Great school great teachers! After first year (sixth grade) and a great long summer my son is very excited to get back to school. He has already logged on to school website to check his new schedule teachers and class team! Found out that he has made advanced math. Never thought my son would be so happy to get back to school.

My son is finishing his 6th grade year at RHMS and we are pleased with the level of instruction he is receiving and with the professionalism of his teachers and the staff. RHMS offers lots of electives and enrichment courses for kids with different interests and preferences. My son is not a sports-oriented kid and he has been able to find clubs and organizations that keep him happy and engaged. Of course there are things I would change if I could (start time lunch time more outdoor play time smaller classes) but for a free public education RHMS is a good choice.
I am in 7th grade here i have no complaints definitely good teachers and good staff many different choices for electives and after school programs i would recommend this school.
My 6th grade daughter hated this school for good reasons (several bad teachers too many students lack of lockers little to no differentiated instruction having lunch at 10 30 am mean girls stupid rules etc.). Luckily she only had to attend for a couple of months before she changed to a wonderful private school. If private school is not an option for you register now for any and all charter schools in the area to avoid sending your child here!
My two daughters have been in this school for the past 2 years and we really apprecite the teaching staff of this school
Our son has had a great experience. The teachers and counselors have been very supportive.
After reading several reviews I was pretty stunned. Our child attended 6th grade in the 2nd year RHMS opened its doors to 6th graders. It appears as though the same problems exist. Counselors are an issue--Very Placating. Staff seems unable or unwilling to find easy resolutions to quick fix problems. Some good teachers leave this school. I don't know why. But they teach elsewhere. As was mentioned by someone else I too am concerned about PE teachers/coaches here. We found programs outside of this school to be much more professional with kids.
I love this school! I am in the 7th grade and it is SO much fun! All the teachers here are awesome and know what they're talking about. The principal is very nice and the academics programs are good too. I can't wait to be in 8th grade here! Go nighthawks!
My 7th grade year wasn't too bad (at the time the school didn't have 6th grade) but my 8th grade year was terrible and led me to the decision to attend a private high school. Overall the kids were immature and not focused. The teachers are okay and the good ones don't stay. I was not challenged in academics.
My daughter went to 6th 7th and 8th grade here. It was an excellent school. The teachers were great. The choices of electives were amazing for a middle school. The counselors were great. We loved everything about this school
This is an outstanding place of learning. My son has started enjoying school again and has teachers that are more than willing to go the extra mile to help him continue to grow. (My daughter also loves Rock Canyon high school next door). I have had nothing but positive experiences with either school.
I would not recomend this school. Im not happy with it no one really is. Learning a language is impossible the consellors don't help much and I've been having a hard time in math and its not going well.
I would not recommend this school. The counselors were not very helpful and the education was lacking.
I went to RHMS for 7th and 8th grade. My teachers were pretty good but my experience with the counselors was ungodly. They have no idea what they are doing and I was extremely disappointed with them. The administration is horrible too but as long as you're not a troublemaker you won't have to deal with them. A very average school.
Teachers are great in everything but math. Kids are sweet not a lot of discipline problems. Great programs but for only a few. Foreign languages are impossible to get. Counselors are more like gate keepers for saying 'no that can't be done.' Placement for math is questionable. Our one experience with one coach was not great. The coach was not knowledgeable of that particular sport and had no interest in coaching and took no interest in the kids or the game. She was like a zombie on the bench.
