Excellent programs, including starting French in kindergarten. Music and art are also great at this school, as well as the core subjects. They're great about doing small groups, so kids can move at their own pace. Kids are forced ahead, or slowed down, this way.

Handles bullying effectively: Disagree


- a
We have had issues with bullying since my older son's first week of kindergarten. It was never handled on the bus, so we removed him from the bus. At school, we had issues with one girl physically hurting our son, and more than just a 'little' push or scratch. It wasn't until I threatened to involve the police and went to the superintendent that anything changed. It's been fine for a year or so now, he's been there 4 years, but he says she's starting to come around him again. She is not allowed near him, and knows this.


Supports LD students: Agree


- a
It doesn't apply to my kids, so I can only go off what I see and hear. Which isn't a lot either way. Seems like they do a good job though.

Effective school leaders: Agree


- a
There have been continual changes in administration since we've been there. Some were great, some were a bit rough, some were in the middle. Hopefully this will straighten out soon.

Develops character: Strongly disagree


- a
They do the Robious way, and give out awards for kids showing integrity, compass, etc. Great program.


Teacher effectiveness: Strongly disagree


- a
The teachers we've had have been excellent. Very caring, but they also make sure the kids learn.

Amount of homework: Agree


- a
They do give some homework starting in K. It's just an occasional reading book, or an rare at home project (like a diorama) in kindergarten. After that, it's light homework most days.

My child was an A-student at the school, but it seemed like a lot of class time was spent dealing with behavior issues. They had a principal's wall that recognized kids with behavior issues that promised to do the right thing. This is what got recognition on a daily basis on the way to the cafeteria. So if you have one of these types of children, it is a great school. For a public school and a free education, it is better than most I believe, but not if you have a well behaved average or above average child and you are concerned about behavior and the rigor of the education. We put our child in private school 3 years ago. It comes down to parents' expectations. If yours is that "a similar public school was good enough for me so good enough for the child", this is an excellent choice. If you want more for your child, look elsewhere.

We moved from overseas with a 3rd grader and a 5th grader. They had never been in US schools before. RES did an outstanding job welcoming our children and helping them transition. They were both comfortable right away. Academic expectations are high, but compared to where we came from, the homework was much more manageable and age appropriate. Mr. Peace runs the best music program we've seen. PTA provides fantastic extra-curricular activities. Very involved parents and plenty of opportunities to volunteer. There's no excuse for complaining and not being able to do something about it. You can be at the school every day if you want to be involved and make a difference.

We could not be more pleased with our experience at RES!! Our child has flourished there!
