    The teachers are great all except the PE teacher Michelle Rabe she is the worst teacher I have ever encountered. She screams at the children she's threatened as well as called the kids names she's a bully. The principle is great as well as the office staff. It's a shame they have such a terrible PE teacher if I wasn't for her I would give the teacher quality five stars.

    Rocklin Elementary is Awesome!! The teachers work hard to have all of the students on the same level.

    My son has been going to Rocklin Elem. for 3 years. Everything is top notch. The teachers are amazing. The kids in the GATE program can excel. My son says the PE teacher doesn't yell and is nice. I travel to get to this school and it is worth it! My son's teacher said that 5 of 2012's valedictorians from Rocklin were in her class when they were in 4th grade. That is why there is such a long waiting list to get into the GATE program here. The best time to get your kid in is 2nd grade after the 1st grade GATE test. Yes the parking is bad. The school has to share a campus with Rocklin Academy. I just come early and have no problems.

    The parking lot pick up and drop off is so poorly managed I have little doubt the school itself is run worth a darn. I can't wait to transfer my student out of this school. It's a shame if your child makes it into the GATE program that you have to send them to this campus for full time GATE classes.

    We are jumping ship. This school is sinking. Too many of RES's teachers are ready for retirement and done teaching. Mrs. Smith and Mrs. Powers are shining stars! Our years with these teachers were rich with learning personal growth and academic improvement. There is little parent support or involvement the PTC is impotent and self serving. I'm sad for this little school because other Rocklin schools don't suffer from these problems. I hope things change under the new leadership.

    This school is definitely worthy of 4 stars however the PE teacher alone has brought my rating to a 1 (the lowest I could give). Every time I am on campus I hear her screaming and belittling some poor child. I understand that children need structure and verbal discipline but she takes this to a whole other level! I am not sure why she hasn t been fired yet. Her disrespect to those children disgusts me and something needs to be done. I would not recommend sending your child here unless they don't participate in PE EVER!

    Rocklin Elementary has great teachers who really care offers enriching after-school clubs and has an enthusiastic and caring principal.

    Wow! This school has an excellent balance of academics extre-curricular and parent involvement. My son started 3rd grade here and it was like he was lit on fire with enthusiasm for school. It is an older campus (1950/s) but the energy that the students feel on campus is reflected in excellent test scores and social interaction. Great school!

    We'd been searching for the 'right' school for my daughter since the age of 2. She was enrolled in a couple of private schools & I even homeschooled her for a time. I was overjoyed & relieved to find Rocklin Elementary & their self-contained GATE classrooms! I don't worry that my girl isn't getting what she needs or that she is bored...the teachers are phenomenal! We will all be sorry to have to leave when jr. high comes around...I guess that is my only complaint - They don't go to 8th grade!

    Fantastic school older buildings but the programs are wonderful. The first graders learn computers the second graders start in a science lab and they have well rounded programs and caring teachers. My daughter is in second grade and is reading at the sixth grade level thanks to the teachers and programs. This school also begins teaching the importance of math at an early age the students begin learning fractions in the first grade. I couldn't wish for a better school for my kids.

    Great after school programs and involvement opportunities

    Parent involvement is great and highly incouraged. Love the principal because he is so great with the spirit of school and knowing the kids by name. My son is going into 1st grade now but I know in Kindergarten the teachers were wonderful.

    Quality teaching with many opportunities to participate in extracurricular activities. Afterschool clubs include drama gardening homework and more.

    Rocklin Elementary is a very diverse school with lots of opportunities for the children to particapate in extracurricular activites. This is a good school with teachers who really care. The school does have a handfull of terrific parents that volunteer often.

    I have nothing but good things to say about Rocklin elementarys school campus teachers and curriculum. I have other things about the office staff. I think they really need to work on their people skills. I absolutely have no respect of the fact that I will go check out my child or have specific questions related to my child and stand for a matter of minutes and be ignored while stupid girls order their lunch or talk trash about other parents in front of me --another parent--hello and Trimble has to ask me if I have been helped. Pretty Pathetic!

    I can't say enough good things about the school principle and staff. Our daughter will begin her 4th year in the GATE program which has given her tools for life. She is a better student for having been in this program. Not only is she challenged educationally but the organizational skills she now has will benefit her far beyond her school days. Our son who is not in the program has also had the best teachers who truly go beyond what I would expect in a classroom. I feel that parents must take the time out to get involved whether it be a day in class or a visit at lunch. You won't know the great dynamics just by looking at homework. The bigger picture of education is about the entire campus and those running it.

    Unfortunately reliance on Accellerated Math (AM) a computer driven program to 'teach' math is a problem in many of Rocklin's elementary schools not unique to the Gate Program. The School Board keeps changing the math curriculum and as a result teachers are increasingly relying on AM which is supposed to be a supplemental program to provide core curriculum. AM is a fine supplemental program but is no substitute for instruction.

    One of my children attended Rocklin Elem. for 1 school year so he could participate in the GATE magnet program. While the principal is enthusiastic about his program and likes to talk about the exciting opportunities for GATE students in reality the program is substandard offering no advancement whatsoever in the second and third grade. My son had no geography spelling history science formal math instruction or the promised instruction in a second language. The teacher relied on the Accelerated Math to teach math theories. She did not present any math lessons to the children. Consequently my son and several other children are now behind in math and have several definitive holes in their education.
