I have a child who is a challenge (I feel he is a little high strung and has some behavior issues) and a child who is advanced. RFES has been wonderful with helping me at both ends of the spectrum. I was considering private school for my children but after meeting with the principal and discovering all that the school has to offer I felt my money would have been wasted on a private institution. I was correct. My advanced child is challenged in new and exciting ways every day. She was identified early as an advanced student and was placed in a special group with her peers so that they would not grow bored or lose the potential with which they entered the school.
My challenging child is maturing on par with the other students and RFES faculty have even identified academic strengths I overlooked and are working to help him hone those skills.
The principal, faculty and staff have simply been a delight to work with on all levels with both children (especially given the children have quite opposite needs and personalities). They offer support and assistance, but most importantly, they listen when a parent has a concern or need. And that's the most important thing in my book.
