    I love being a RoadRunner!!! I have been at this school for 3 yrs now and I could not ask for anything better for my kids. All the teachers are so involved with the students and the parents. You always feel welcomed when you walk in. The PTA does so much for the kids and for the school. More than anyone will probably know. Also Mrs. Pendleton is great. She is always there to answer any questions you may have. When you walk in these doors you feel like you are at home!! Go Road Runners!!!!

I could not have asked for a before starting point in his education. reese road rocks!

    Reese Road Elementary is the best school n Columbus Ga. My son has been going there for 4 years now (will be in 3rd grade) and we could not love a school any more than we do RRES. Mrs. Pendleton pricipal is the foundation of this school. She expects nothing but the best from her students and is respected by all the students and parents. The PTA is off the chart. They do so much for the school and they rock when it comes to giving back to the children. The teachers at RRES are awesome. RRES is like a family. We feel so proud and blessed to have out son in such a wonderful school. Children grow up so fast and we feel so good about the education that our son is getting at RRES. Go Roadrunners!

    Reese Road Elementary is an awesome school with great teachers and a wonderful principal and asst principal. The school motto where everyone fits is so true. I am thankful that my son goes to such a wonderful school.

    We have been at Reese Road for 2 years now coming from a title I school here in columbus. For my 5th grader it was a little tough last year because as I said we were coming from a title I school in which they did nothing in the 4th grade. For my 3rd grader who is now in 4th at reese road it was a little easier conforming to the better academics they have because she was in a lower grade. Both of my children love Reese Road. Ms. Pendleton is definately the rock of this school. She is an excellent principal with some very good and dedicated teachers. We had 100% PTA last year and are trying again for this year. My daughter is still there and wants to be there until she goes to middle school. My son is now in middle school and is doing very well. I have to attribute some of his success to his 5th grade teachers at Reese Road. This is a wonderful school with wonderful people who only want for your child to succeed.
