Handles bullying effectively: Strongly agree


- a
every single time a concern has been raised, the head of school has promptly and effectively dealt with bullying. I am so proud of the way its handled and I am very impressed with the unbiased approach by the head of school.

Supports LD students: Neutral


- a
I do not know since I lack exposure to students with learning differences. I only know what I experience with my kids.


Effective school leaders: Strongly agree


- a
Leadership at this school is extremely effective, fair, and genuine

Develops character: Strongly agree


- a
my children identify strongly with the values espoused by the IB curriculum

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree


- a
they are fair, intelligent, and the communicate sufficiently


Amount of homework: Strongly agree


- a
the homework is challenging and not too complex. The children can actually complete it themselves and not require a parent to basically do it for them.



- a
The principal is very easy to talk to. She takes all concerns seriously and responds promptly. There are a few parents who walk around with a sense of entitlement. She doesn't put them on a pedestal and therefore the complaints below about her. She is fair. She is intelligent. She is very careful about communicating adequately and not over communicating. I can tell from the word choice in one of the more negative reviews below that it is coming from a parent who thinks that school administrators are their public servants. They are not. They work for HISD and they do not play favorites. The principal of ROE is very fair and that may annoy some of the more entitled individuals who are not used to the word No.



- a
My daughter has also attended this school since Kindergarten. For the past years, parents were allowed to walk their kids to classroom without any issues. Parents have been very cooperative in the morning and follow school guideline. Just this week, Dr. Fovart, sent out email banning parents from walking their children to classroom. We are still in the first 2 weeks of school, kids and parents are adjusting to the routine after 3 month of summer. I would miss walking my child to her classroom and see other parents in the hallway. Why are parents perceived as cause of safety concern?




- a
My child goes to this school. This is great community because of supporting parents and some caring teachers. However, poor communication from the Principal with her weekly newsletters with lack of details. Her newsletter sometimes generates more confusions and questions than detailing events.

Develops character: Disagree


- a
Keri Fovargue, the head of school, always comes up with some questionable requests to parents that sometimes make parents feel unwelcome to her little kingdom. Like today, she asked parents to eat in the courtyard during lunch hour. Her lame excuses are unspecified safety protocol and little ones couldn't find their parents. Who in the right mind would want to sit in the courtyard with their kids in such a hot weather? She is inconsiderate at best.
