    The Principle does a great job keeping the parents informed and encouraging the parents to participate in the school activities. The children are happy and learn important life lessons every day. Respect Honor Character etc. My daughter often comes home talking about these teachings. It's a great low income school and could really benefit from these monies.

    This school is Great!!! The principal is very easy to talk to she took care of my issues right away. Mrs. Carpenter is a great teacher . We love her class. She's always smiling and is great with the kids. She is great at taking care of any issues we had.

    It s a VERY good school for kids. Especially Ms.J. Isherwood she is BEST teacher at Rock Spring School.

    This school is terrible. My son went to Rocksprings for about a year. During this year we voiced many concerns without the school taking care of the problems. My son was in a special education program. He came home every day with ton's of energy and all of his food. His therapist went to his school to observe him. For the forty five minutes she was there he was strapped to a chair licking the bottom of his shoe. No one stopped him and the therapist signed something saying that she would be a silent observer. We told the teacher prior to that not to restrain him in one of those chairs. He has no physical problems.

    Total disappointment. I strongly advise any parent to move if you have to but stay away from this school. out of the 4 years my student spent there she has had one really good teacher. the rest ranged from apathetic to burned out.the violence and bullying here is outrageous! concerned pro-active parents who advocate for their kids are treated with contempt. I am moving just to save my children from having to attend here. my kindergartner... I HOME-SCHOOL rather than subject him to this place. he would never survive it too kind quiet and loving to make it in the harshness and indifference that is Rock Springs.

    Terrible! Terrible school! I to made the wrong decision about this school. Lots of bullying but nothing done about it. and I AM AN INVOLVED PARENT NOT WELCOME! Not next year not me.

    Horrible school. With Felicita failing we were offered a choice between Rock Springs and Miller. Which both in themselves are close to failure as well. No leadership or concern for children's safety from the principal. Being a mother of a five year old at this school i voiced my concern when I saw the school locks being left open for strangers to enter. I myself saw two gentlemen and an older gentlemen (smoking) enter the school grounds. I proceeded to the principal's office where my concern was not received well. The principal's response was "I am not concerned about it." Needless to say my son nolonger attends this school.

    My son has been going to Rock Springs since he was in First grade he is now a 5th grader. Rock Springs has been a great school. The teachers are always there to listen to any concerns you may have. Ms. Roberts is by far the best teacher!!! Mrs. Morris is great she always returns phone calls and handles any issues or concerns you may have. Overall I would have to say Rock Springs is an excellent school and I would definitely reccomend this school to other parents.

    As a parent and volunteer at Rock Springs I must say overall this school is great. There are a few teachers my children have hadthat I disliked and seems like they don't want to be there but the majority of the teachers here care for the children and do their best to help the children advance. I would like to see more coming together between this school and the community. The beginning of this year has lacked excitment for the students and parents compared to previous years. I have 3 children at this school and would love to see the FUN return. The principle is wonderful and have yet to have a situation not handled when it arises. The staff in the office is not to be desired and can be a little rude but to rate a school on a few that dislike their jobs is not fair.RS is awesome!

    This is a very good school for kids with positive actions and who need to know their positive actions.It also helps kids bring them toghether to make freinds.Even with their on track program.

    I think the leadership at Rock Springs is the best ever and Mrs. Mary Burnett is the best teacher we have ever come across in our travels. I think this school deserves the highest rating possible. It is by far the best elementary school in Escondido. Everyone at Rock Springs takes great pride in academics and leadership. This includes the cafeteria janitors and library personnel. Way to Go Roadrunners. I'm so glad my child will have 4 more years at your fine school.

    I am extremely disappointed in our experience at this school. The teachers are poorly trained to work with the class. Our kids education is at risk staying in this school. The principal is non responsive.

    I believe rock springs is the most poorly run school i have had the displeasure of being associated with. This is my child's 2nd year at this school. There is no academic challange for my child less than 2 months into the year he is extremely bored.It takes him less than an hour to do a week's worth of homework.

    The teachers refuse to take responsibility for the educating all of the children in their class. I don't completely blame the school...The 'no chid left behind' law is also to blame. Recommend private school in southern california!

  • (9 years ago)

    Academic programs seem especially in the lower grades to focus on the less-prepared more disadvantaged students who obviously need more help. However I think this holds back the motivated well-prepared students. This school has an excellent music program for fourth and fifth graders who would like to learn to play an instrument and the district even provides loaner instruments. Recently a school wide martial arts program was introduced. The library is wonderful! There are other activities such as carnivals and food drives. I think the parent involvement is good; however it is probable that many parents who would want to help do not do so because of language barriers.

    This will be my childrens last year at Rock Springs because of the new boundry...we've enjoyed the school and will miss it. There are so many teachers that go out of their way to do extra activities clubs programs and spend time with the kids.

    Tight nit teachers in 4th and 5th. Teachers are professional and on top of their game.
