    Rootstown does a good job educating and engaging the children. My kids seem to be happy and are progressing nicely. The staff seems reactive to problems and communicates well with the parents. The administration is responsive and helpful. Most of the teachers seems to enjoy thier jobs.

    If you grew up in Rootstown you'll think the schools are great... they are not. My one child was bullied... no.. tormented beaten and bruised! I got no help from the school. Only when I called Childrens Services did the school respond. I withdrew my children and they graduated from another school district. They were happy and involved in sports and other activities. They both received very nice scholarships to private colleges and are successful no thanks to Rootstown. Currently there is still a high school teacher who yes swears all of the time in class and at the students. Yes the principal is aware and brushes it off. There's a math teacher that is so focused on religion and his liberal political views there is no time for math. I will give a shout out to 90% of the Elementary teachers they did seem to enjoy their jobs and make the time productive.

    Both of my children have been harrassed by the former principle teachers and now the superintendent..Rootstown school system has fallen through the cracks along the line somewhere..if your children aren't involved in sports or you aren't a member of the PTA then you will be discriminated against.

    The principal Mr. Capitena is a great principal. He is very invested in the students and works to make each students experiences meaningful. He has encourage the schools test averages to rise to an Excellent rating in the state of Ohio.

    This school is not at all good for my children. They will be going somewhere else next year. The teachers have no intrest in the kids at all. My daughter has complained all year about being bullied and the principal and teachers just let it happen. I would never recommend anyone to send their children to this school.

    I agree some teachers are good and other are not but clerical staff should also learn some manners when answering the phone no matter what kind of day their having

    This school is friendly and caring.

    I do not think highly of this school and its administration. The teachers do the best they can. This is not a good learning induced enviroment. Fear and intimadation are main source control used at this school. the best thing this district could do is get a principal.

    This school has some good teachers; however it also has some not so good teachers.

  • (8 years ago)

    This school has great teachers who try their very best. Unfortunately they are hampered by their principal. The PTA is a good group of parents but they are fooled by the principal This school is not working under good leadership.
