Rogers Elementary is a good school. I have volunteered several times and seen first hand how the children are dealt with. Today's children have many problems at home and they need the sense of stability and role models that the school offers. In this day in time Rogers is doing a fine job and trying to raise and teach the children the values and consequences of life!

Rogers Elementary is not a good fit for many children. The administration does not seem to understand that every child learns differently. I have had experiences with impatient teachers who are reluctant to explain things to children who do not understand. Even the special education teachers fail to understand the meaning of patience. Although the students are just children they should be taken seriously and treated with respect. The discipline at Rogers Elementary is strict and traumatizing. Children learn not to question the authority of their teachers. This destroys their natural inquisitive curiosity- they only learn what the teachers *want* them to learn. I do not recommend this school- if you live in the Waterloo area I suggest one of the nearby private gradeschools.
