Open Quote RMSEL is an incredible school that pioneered Expeditionary Learning. Kids learn actual life skills in addition to academic necessities. Leadership and teachers are first rate and the community is warm and inviting. Our kids have excelled at the school and we have loved being a part of the community for 10+ years. Real life is hard and RMSEL prepares kids for it with passion and creativity. Parents who are involved and understand that challenging your kids is great for building their character will find the experience better than any other possible school. 11/10 I would recommend RMSEL to families who want to work hard to make a positive impact on the world.

RMSEL teachers are incredible. They challenge students to reach their potential and continue to support their learning long beyond the time they had them in their class. With students at the school for over 10 years we have seen teachers come and go and new teachers continue to impress us.

Leaders need to lead and the quality of leadership at RMSEL has continued to increase in the last decade. Our experience in the last decade has been that kids are number one and Chad has done an excellent job of prioritizing them over anything else. My kids love the leaders in the school and they continue to create an environment that challenges students and prepares them for the real world.

With multiple students in need of special help we have been extremely happy with the accommodations of teachers and staff in helping our kids succeed.

RMSEL deals very well with bullying in our experience. Our concerns have been addressed promptly and in a way that promotes growth in our students. Unfortunately there are several parents who do not believe their student could be a bully and do very little to address their issues.

As a parent who runs a business I believe it's important to balance achievement and work ethic. The homework my kids have received has never been cumbersome and has encouraged practice over busy-ness.

I HIGHLY recommend RMSEL for students who want to prepare themselves for real life. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
