As a new parent to Ross I gave this review in 2009 that is read - 2012 what can I say fours years later . Ross over all is a good school but the vibe had shifted - The message is community and the children and that's not what I feel anymore- don't get me wrong my daughter loves her teachers and her friends but there is a divide among the teachers and parents and that is all about leadership and teamwork that has to be earned through respect for what everyone brings to the table and I feel it is very lacking - I tell my daughter we should let the kids run the school as they speak with such raw truth and realness that would put the leaders and grown ups to shame- there are those select few teachers who when they say its about the kids it's about the kids -- I stay for those few
