    I love this school. My son is in 3rd grade and they have helped him to succeed in so many ways. So happy to be in this school district

    RTE cares about each child and works very hard to ensure that they can succeed. Children are also recognized for talents and social skills outside of academics which is important to the student's development.

    Highly recommend! My son attended grades 1-3 here. Top notch curriculum and teachers who truly care about the student's progress. Beautiful school. Fantastic playground. Safe atmosphere. Wonderful educational experience including music art science. Educational field trips as well. I wish we did not move out of the area. If you have young children and are looking for a place to live in the Philadelphia area highly recommend Upper Providence/Media area because of the school district. You will not be sorry.
