The teachers and the principal (Mr. Cross) are all amazing. They support the students to learn and do well. The only thing they can possibly work on is communicating with the parents more. Although they are quite responsive when the parent initiates the contact. Both my children love the school and are happy with the experience so far.

My children say the teachers don't let them run, that means they can't have fun, I don't think the teachers understand how it felt to be in elementary school.

My children say this school sucks. They say this school is so cheap they don't let you get water anymore and the playground stuff are so boring. I wouldn't even rate this school i would give them 0%. You should be nice not bossy. They also say you guys won't let them play cops and robbers or tag and other games its there responsibility if they get hurt and give these children freedom. I think the teachers should do fun things for their student, they need freedom wont you just give it to them.

This is the best school. My child had a really bad experience in her previous school in another school district why we transferred to Ranierview. She was behind in her work and had become introverted. I have to say that i feel blessed with the teachers and support staff in this school. Not only has she blossomed but is now in the gate program. I love the fact that there is an open parent / teacher relationship where we work together for the better of the child and their learning experience. I still have 2 out of four children still attending Ranierview and they continue to do well. I LOVE THIS SCHOOL.

My son was struggling bad before he came to Rainier View. They have great programs for him. I love that they have speech class! All the teachers care that their students do well in the classroom. I never seen more dedication in a staff!

Principal Cross has worked miracles in the few months he has been here. School spirit is on the rise and the extra curricular activities that he has introduced has made a huge impact on the school.

I have two daughters who attend Rainier View and I love our new principal, Mr. Cross, and the rest of the staff. Mr. Cross works heroically to get extra funding and to work with staff and students. He is always out and about and has come up with some great incentives for students and meeting opportunities for staff. I volunteer in the class and I always feel happy that we are a part of this school.

Excellent School. I have postponed selling our house so that my children could complete elementary school at Rainier View! The school is neat and modern and the teachers, Principle, and families are all top notch. I feel that the education level is excellent, and would recommend the school highly.

The teachers are excellent at communicating concerns with the parents. I have always found the teachers to be open and accessible. The staff is very involved in school activities and genuinely care about the kids and show it. This is my son's last year in elementary school and we will miss Rainier View.
