My children have been attend the Rhodes School for 2 years and I love it. The motto speaks for itself--We are CREW, not passenger! It is hard to find a school that will offer fine arts in addtion to the academics. I believe all of this makes for well-rounded individuals. Teachers are dedicated and want to be at the Rhodes School. For a school that is only 5 years old, they have made great strides and continue to do so in the math and science curriculum with joint ventures with NASA and others. You should check it out!

My child attends The Rhodes School and loves it! At first he had a hard time with the higher expectations, but now he is proud of himself and is becoming more responsible. He loves his teachers, has made new friends and enjoys participating in the Fine Arts!

I have never seen a school that cares so much about their students. Teachers do all they can to make sure that the students are successful. These teachers are teaching the whole child. Not only are they learning academically they are learning responsibility and the students are accountable for their actions. Students are able to participate in a fine arts program. I am still amazed to see students as young as kindergarten playing the violin or the piano. This school offers so much more than any other primary school. This school offers students to be different and engaged in activities that they may not ever get to be involved in. At the end of the year I am so pleased with everything my child has learned. He is finally somewhere that makes him feel like he is somebody, not just a number.

Very dissatisfied with the Rhodes School, teachers are good, that's about it, not what I expected at all, beware, do your own research, the other staff is not so great, their appearances, and attitudes are not what you would expect at a school that is highly recommended, if your child is not in the upper grades or band, they will not be recognized, P.E is a joke, and so is Violin, and the dress code is never followed, the field trips are expensive and not what I was told they would be, everything this school appears to be its not, proceed with caution..........

When reviewing a school, one main focus comes to mind: Is there evidence of the student excelling academically? The answer to this questions is YES. Students are soaring high academically and the curriculum challenges and address each child's individual learning style. Of course one is entitled to their own opinion. However, make sure opinions are solely based upon the facts and not personal beliefs.

My child is in Pre-K 3 at The Rhodes School and he loves it. The Rhodes School has provided him with a nurturing, exciting, and structured learning environment. He goes on field trips every month, to link the learning from school to the outside world. I was worried that the transition from daycare to school would be hard, but The Rhodes School has provided a smooth transition for him.

It is a blessing to work along with teachers and staff who are committed to enriching the lives of students and families of The Rhodes School. As we work together as partners, we a increasing the ability of our students to succeed in society. I look forward to coming to work and seeing the smiling faces and hearing the students play their violins and drums...it is a wonderful environment for learning, at The Rhodes School!

This school does not have it together. The staff here have they're priorities in the wrong place. Collecting the enormous field trip fees are apparently more important than things like teacher attentiveness and school bus safety. Also it seems that stringent deadlines are precedent to thoughtfulness and consideration. Don't expect them to take any problem and look at it as a case by case basis. I could go on all day about the many incidents that have occured at this school. To name a few: my preschooler not watched during nap time and foreign objects being put in his ear by another student AT SCHOOL, my two young children dropped off across the street un supervised after school by the bus, the bus forgetting my preschooler at school NUMEROUS times, my well behaved child suspended then lifted and all I get is an "apology" because they were given wrong information.

I have never been more displeased with a school as I am with the Rhodes School. The conditions are less than sanitary. No one has a clear position (Who is who?), and the principal seems to only pacify parents to 'get them out of her hair.' I will be looking else where next year.

I know that no school environment is perfect and not everyone will be pleased but after reading the reviews I have to agree with the majority and say that my child is truly learning here. He is learning violin, spanish, and knowledge that most if not all other public schools don't allow their children to learn. I am very satisfied. They could be a little more organized with programs but once you see a 3 year old singing, or participating in a spelling bee, you tend to forget all of the unorganization and focus on the positive. Love it!

Im a brother of a rhodes school student and i have to say that my brothers education has shot way up from the things he was learning at his previous school. Im onlt a 7th grader and i can tell these things real well. When my brother comes home and ask me or my mother if we ever heard of a certain thing we say 'no' and he tells us what it is. Half of his new vocabulay which he learned at the rhodes school i have never ever heard of. He is only a 4th grader and im a 7th grader. Now you cant tell me that this is a bad learning enviorment. I highly suggest this school to all other sisters, brothers, mothers , and fathers who are looking for there child/sibling a excellent learning place!!!!!! you can visit there website at www.Rhodesschool.Org

I am a very satisfied parent. My children have attended the Rhodes School for 2 years. The teachers and staff are excellent. Home cooked meals daily. My children love the food and the cook. Can't say that about too many locations. With the amazing progress I observed in my children, I began to see what was developing in them academically. Money is not wasted here, it goes towards education 100%. This school is birthing Scholars. So, tell all you know. Check out The Rhodes School/Performing Arts. You will be amazed! I'm proud of my children. My 5 yr old is reading on a 3rd grade level. He walks and speaks with confidence and authority.

Allow me to introduce myself. I am the VERY concerned parent, who is involved in my child's academic and social progress. I have very high standards and tend to be extremely critical when it comes to my child's education. So when I say I LOVE THE RHODES SCHOOL, it carries weight! My son is a Pre-K student who after only four short months at the Rhodes School is reading! He navigates a computer better than most 3rd graders and his vocabulary is impressive. The Rhodes School recently took a group of students to the Presidential Inauguration and should be commended for their commitment to the arts. I cried at the Christmas program when I saw children playing the violin, drums, and keyboard, dancing, singing, and praying! This school is producing well-rounded leaders of the future. I am proud to say my son is one of them!

I am very pleased with the Rhodes School. Since enrolling my son, he has surpassed the skills that he was learning at his previous school. The teachers and staff are helpful, concerned, and highly qualified. I also like the family atmosphere. I don't feel like my son is just another number, but a child that is encouraged to reach his full potential. I would recommend this school to any of my friends or other parents who want a top notch education for their child.

My 5 year old will start his second year at this school, and I could not be more excited! They did so much wonderful work with him, I used to pay 200.00 a month for Kumon and his learning is comparable to the Rhodes school. The teachers are very dedicated and the programs and curriculm are fun and educational. I am so very pleased that I found the Rhodes school!

As a father I am very concern about my kid's education. After speaking with the principle in depth, I toured the campus and sat in the classroom and I was very pleased with what I observed. So I enrolled my son. After about three weeks I noticed that my son's reading skills had improved tremendously as well as his math comprehension skills. Now I have learned that the Rhodes School has been Recognized through TEA in it's first year, which I hear is some what difficult to achieve. Regarding some of the negative comments that I read on line; show me a school that is perfect for every kid and no problems and I will enroll my kid their tomorrow. But for now the Rhodes School is the perfect school for my kid........today. Keep up the good work!

In January 2008, I removed my 4 year old son from a daycare to The Rhodes School. After 3 weeks of enrollment, my son was able to write/spell his first and last name and was able to count from 1 to 100. In addition, he was able to write/spell 3 to 4 letter words. The Pre-K teacher was very patient and took the time to get my son where he needed to be academically so that he could keep up with his classmates who had been enrolled in the Pre-K program since August 2007. The after-school program curriculum provides computer-based educational training modules, one-on-one tutoring with students needing additional assistance with reading, mathematical, and problem solving skills. The teachers are certified instructors and compassionate about their work. I am pleased with my son's developmental learning skills and would recommend The Rhodes School to others.

Wow! I was shocked to see the parent comment from May 28!! My family's experience at this school has been so different. I was really shocked about the babysitting comment because the student test scores are great. Even though this is only the school's first year, they are going to be a recognized according to TEA because of the test scores. Also, anytime I need to talk with the principal or someone on the staff, I don't have a problem getting them. The principal is almost always available unless she's with someone else. I always get return phone calls the next day or so. I'm really sorry this parent had such a bad experience. Most of the other parents I talk to love the school and the staff. No school is perfect, but overall, I really think this school is great!

I have a student at The Rhodes School. I love the programs and activities that my child participates in. The comment about it being jsut above a babysitting service is absolutely not true. Even in the after school program which IS a daycare program, they are structured and have a curriculum that includes homework help, computer, etc. I've never seen a charter school in its first year w/all the stuff this school has. A full computer lab w/real computers, a nice, clean campus that's not in a strip center, degreed teachers and a loving enviornment that my child cries if he has to miss. Also, we're a recognized campus!!! If you have to Run.. RUN TO THE RHODES SCHOOL where the teachers are highly qualified, most are certified w/masters degrees and 100% of the staff are returning so they are stable and WANT to work there.

About the tests


In 2012-2013, the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) was used to test students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8; in writing in grades 4 and 7; in science in grades 5 and 8; in social studies in grade 8; and end-of-course assessments for English I, II, and II, Algebra I and II, biology and US History. STAAR is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Texas. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

The different student groups are identified by the Texas Education Agency; if there are a small number of students in a particular group, the state doesn't report data for that group.
