    I open enrolled my daughters in Rice Lake last year and I must say I am truly pleased with my decision! The school has great teachers and support staff good communication and a wonderful PTO. The principal Mr. French is always outside to greet students and parents at drop off and pick up. My children have learned a great deal and greatly strengthen themselves in math and reading. I would strongly recommend this school for anyone who is looking to provide their children with an excellent learning environment .

    Rice Lake is an amazing school with great teachers kids and volunteers. The teachers that I have had the privilege of working with are great communicators listen to concerns and take measures to help each individual student reach their potential! Our Principal is always finding ways to improve the school getting news to the families and building a stronger community. The entire staff works hard and goes above and beyond to make Rice Lake a great place for our kids. The PTO works year round to help bring in new technology student activities and many other items/services that students and staff need. I am so blessed to be a part of this school!

    Rice Lake has been an amazing experience for my child (currently in third grade) and my second child will enter kindergarten in the fall. The teachers are not only caring and considerate but they tirelessly and creatively challenge each and every student on his/her own level. We have had only positive experiences so far at Rice Lake. The principal Mr. French is approachable and willing to share information with parents. There is a very active and involved PTO. My child has made many friendships and we love our neighborhood school!
