I love Rockwell! I have had three of my kids go to elementary here and it is a fantastic neighborhood school. Parent involvement is high and it makes a difference in the quality of classroom and school social activities. The teachers care about the kids and do a great job engaging them in learning. The kids learn to be "safe, respectful and "responsible" as well as to be inclusive of others and appreciate diversity. I would highly recommend Rockwell to any other parents and feel fortunate my kids had the opportunity to go to elementary school here.
This is our 1st yr at Norman Rockwell Elementary and I must say that our experience has only been positive.I was quite reluctant to move my son from his old school as I had heard mixed reviews but the fact that he came back after his 1st day at school and said "mom I like this school " was a big relief for me.The principal is hands on and is very helpful and the staff too is very nice! They helped him to transition very smoothly.
This school has a great principal and administrative staff who maintain the school discipline. The teachers are very dedicated and work great with all kids. .Additionally there are lot of programs run by the PTA which offer academic enrichment.
This is an outstanding school with great motivated teachers, strong administration and good academics. Not sure what the comment below about not trusting kids from other countries is about. We relocated here from Europe and our kid has been treated great. After just a single year at Rockwell he speaks fluent English and is passing all tests at or above the expected level.
I just can recommend this school to all children, doesn't matter a gifted one or the one who needs some help. You will reach your goal with a good, great and goal oriented teachers and principal. The office staff are very helpfull and very kind. Especially now, Rockwell is one of Achievement Award Winner. Congratulation!!!!
Parents are very involved with everyday school matters, teachers are excellent with the children. The office staff remember all students by their names, and they always make you feel welcomed when you walk in. Mrs. Livingstone is always around and easy to talk to. Glad our child is able to attend this school.
