    My two oldest daughters loved this school & the principal. We only had an issue with 1 teacher.

    I'm a student at "Rhoades Elementary" entering my 6th year I'm in the horizons program. Ever since i was in kindergarten I have excelled above my classmates so I often got bored in class however in 3rd grade I entered the horizons program which is a gifted program. There I have made great friends and met 2 great teachers. Ever since I was little I have had speech issues. When I entered "Rhoades" they put me in speech therapy where I have gotten much better. Now almost a 6th grader I have learned much and have had a great experience here at "Rhoades Elementary".

    AVOID THIS SCHOOL!!! We chose this school to send our daughter for kindergarden because it's right around the corner and it seemed like a good one it's a township school after all. We were SO wrong. At the beginning of the school year her teacher announced that she was pregnant there were also several other teachers pregnant as well and gave regular updates about her pregnancy. Inappropriate! These kids are 5 and 6. She knew more about her teacher's pregnancy than how to do her homework. There was also a 'student teacher' that did quite a bit of the 'teaching'. I told the teacher several times that I didn't want my kid out in bad weather or when it's to chilly. Her response was 'well there is no one to watch her'. Nice! During winter break the teacher had her baby and decided that she wasn't going to return. Also that the student teacher was done as well. She was replaced by 1 teacher fresh out of college younger than me and I'm 26! For the first 6 weeks my kid just drank chocolate milk for breakfast and lunch she was never told to eat the food. I was so upset and the school's response oh well we can't watch all the kids. She is now in a private school.
