RHSM is a great school for those children who fit in the box. If your child does not, however, there is little support.
RH has such potential... but too much emphasis seems to be on Mercedes, BMW's and designer clothing. Less emphasis seems to be on teaching these mostly wealthy children respect and the importance of academia.
My son has attended for two years and loves the school. Teachers-student ratio is low (1 to 18 for fourth grade), and the teachers in each grade work together to present the same curriculum. General academic subjects are well-organized and seem to be at a mid-high level of expectation. Included in the curriculum are specialty classes - art, science, chess, chapel, and music - all taught by very qualified teachers. My son loves all the specialty classes. During the winter, the whole school participates in Winter Sports, when kids choose from skiing, swimming, tennis and more activities which they do for six weeks. Parental involvement seems to be good. There is a core group of volunteers and even the working parents seem to attend performances, etc. Community service is encouraged through school sponsored opportunities (e.g., volunteer at the food bank or with Habitat for Humanity). Just a great school!
