    Thomas page academy......I love this school....since transferring in kindergarten my child has excelled and blossomed beautifully. the school has grown and changed aswell.......the profile info listed on this site is out of date.....this school goes from k to 8th grade and is Thomas page accademy now. they're class size is small and great positive interactive environment. highly rcmd.

    I'm glad I got my child out when I did. With out completely bashing them I'll just say...The way this school was handling some of my child's issues could have done permanent damage to my child.This school is suffering and needs help big time.The teachers are worn out uninspired and lack any creativity. Class sizes are way to large with 30+ kids per class so teachers for the most part have lost all control and kids are not learning. Some of the issues are due to budget downfall but that excuse only goes so far..... I can say that the parent involvement at Thomas Page is wonderful the parents are really the glue that hold the school together. I really hope they will band together and challenge the principal and the staff to step it up and really make a change for these students.

    I love Thomas Page! I have worked at a few Rohnert Park schools and I have loved all of them but there is something special about Thomas Page. We have a very cohesive staff and I enjoy my coworkers. The parents at Thomas Page are always willing to help and support their school. Our PTA works tirelessly to help the students and support the staff. The students are sweet and eager to learn. I can't forget to mention the beautiful campus being out in the country we have farm animals all around us and a great landscape. I'm also so excited for the future of Thomas Page I see a lot of positive things coming our way.

    Our daughter needed special ed but the teacher at the school was not supportive and denied the fact of our kid's disability. The principal was nice and cooperative though. We ended up moving to another school.

    I believe the children and their parents need to set boundries and play safer. It is not up to the teachers and principal to teach your children manners and respect.

    This school has safety issues and the principal is unreasonable and has harsh ways of dealing with issues that children have and she is not realistic. There is a lack of supervision on the playground as well. This school does have a lot of great teachers it is great leadership that it is lacking

    I was a student at Thomas Page School many years ago and was excited to have my kids start there when they reached Kindergarten age. However we transferred our daughter after only a few months due to what we saw as a lack of organization in the administration and the PTA unreasonable policies and low academic standards. Some of these problems are not necessarily the fault of the school but we did not feel that Mrs. Campbell was up to the challenge of overcoming the challenges faced by redistricting and an increased spanish language population.

    Love it! My kid was at the 10 out of 10 school before but I love Thomas Page school much more. Teachers are great. Kindergarden and 1st grade teachers are the best.

    Thomas Page is a hidden gem! The Principle and teaching staff really get to know our children and care about their education. I disagree with the comment that this school does not have our children's safety in mind when we drop off/pick up our children. There are always teachers/staff members out front with our children to insure their safety.

    Hi I'm Mary Campbell Principal of Thomas Page School. In the last two years our test scores have gone up dramatically. We assess students 3 times a year on the Essential Standards. If students need assistance in an area we create interventions for them where they can re-learn. We are small enough school to know each child and work with them as an individual. Our PTA is growing. We had coffee and doughnuts on the first day for parents and we had a big crowd of parents. The PTA raises from $20 000 to $27 000 per year to pay for Chorus for grades K -3 assemblies grants for each classroom field trips and computer lab. We have a Family Fun Night once a month that's free and a chance for kids and parents to come and have fun at the school together. Our K-3 classrooms are at 20 students with one teacher.

    this school is great but there is no safety for the kids.i understand that this is not a private school but there should be some management for drop of and pick up.its a request thar please put a school zone sing in the entrance.

    I love this school and all it's staff. My child is getting a great education by people who know him an unusual thing in today's schools. He performed better than my high expectations on the STAR tests and loves to go to school everyday what more could a parent hope for? Thomas Page has a beautiful country campus there is a large grassy field for the children to play in and animal grazing in the neighboring fields what a breath of fresh air...literally! Increasing parent involvement has been a challenge but I see that improving with the commitment of the staff and PTA. In regard to another review I have never felt that safety was a concern quite the opposite in fact I rest assured knowing that all of the staff feel that these are their children and monitor them accordingly!

    Thomas Page has just qualified to apply to be a California Distinguished School. Choral music an art program cultural assemblies and a very involved PTA make this a very special school.

  • (9 years ago)

    There are a number of good teachers at the school good principal (formerly at Gold Ridge for 10 years) but safety lack of parental involvement and extracurrical activities were reasons for us transferring after 60 days to another school. Suggest you speak with a number of parents with children there before deciding.
