I just graduated from Rogers this past year. This school is really quite fantastic, no matter how tough and challenging it is. It's a small environment: you really get to know your peers and even your teachers well. There's almost no bullying. Generally, people, both students and staff members alike, are very nice-they'll help you out when you need it, whether socially, academically, etc. The teachers really push you so you can perform your best. We perform pretty well at sports (volleyball is very prominent), and our art field is fantastic. Our orchestra has performed phenomenally each year so far at UIL. The visual arts is fantastic-we do win a number of accolades each year, and some artwork is even bought (mine is!). Of course, the students are very intelligent, and we work hard, but we still love to have lots of fun. No school is perfect, and I'm seeing that many fantastic teachers are leaving and being replaced with frustrating teachers (reason behind the four stars). It's worrisome, but still, I see we still do well. It's VERY, VERY challenging here, and students will get very frustrated, tired, and pretty beat-up. Just stay sharp! I really would recommend Rogers though :D
THIS SCHOOL IS AWESOME!!!!! I've been there and everything is very very good- i tell you it is very cool to be there. Everything is very wonderful and there is almost no defects to it ( well.... little). It's great students are very "intelligent" and the teachers are very helpful. Not like other schools this school has GT students on all classes! Other schools may be boring but this school is very interesting. If you feel bored in here, are you getting all 100's in all subjects? So.. if not DO NOT get bored and try to get the best out of you. If yes.... keep trying to keep all your 100's up and do not lower them. The only thing to say is that this school is very very AWESOME!!! Submitted by a Student from T.H Rogers-
I am reading these reviews, and finding the collective experience hilarious. I'm an anesthesiologist in Atlanta, GA at Emory University Hospital. I went to Washington University in Saint Louis for medical school, Rice University for college, Bellaire for high school, and, yes, T.H. Rogers for middle school. If you just look at the reviews, you'll see how discerning Rogers students are. They've gone onto websites for other middle schools to compare coursework, they're always seeking more academic challenges, and they're humble enough to say they're not the best school (even if others think they are the best)...and just look at the writing style. It's fantastic! I'll admit, schools like Lanier have very bright, well-rounded students, but in a much different environment. Lanier is larger, and so of course it will have more of every kind of student (whether academically brilliant or socially outstanding). However, per capita, T.H. Rogers has some of the most outstanding students. I appreciated learning sign language at T. H. Rogers, and I appreciated interacting with multiply-impaired children at a young age. I think it fosters a kindness and humility that can be lifelong.
TH Rogers is the best school in Houston. Walking in the halls are the next Einstein's. There is little to no bullying, all the teachers are fun and very nice, and TPSP is only confused right now because it's still new. While other schools may be teaching a similar curriculum as TH Rogers, TH Rogers Vanguard is made up completely of GT students. TH Rogers scored significantly higher than any other school's vanguard program, and the fewer amount of students makes the environment much nicer to be in. All of the teachers get to know you personally, so they can better help you to learn new things than other schools could. While other schools are pointing at us, laughing and saying we are all nerds, we are going to be the people who make something of themselves later on. Other students may get into a high school, but high schools love to get TH Rogers students because they are all so smart. Students can also get to know people who are deaf, and learn to communicate in sign language, an ability that few people can claim. Our Name That Book Teams place every time, and so do our science fair entries. I do not know of a better school for a person to come to than TH Rogers Vanguard Program.
Although I rate it 5 stars, I personally believe that this school is definitely NOT "the number 1(or 2) school in Houston" I believe that schools like Lanier or even Pershing outrank us. I agree with the person who write a review below me; that we do not have anything special about us. Lanier, for example. has a very good curriculum. As a student who finally got accepted into this 300-400 student school, I thought that this would be the best school in the city. I was wrong. I checked other school's websites and examined their homework and classwork. While we are still learning about the periodic table, protons, neutrons, and electrons, Lanier is learning about ionic and co-valent bonds. I am in 8th grade IPC class at the moment, and when I saw that, I was speechless. I thought to myself, "What on earth is that? Did we learn that? I thought we were more advanced then Lanier. How can we not learn that?" I read some of Lanier's IPC course some more. "Kinectic Molecular theory.. Phase Change diagram.." and I changed my mind. I recently learned that and had a test on it just a few weeks before Lanier did. Anyways though, my point is that we are not #1. Many schools teach the same thing.
I went to Rogers, and I have quite a few things to say. Firstly, the education middle school students will receive at rogers is unparalleled academics wise. The teachers shine and really work hard to help the student body. There is lack of drug use or bullying or any of the things parents usually fear are associated with middle school. However, a lot of the really great teachers are leaving, and the new classes of students are really deteriorating in quality. And another thing- Rogers is strongly lacking in clubs and electives and anything that really makes it shine aside from plain academics. Lanier has debate. Pershing has sports. Pin Oaks has quiz bowl. Rogers kids think they're the best, and I used to also. But what they don't realize is that in high school, a lot of the kids that are stellar in leadership or clubs come from other schools. Rogers kids, in the end, just get good grades. The new introduction of the TPSP project at Rogers also lessens it's qualities. It wastes time and neither staff or student likes it. Students should learn more about current events and politics and global issues. There should be more clubs. It's a four stars, but not a five.
T.H. ROGERS is the best school I have ever been to. It truly prepares you for anything, it might not be "cool" to have so much housework, but it in the long run you'll be thankful. The teachers are great, basically the best in academics, and you'll have an easy time making friends. It's small so you know everyone's name. I highly recommend this school!
This school is the best and the teachers are okay lots of homework but sadly some people (students) are very mean they bully you and say that your stupid
GO ROGERS! I went to Rogers and I'll tell you - this school is filled with some of the brightest kids in this city, state, perhaps nation. If you go to rogers, be proud! Sure, there's tonnnsss of tests and quizzes, and a great load of homework, but there's also cool stuff that's fun. The teachers that are the best are the ones who have been here longest. The friends you make here will last a lifetime, and i promise that when it comes to homecoming, you'll be hightailing back here (like i will this year!) For parents: rogers has great matriculation. We alumni go to bellaire, debakey, carnegie, hspva, and are the coveted students of the best local high schools. We compete against st johns in all types of things (and beat them, evn tho they're private) but when it comes to high schools, we're accepted. We go to some of the best high schools in the us, and later on to top colleges. The experiences your child will have at rogers will be unique and wonderful. The principals will know your child's name and the teachers are usually more than glad to help you. Sports nor academics nor clubs are lacking. Rogers is everything. GO ROGERS RAMSS!!!!
The Principals are awesome they take care of any issues quickly. Too many reading requirements of non-textbook type books.
I went to T.H. Rogers and the teachers were great and I learned a lot and made lasting friendships.
I am a student there and the homework is a stressload. But it all pays off!!While we barely get breaks of homework, tests, and quizzes it is fun!! The involvement of the teachers and staff and how much they care is pretty sweet!
awesome school lots of home work but man! what a school and I am lucky to go there!!!!!
Rogers is a fantastic school. There is a lot of homework and many projects, but it all pays off in the end. The work really is stressful but you sure learn a lot and it pays off in high school. The teachers are really good and they teach you really well.
My experiance at this school has been great. It's definately challenging, but the teachers and staff are always there to help. Rogers is a fantastic enviorment in which to study and learn. Sadly, I will be leaving soon, but I know that this school will continue to help more students to be successful.
This school has been of great benefits and has completely changed the way I learn and has definately opened up my studies and taken it to a new level. I thanks all of the staff and teachers there because they are all very wonderful and very supportive of my sport and schooling as well. The guidance there is amazing as well and you can totally count on them for a shoulder to lean on. This school should be rated 11 out of 10!
Both of my kids go to this school (K & 1st). It's been only 6 months since they started here but I already feel it's the best move we ever made. I am convinced that they are having the best education possible public or private. They have a chess program that is probably second to none. It is hard to believe but both my kids love playing chess now. They already tasted some success at city and state levels.
It has an excellent program with amazing teachers to go along with it. The school really helped me in high school especially with writing, process, and organization.
Being a recent graduate from Rogers' middle school, i can tell you it was a heck of an experience. awesome teachers, (ipc and algebra<--- hard) but worth it. the school is focused on preparing you for the future, highschool and college. Best school in Houston.
this may be one of the hardest schools but it is the best in all houston.
