.[A program that teaches kids about business.] Their TAG [talented and gifted] is a joy to have.they have extra music programs, like Soul singers and Chorus. If the parents want to help. they get to help.If your the kind of parent who likes to help out, this is a perfect school for you. If you don't, you certainly don't have to. Rocky hill is amazingly wonderfully outstanding!

The school K - 4th is great. However the fifth grade teachers are Very uptight and not pro-student it seems. They are stern, dicatative, and intolerant. Does the fifth grade teachers prep students for military school? I understand preparation for middle school but their rules were silly, especially when the teachers pet students were allowed dock other students behavior. I prefer to have the Teacher evaluate behavior. In addition except for a select few 'in' parents/students be prepared for defensive attitudes. Thank you K - 4th teachers. 5th grade - you need to relax a little! Sorry Rocky Hill - you need to counsel your fifth grade teachers to be more compassionate and student friendly.
