    Rogers is a great school academically with a diverse student body and dedicated teachers. We are happy to have the opportunity for our children to study there. That being said if you are looking for a school that fosters a sense of community and a parent-involved approach to learning this is not it. Direct schoolwide communication from the principal and vice-principal to the parent community are non-existent and the school can feel nebulous simply a structure where our children to each day. This is very different from our last school where there was clearly a sense of community and a place for families at the table and strong encouraging communications from and with school leadership. Still a great school but....

    I have two children at Rogers it is excellent. They group the children into small "power teams" for reading and math and do a great job helping the disadvantaged kids (non-English at for for example) while still challenging the more advanced students. They really care for all the students and do a great job considering the diverse population.

    As an educator I love what this school does for great achievement and a varied student base.

    The quality of the education at the International School at Rogers Magnet is outstanding...I would not send my child anywhere else! The International Baccalaureate program is a philosophy that ties everything together and makes learning meaningful and challenging for all students!

  • (6 years ago)

    The high academic quality of Rogers is maintained because students are put in small groups according to their reading and math abilities. Children are often in small groups where real learning occurs. Love the IB emphasis and teachers. A happy place.

    We moved from a non-English speaking country early this year and it's my son's first time to enter a school so I'm so afraid that he won't be able to catch up. I was so surprised how quickly he was able to learn the language and how quick he was able to blend with the other kids. My son is now reading writing and doing very good in class. Thanks to the dedicated staff and principal of Rogers!

    The International Baccalaureate program at Rogers prepares students for the real world by actively engaging tm in their inquiry. The various classes are connected by the subject being studied even through the specials such as gym and art. Excellent dedicated staff and principal.

    I have children who have already graduated from Rogers and moved on to middle school. I have found that they have been extraordinarily well prepared academically and socially. The parent community at Rogers is cohesive diverse and actively involved in the school.

    School officials do not address concerns or handle them quite poorly. Very disappointed with the way things are run in the past year.
