    This school is awful. Many teachers don't know anything about the subject the principals don't get anything done and worst overall the gym teacher is a creep. Academics are horrible the superintendent tried to drop history because it wasn't on the MCAS you don't get a full language. Kids don't have music anymore because they replaced it with another math class. Some teachers can't control their classes and are only in it for the vacation time. There are some good teachers but they are rare to find in this disaster of a school. STAY CLEAR OF RMS! AS A FORMER STUDENT THEY DIDN'T READY ME FOR HIGH SCHOOL AS WELL AS THEY SHOULD! GIVE YOUR CHILD A GOOD CHANCE NOT RMS!!!!

    I am an eighth grader at RMS and i love it! I cannot believe what other reviews say. It is a beautiful building there are so many after-school programs and despite other reviews we DO learn overviews of French Spanish and Portuguese. Our teacher won best principal in Massachusetts and I am in a program where eighth graders can learn freshman algebra. We also have a second math class (math plus) for all seventh and eighth graders to help improve our math skills. I can say nothing but good things. We have also recently received new weight room equipment such as treadmills and stationary bikes as well as our own school track. Most of the gym classes ARE separated by gender and we do fun activities like step aerobics soccer and golf. I can go on and on. I LOVE THIS SCHOOL!

    hi i am an eight grader at this school. i can tell you that this is the worst year of school yet. here we have classes with a minimum of 35 students. plus we now go on a trimester scale. for one third of the year we have either art world cultures or music along with either health or gym. you have that one 'special' for one third and thats it. this school got rid of its languages most field trips and special events. we also have a horrible super intendent. i dont think that she knows what she is doing. she tried to cancel social studies completely because its not on mcas. she was actually fired from the position of super intendant at rhode island schools. i have loads more to tell but i have to go. if you can dont send your child here

    I agree. no matter what classes students are in. seems like all subjects are just skimmed through in class and it is up to the student to learn on their own.Testing after2eks isn't enoght

    I cannot believe you do not do a full review w/ conclusion classes this year was the hardest for my child who is an B student Teachers need to be more patient

  • (7 years ago)

    Overall I am not pleased with the middle school for the following reasons Co-ed gym classes are inappropriate at this age decline in MCAS scores overall in comparison to scores of children in the elementary school (I do not think that this is a reflection on the children rather on what is being taught) omission of previously offered classes such as ROCKS and EASY and the overall climate of the school not welcoming to parent volunteerism (as a parent there is a very cold climate whereas elementary school was very welcoming. My taxes have continued to rise dramatically in the past 8 years and I lack to see any improvement/enhancement in what is being delivered to the children. It is disappointing.

    Nice modern school facilities are above average. Teachers and staff are not sufficient to teach all classes with any degree of average to below average academic quality.
