Roan Forest has a great art program and the Core Knowledge program is amazing. The only concern is teachers leaving. My children do not have any former teachers who have stayed and this concerns me.
Attending Roan Forest was a great experience for my child. The teachers are fantastic and the administration demands excellence. It is the only exemplary rated school in the district and it shows. There is an active group of volunteers seen daily at the school.
My children were enrolled in this school for 1 1/2 years (we moved) and I would highly recommend it. High standards for teachers and students alike. Loads of dedicated volunteers. Brand new school (in 2003) with all the bells and whistles. Only problem witnessed was due to the very strong leadership of principal (some felt too strong) caused backlash among staff. Needs a little 'softening' in that regard.
Roan Forest has a rich, learning environment. My son attended kindergarten there last year and the things he learned and shared with us were amazing!
Roan Forest Trailblazers are taught core curriculum. I was new to this method of instruction but was quickly impressed with the type of in depth knowledge my first grader was coming home with. The PTA has the usual few active volunteers who carry the load for the many. The teachers are motivated and proud of their profession and it shows. If you can get Mrs Hopkins for 1st grade you will be impressed. The schoold district keeps wanting to pass more Bond Elections to make themselves one of the highest taxing entities but they were unsuccessful this last go around. I would support this if the money went staright into the class room but it does not.
