My daughter transferred to RIS in late September from a parochial school in the city. She is much happier here than there, but RIS is far from perfect. One of my biggest fears in the past here was the principal, however they replaced the principal this year and the new one is absolutely wonderful. My biggest complaint here is the lack of parental involvement. Also, today my daughter, who never gets into trouble, got sent to the 'planning room' for forgetting her violin for Orchestra. She was devastated as it's the place for them to go for disciplinary action. Otherwise, I will say that I was pleasantly surprised of how things are there. I was very apprehensive about her attending there, however those fears were unfounded.

The Rutland Intermediate School provided our child with the learning foundation needed to be successful in her later learning. She has been an honor student each marking period.The school offered wilson reading, everyday math, as well as a wonderful written language and content area of studies. Every teacher was highly qualified. Yes the classrooms are crowded, but far better to learn in a reasonable environment then a private class of 10. Real life is college classes in access of 30+. RIS also has one of the most respected Special Education Teams in the state. Every child is a valued member of this community and outside of selected academics, art, music, PE, E-Blocks,speech, mentor programming, and after school programming is offered to every student each day. I would highly recommend this school along with its leadership and staff that serves our children.

While there are some good teachers at this school the average class size is in excess of 20 children and it is clear to anyone at a classroom visit that this school lacks the discipline and structure necessary for active learning. Far too much time is spent being sent to their 'planning room' or on detention than on actual academics. The principal at this school is abrupt with the children as well as parents. We teach our children at home 'no hands on' and yet the lack of discipline within the school speaks volumes. In addition, if you really want to feel like you have entered the ghetto... take a tour of the bathrooms, especially across the bridge at the Middle School.

This is a huge school in a small town. There is no discipline. The principle told me my child may not be safe and would not get a good education here. The building is falling down around the children. It is not a happy place. Unfortunately, Rutland does not offer an alternative school. It is either this school or a private school. The school board seems more concerned with providing a new football field for the highschool than providing a safe, caring place for our young children to learn.
