Although this school had a high rating before, apparently it has gone down hill. Several parents have had several safety issues in regards to their children and the teacher, especially the principal, have not been responsive and also have shown lack of respect towards to the students and parents. Serious complaint should be filed with the district superintendent.
I totally agree with the words written by another parent regarding this school. I'm also very disappointed myself with this school.
RBE (Ruth Borchardt Elementary) is simply heaven on earth for our children and us. We have never come across teachers that are more caring, competent or enthusiastic than at RBE. The school staff are equally wonderful. Our children are blissfully happy! :)
I have been very happy with this school. We transfered here from PISD and the difference is night and day. This district and school appear far more committed to my child's adjustment and academic develoment than to their overall ranking and TAKS scores. It is good to see teachers who genuinely seem to be happy at work. We are staying; good riddens PISD.
While the school does have a good academic program, I did notice that there are fewer extra curricular activities compared with other elementary schools in the area. My son, who is in first grade has several friends in Riddle elementary and I often notice that my son has relatively less to talk about activities besides his academics with them.
We are so happy with this school. The staff are simply the best. This is a top noch school.
Borchardt is an excellent school. I feel very lucky that both of my daughters get to go there. I hope they will be challenged more both inside and outside classrooms.
For two years we where thinking of moving but didn't do it because of this school. The staff is truly caring and we appreciate the fact that our twins had an easy start by being in the same class at Kindergarten, that they could benefit from the GT-program and made a friend that is in the special needs program at Borchardt. An overall great experience for our family. Thanks to all that where involved!.
This is a great school! There is a great sense of community and the teachers are wonderful.
This school is excellent!! my child is obtaining such a positive and wonderful education!! the administration and teachers are top notch!
One of the most caring and effective learning environments I have ever seen. The teachers are whole-heartedly dedicated to meeting the needs of all of the students. The administration truly cares about children and maintaining a loving, supportive, safe environment.
