Testimonials

What Parents are Saying

We started at ROCS halfway through their first year and were enchanted with the classrooms, the teachers and the learning focus. Our son thrived in such a positive hands on learning environment and has always enjoyed the outdoor free play. He’s now in 2nd grade and his brother has joined the K class. This year has been consistently inconsistent, but the teachers have handled each turn with grace and kindness and we are so thankful for their caring and positivity.  – J. Crissman

It’s hard for me to be brief in talking about what I love about our school. I feel gratitude each day that I can send my child to a school where childhood is viewed as a precious and magical time. Academic lessons are reinforced with art, music and movement, which both deepens my child’s understanding of a topic and adds joy to the process of learning. I think my daughter probably would have been “okay” at any school, but at ROCS she is so much more than just “okay.” She is always excited for school and doesn’t associate it with pressure or anxiety. Her love for learning will serve her well for the rest of her education and life.
S. Leehr

We’ve been at ROCS since the beginning and my daughter has absolutely loved it. All her teachers have been most caring and hard working. I love the small community feel, and we both loved volunteering in the beginning (before I started working full-time). My daughter has made so many friends and loves all that she learns. We love all the specials and we love all outdoor time. My daughter couldn’t be more excited about going back full time and seeing more friends. – M. Simpson
