School Reviews

5   10/19/2010
I highly recommend this school because the teachers are loyal and committed to the student body, to student community, and to learners as individuals. This school lives and breathes the meaning of not having one child left behind. If a child is exceptional, there are a team of scholars that are trying to keep that child's interests challenged. If there is a challenged child, there are equally teams of scholars trying to evaluate, understand the dynamics of how that child is motivated, then designs an individual plan for that child and executes the plan. No child is overlooked. Everyone, including the Director and assist Director has a loyalty to the school body, both in staff and students unparalled. I'm amazed at the scope of program design and whole-child emotional-social balance the teachers bring to the learning experience. Thank you RMMS!!
