Administration has changed since a lot of these reviews. The teachers genuinely care for their students and are always willing to help. Both 7th and 8th grade teachers always seem to be available for tutoring. The kids are happier now since the uniform policy was lifted too.
I agree that there are some drugs at the school, there are also fights at the school. There are drugs, fights, bad kids, good kids, etc. at every school. I can promise that the problems we have pale in comparison to surrounding school districts. The teachers are there before and after school to help the kids that want help. For the first time, my son scored "commended" on all of the 8th grade level TAKS tests. This is a reflection on the teachers and administration of the school. My son loves the school. They have teaght him how to excell at academics, not just athletics.
I truly agree, I had to pull my son out of that school they lack in professionalism and even more so in educating. My son is much happier and is succeeding at his new school. overall RCMS is a horrible place and a big waste of federal/state funds.
The teachers at this school are wonderful! The school is open to new ideas and interesting projects. Most of the teachers that I have seen are on their feet and busy interacting with students. Middle school is a difficult age group, how could any teacher slack with at least 25 curious students in their rooms. The computer is a portle to knowlege at your fingertips. The staff is very dedicated to being up to date with thier curriculum and making learning fun for the student.
Terrible school with hostile environment, my son does not feel safe in this school and cries for me to get him in a new school, we recently moved from canada and i have seen his attitude and his life change, he never smiles after the move, i am beginningto wonder if imade a bad choic emoving here
We moved to Royse City in July of 07 and our son started middle school here in the 8th grade. The teachers have all been very helpful and made sure that he picked up where he left off at his old school. In a conference with the asst. principal she seemed just as concerned as I about his future, not only in high school but in college as well.
Very poor leadership. The Principle is not available to parents wanting a conference. The Asst Principle is more concerened over dress code than academics. Teachers play on computers while they are suppose to be teaching the children. Poor leadership leads to poor facility. 2 star is generous at this school.
