RMSEL is an incredible school. We have had kids in the school for a decade and they are all thriving. Being a smaller school there are fewer clubs/activities than at larger schools, and the sports programs are limited, yet they still have options. I'd like to see a better music program with continuity in the teaching as well as a greater emphasis on arts as creativity is the foundation of problem-solving. The expeditionary, real-life learning environment is second to none and my kids are learning valuable skills that go way beyond the classroom. I highly recommend RMSEL. Administration and leadership are always working toward a better environment and experience for the students. We were fortunate to win the lottery to get into this school and have become a part of the excellent community. Seriously, it's a great place!
