Bullying is an issue in this school. Multiple times I had to go to the school because of issues with children picking on my child. Staff seem to have no control over this issue. students are allowed to go unpunished for their treatment of other students. Or the victim is given concequneses.
Now lets get it IB certified. This is a STELLAR school that will challenge any student that wants it. If your child is a lackluster kid that has no motivation and you are a substandard parent, don't expect a miracle.
My son has Autism and was in the ICAP program for 6th grade and had a very tough year. The work that they were giving him was way beyond his skill level. His teacher was not interested in hearing what I had to say and would talk over me, so I couldn't to communicate my opinions. I strongly discourage anyone who has a special needs child to send them to Running Brushy Middle School. This year I am transferring my son to Leander Middle School because I can't send my son there this year. I have nothing to lose at this point.
I have worked at RBMS since it opened. I can truly say that this is the best place I've ever worked. We have created a community of learners and a family that cares about each other. If parents have concerns, I feel they can come to us to work things out. We care deeply about the safety and well-being of our students.
I will say that many of the teachers are great. The problem is the teachers who truly do not care and just show up to work to collect a pay check. They look the other way while the struggling students " fall through the cracks". The Assistant Principal just makes excuses for the teachers, which allows this issue to exist in the school. I would love to see improvements, but that can only come when the school is willing to see that they have a problem that needs to be dealt with.
