We are parents and community members. We would love to give a 5 star rating to our beloved school, but sadly we cannot. Rummel Creek has been one of the top schools in the west side of Houston for decades. It draws strong families to the community, the best teachers, & obviously outstanding parental involvement. The school is currently undergoing total rebuilding. It is an event the community & school should be anticipating with eager excitement. However, under the divisive leadership of the principal & SBISD school board, the school has lost the support of a strong majority of the community. Thus, we will only give a 1-star rating.

Great community school. Teachers truly care about the students and take the time to work with them and the parents.

My 2nd grader is going to the school and has been since Kindergarten. We just love the area and the school and teachers.

My daughter is going to Kindergarten at Rummel Creek this year. So far the experience has been extremely positive. The parents are very involved and the teachers and staff are just wonderful!

My daughter was in kindergarten this year. When we were looking at schools last year, one of the parents said, "it's like sending your kid to private school, but for free!" I'm happy to report that parent was right. It's been a great experience for our family.

I have two children at RCE. It's not just that the parent involvement is amazing or that the teachers seem to genuinely care, it's that I've heard so little about conflict between parents and/or teachers. The teachers and support staff know my name and take time to speak with me - it's never a bother. The quality is higher than many private schools we looked at. I had to spend a little extra to get into this neighborhood, but it was the best investment I've ever made.

Our son has gone here for three years. His teachers have all been very qualified and very involved. The school's budget and resources are enhanced by fund-raising efforts and lots of volunteers. The PTA is very active and works on getting a lot of parent involvement and parent helpers. This school also has a strong special ed program with low student-instructor ratios.

We have only been at RCE for one year, but have been pleased with the school. It is a place where everyone knows my childrens' names and has taken an interest in them. The school nurse is outstanding and does a great job working with children with special needs. She has been a wonderful source of information. The teachers in each grade level are all on the same page and have a consistant lesson plan for all the students. The school work is challenging but not inappropriate for the age. RCE has been a good experience for us.

I think Rummel Creek is a great place for your kid to start their journey. The principal & the teachers are wonderful! I would truly recommend this school to anyone that is in the district if they are not their already.

My child has been at RCE for 3 yrs, going on her 4th year. The school seems to have progressively gone downhill over the past 3 years perhaps due to a principal change. A lot of good teachers lost since 2002. 4th grade seeems weak in challenges (very little homework)compared to 3rd and 4th grades.

RC has a strong PTA which raises significant funds to invest in the school. Parent involvement is high. A fee based after school program allows working parents to have a safe environment for their children after class. The after school program is staffed by teachers at the school.

Rummel Creek's greatest strengths are its hard-working dedicated teachers and committed traditional families. The PTA constantly wins awards for high parent volunteerism. The students are disciplined and desire to learn. In my opinion, it is an excellent school!

Rummel Creek is a well managed school, with high teaching standards and excellent quality of life for the kids. The teachers are qualified and very conscious of their challenge and the impact they have on our children. Extracurricular activities are also very well planned and according to children's age. My husband and I feel very proud to be part of Rummel Creek and that our 6 year old girl can attend this Elementary.
