    Both of my children have gone here throughout their elementary years and have gotten an excellent education here. The teacher/parent involvement is great the principal is also very involved and the kids love him. My son (who is currently in the fifth grade at RJEMS) has a very hard time with reading and comprehension while he was there he received the individual attention he needed to excel to the best of his ability. My daughter is currently there in the fourth grade and has also had excellent teachers. I would strongly recommend this school and will be very sad that both of my kids will be no longer there as they will be both at the middle school next year but I am very happy with the education and personal attention they received while they were there.

    So far my daughter is only in K but she has 29 kids in her class. There is no way the teacher can keep up. Parental involvement is expected which leaves a lot of kids with lesser parents feeling left out.
