Posted April 22, 2007

The quality of the school administration (especially the principal), staff, students, and parents alike make this one of the most motivating, inspiring, and challenging elementary schools! Its UIL team shines. A love of reading is instilled in all! Parents are active and involved in every facet. RTB is a cool place to be! Students will definitely be taught by a compassionate team! I feel proud to send my child to RTB where Eagles Soar!
