    My son is a 1st grader there I just want to say this is a great school the staff is wonderful they are very caring and helpful my son is doing great at reading and math he enjoys getting up and comming to school. He has never missed a day of school because comming to school is his favorite thing and he would be very sad if he did. So if he has a doctors appointment or anything he comes for a half day. You will really love this school I really wish we didn't have to leave.

    My son just finished his Kindergarten year at Rogers. He thoroughly enjoyed his year and I am thrilled with the progress he made academically. He finished the year able to read and write short sentences. His math skills are really taking shape and he genuinely enjoys learning. The principal office staff and teachers were appropriately kind and firm. They do their part to make learning enjoyable all while maintaining and safe and controlled environment. I only have firsthand knowledge of my son's classroom and I'm sure that plays into my thoughts on the school as a whole. But i was able to visit on multiple occasions and I was always greeted at the office with a smile--and often by name! I really enjoyed the fact that the school is comprised of only K and 1st grade classes. It is the perfect size for a rookie mom like me! I was unable to join the PTO because of schedule conflicts but they did a great job running many fun activity nights. Any school can make improvements and I think Rogers has tried to stay current with tools and information available. My experience with them was very positive overall.

    Both my son and daughter have attended JB Day they come home happy and enjoy spending time with their friends and learning. My daughter is 2 1/2 and can already say her ABC's and count to11. She comes home singing songs and practices saying please and thank you which is reinforced at her school. The staff are awesome and I feel completely at ease knowing that my children are in their care.

    I really like this schools academic programs. My son is reading and writing beyond his grade level and his teachers have been involved communicative and loving with him. Teachers model respect for the children and they love and respect the teachers. Rogers has a very active PTO and tons of families turn out for the events. Ms. Migliaccio is the new principal now that Dr. Soranno has been promoted to the Jr. High and I must say Rogers has never been better. She is full of energy and rather than pizza with the principal which I thought was rather boring and impersonal she reads stories to the children has lunch with them and knows each one by name. It is a great way to get to know her students. The office staff is efficient and friendly and the security is great. You need a visitor badge to go anywhere!

    The principal Dr. K. Soranno is dedicated to the education care and well-being of all the students at REES and knows each of them by name. She hires well-skilled quality teachers and assistants who have the same vision. The school environment is excellent. The teachers are personable informative and caring of the needs of the students as well. The teachers and staff model respectful interaction with the students thus the students learn to respect their teachers themselves and others. I am impressed that my kindergartener is reading spelling and writing creative stories. I am confident that my daughter will be well prepared academically for 1st grade. I am concerned however that foreign language is not part of the curriculum. Overall I am pleased with the academic progrss of my REES student.

    Rogers Early Learning Center is a great school. I have had two boys to go there and I could not have ask for a better experience for my children. I have never had a complaint with the teachers or the office staff. My children absolutly loved it. I would recommend it to everyone.
