Rawlinson is a great school to be in. I've read a lot of reviews about being popular, etc. was needed in order to "survive" but is actually not true. I started going to Rawlinson in 8th grade and I was the new kid I thought I was going to be bullied but it was the opposite. You could say they "open the doors for me" everyone made me feel like I was at home. They're really nice the staff, and most of the students. There might be bulling in that school but it happens every where. But the thing I liked the most is the flex time it was like you're free period!!! There was dance, soccer, football, basketball, chat room, etc... a lot of fun activities. Thanks to that period my grades were high because you need to have a passing grade in order to be able to have your free period. So if you're planning in attending this school I really recommend it! Plus there's going to be a new principal starting in the school year of 2014/15. So a lot of things might chance!!! Good luck!!!

This school is excellent. The teachers treat the kids with respect and vise versa. Education is highly emphasized as a way to further yourself in life. We have been so impressed with the teacher/parent interaction we have experienced. Our child is enthusiastic about school and has excelled. We attribute this to the great teachers.

I LUV THIS SCHOOL. If you are a nerd, not the school for you. Bullying occurs daily, as well as dhalls and iss. Also, we hav to occupy three rooms for dhall. But i still love the school cuz it is the only school in nisd that acts like a traditional middle school. You gotta hav friends to go here. I fyou dont got friends, you dont got a chance to live at this school. yeah i luv it still cuz i got homies, BYE!

Although the school is has beautiful architecture, great nurse, and office personnel especially, Ms Salge and Richards THEY ARE AWESOME!. uNFORTUNATELY IT IS LIKE A PRISON DUE TO THE LACK OF AFFECTION, CARING, UNERSTANDING, and genuine direction and maternal instinct. SHe has obviously never had children. FROM PRINCIPAL PENA. Its ASHAME. She is truly COLD as ICE to parents and students!!! Since she sets the tone for the school lets just say she runs it hostile and keeps it like a prison as if she Hates kids. I think with a NEW principal this could be an awsome school. I do have to say it is filled with the MEAN girls crowd and extremly keeping up with the Jones bad attitiudes. SO a student will be fine if they dress to impress and are in only the right cliche with stuck up people who have no respect or regard for others. God help them

Great school with Exemplary rating! My daughter is in 6th grade and is taking AP classes and still making straight A's. I credit this to excellent teachers. They also have a neat program called FLEX that allows the kids the opportunity to get intervention during school hours if they need it, otherwise the kids have the flexibility to attend and learn and explore lots of other fun activities. The school is not overcrowded and there is a very active PTA with lots of parent volunteering. Great school with even better kids!!!!!

I was new last year going into 7th grade and was so scared but when i got there everyone made me feel at home. The teachers are amazing and our principle is strict but he has his reasons. The overall students are very nice, very few bullies and so many activities.

For a girl who has gone to a private school all her life and then to Rawlinson, a public school, well it was very different from what i was used to.This school is overpopulated, way to many children all over the school. In 7th grade there was hardly any homework. You do certainly learn things but I had already learned most of the things they were teaching, as in math and science because i had gone to private schools... The discipline here isnt the best. Children get away with many many things. They get some sort of punishment but well ya. teahcers give away detention/ISS (in school suspension) slips like everyday, which was weird. becasue in my old school having ISS and dention were rare. if someone had it, everyone would know. this school is just bad, but if your popular and have lots of friends ull be fine.

This school is above average in comparison to other schools within the city. There have been great changes this year with new administration setting higher expectations for behavior that has resulted in a more caring and safer school.

I think Rawlinson is a great school. This is my second year here and it is great. The only thing is that if your not wiht the right people they will chew you up and spit you out. The kids here are not afraid to do things to you if you mess with them. If you dont dress right you will get picked on. If your hair is messed up y ou will get picked on. There are very obvious cliques at this school especially at lunch. The dances are lots of fun along with the football games. If have a certian group of friends then you wont have too many problems. Besides all that, Rawlinson is a really good school.

This school was great for my child. She attend the school for three years (6th, 7th, and 8th). She loved every second of it. She had great teachers who were very involved with her in many different ways from academic, social, emotional, and extra-curricular. The teachers were always in touch. Mrs. Gonzales always sent out bi-weekly e-mails about things, and always sent out e-mails about upcoming due dates. She kept us very informed. Mrs. Fascino was a great Math teacher and always had time to help tutor kids and parents. Administration was a bit confusing this last year as some moved on, but other than that the school is great.

I think my school is okay in some ways. The acadmecis are great and all and you can do ton of things but the kids at school will cast you out if you don't wear the right clothes. The school is really strict about things. Not chewing guw =( not being able to wear flip flop and a few other things. But most of the teachers are really nice and understanding. Expecially if you have tennis practice and other things going on. Most of the staff is nice except on mondays, but who is really nice on mondays.

This is my second year at RMS it is a great school the teachers are some of the best I have ever had! The only problem i have had is that the school does have very destinct cliques and standards as to what you wear and who you hang out with. I really think that if you get into the right crowd there is nothing wrong with the school and though i am in all honors the homework isnt overly diffucult and not mountainous. I am in the tennis program and the coaches are the best! The cafeteria food is delicous and it has many varietes. Over all a very good school.

Rawlinson MS provides a superior learning experience. Academic teachers are intelligent, well educated, and highly engaged in their students - particularly, Ms. Chipoli(Eng), Ms. Pollet(Math), Ms. Simon(Tx History), Ms. Johnson(Sci), and Mr. Monis(Eng)-w/o tons of homework. These educators provide extra stimulating instruction - reading & writing about 'whatever interest you', science dissection & in-class projects, time for individual math help, and facts & events for historical figures & events that make them interesting & memorable. Nancy Pena(principal), Ms. Ellis(nurse), Ms. Callaway(counselor), & Ms. Nedry(computer) are accessible and do their jobs happily & well every time. Best teacher is Jennifer Kuentz, band director. Added activities, Friday Forum (guest speakers for small groups of students on a variety of broadening topics), parent nights for core subjects (what your kids are learning), book author visits, etc are super. Many parents involved on different levels & great sports!

Good administrators. The only downside to this school is if you're not one of the more affluent kids. There are very few discipline problems. Most teachers are available and really care about the students. Overall, a good school.

My child attended Rawlinson Middle from 2004 to 2006. While he enjoyed the school quite a bit, there was certain problems that arised. The children were somewhat cliquey when it came to friends. If you didn't wear the right brand of clothes, you were casted out. Don't get me wrong, the school is not that bad. They seem very on key acedemic wise. Over all I am sure your child would do fine.

I have an 8th grader at this school who has ADHD. I started the school year meeting with all the teachers to outline plans to keep my child on task and formulate a revise a 504 plan. Some teachers were better than others as far as dealing with an LD child. Some seemed ill-informed about ADHD and how to deal with the various problems these children face. The school is beautiful since it is brand new. They have many extracurricular activities. Teachers in general were willing to meet with parents as needed, kept up weekly e-mail correspondence on child's progress and met with him before school to provide tutorial assistance. Counselors helpful in resolving problems and responsive in a timely manner to e-mail communication.
