My daughter is an 8th grader at ERMS, previously she attended Cyber Academy because I pulled her out of RRMS due to the issues that weren't being handled at the school. She LOVES being at this school which is so refreshing to see. I had only heard negative comments about this school so I was apprehensive at first to enroll her there, but we had recently moved to this district. I felt instant relief when I saw the principal, I appreciate the improvements she's made at the school and she really has a heart for the children. My daughters team of teachers especially two, really put effort into making sure the kids understand and retain what they're learning. I would highly recommend this school.
