Terrible school. No communication. Discipline always involves taking a child out of the classroom and giving him F's. No positive rewards. Only more punishment. I called and emailed them on a constant basis. They don't care. It's them against you. I DECIDED TO HOMESCHOOL.
In my opinion, this is the WORST school in bethel school district. The principle harasses parents constantly by sending letters home on how horrible their children are doing. Even when you bring in dozens of dr notes for why your child missed school, she sends you to court over it, sometimes on multiple occasions. I have heard nothing but bad about this school.
I have 4 children attending Rocky Ridge right now. In my opinion I think we have the most amazing staff. Our teachers are so caring and dedicated to our childrens education. Our staff makes a point to know their parents and involve them in the workings of the school. Rocky Ridge staff, students, and parents have become more of a family than a school. I wish I could have belonged to a school like this when I was growing up. I went to many schools and none was ever as wonderful as Rocky Ridge. Go Raccoons!!!
Both my children attend this school. The teaching staff is highly capable at every grade level. The leadership is caring and fair as well as strong. The school has a very homey feel to it and welcomes parental involvement. There is an orchestra and band program as well as computer lab where children have class each week taught by a computer teacher. There are computers in every room and 100% of the classrooms have internet access. Each grade level has access to a multi-media projector and document camera if they want it. Reading and math are a high focus and test scores are rising. Awesome School with great kids and a superb staff!
Rainier Elementary is a great school the academic programs are above average, they offer a wide range of extracurricular activities with a wonderful art and music program. Parent involvment is high. This school is smaller and students act more like family with respect for their peers.
I think this is a wonderful school. I had a daughter that was having problems not wanting to go to school all of the staff was very supportive including the principal. Thay all really helped us get through this tough period. My kids have been going there for four years and I think it is a great school.
The teachers are great. They really care about the students success. If a student is stuggling they will work one-on-one with that student until they understand what it is they are doing. They only problem with the school that I have run into is that they do not support the Highly Capable program (challenge class). The school makes it hard for the students who are in that program to participate in some of the school activities, ie assambly, reading parties, etc. The administration leaves one scratching their head as to some of the things that they do but all in all the teachers were the whole reason that I kept my second son at the school. If it hadn't been for some of the teachers I would have move my son to a different school because of the Principal. She isn't very student orientated nor does she back up some of her staff. But as long as you don't have to deal with her everything is fine.
