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.
