    The principals and most staff seem nice and care for the students but a few of the teachers are very uncommunicative. I would like to see more communication...teachers doing email newsletters or weekly emails to give a head's up with what is going on in the class. I'd also like to see more parent involvement. My son started in the middle of the school year and I got little info on PTA's or any extra-curricular activities. Maybe next year starting at the beginning of school will bring more information.

    They have a long running record of 'no fights'. My son enjoys going to school for the first time ever.

    The safty and wellbeing for the children have been greatly overlooked. Children are being pushed thru the grades and being overlooked. More specialized teaching needs to be inplace and not be taken back from the kids who really need it. One year it is in place and it works for the child and then it is uprooted and changed to a degree that is not worthy and does nothing for the child and his or her learning needs. No child left behind? So many are being left behind.

    At Ritenour Middle it's evident the principal & staff want the kids to learn & succeed. They strive to ensure that all kids are motivated & succeed. During & after school programs are provided for the success of all kids from those that struggle to those that excel. It is imperative that parents are involved & active with their child in all aspects of their child's life including education to ensure the success of their child. Parents must be responsible & maintain an active relationship with the teachers to stay informed & ensure their child's success. The teachers are great & more than willing to work with parent & child to ensure success. Great programs are provided for those that struggle & for those that excel. The teachers are very motivated & genuinely care about the kids & their success. It's a great school. Kudos to the principal & staff!

    Ritenour middle would have to be one of the best schools of all times. when i was there i had fun and had fun making friends the extra classes rocked and the after school classes were a blast! Beta club was interesting and so was the spanish club the only thing i had a problem with the school was that they didnt have a Pom Pom class anymore otehr then that it rocked!

    Ritenour Middle is one of the worst schools in St Louis County. Look it up for yourself and see what the average test scores are. When my daughter went there her grades took a fast turn for the worst. I recognized the problem with the teaching abilities of a few of the teachers unfortunately these particular teachers were 'Core' teachers. I did recieve a letter from the school board advising me that Ritenour Middle was on a 'bad list' because the poor test scores. They gave me a choice to take my daughter out and enroll her in Ritenour's other middle school Hoech Middle. The only problem was that they were also on this 'bad list'. Best of luch to those of you who live in the Ridenour School District. My advist would be...Private School!
