    "I Love! Love! Love this school! Every single adult my child encounters at this school from the Custodians to the Principals provide rich learning experiences. The teachers consistently go above and beyond and parents involvement is always welcome and encouraged, in fact the best PTA I have ever seen. So glad I did not listen my realtor when she tried to steer us toward the more expensive (but smaller) Ablemarle homes with cautionary tales of Greene Schools. (BTW, I have since learned that practice is illegal) Do yourself a favor and before you buy a home and go tour the school, and meet the Principals, Teachers, and PTA President."

    "As a first time parent I could not be more pleased that we chose Greene County to raise our children. I have jumped in with both feet because I feel that ultimately the success of my child is my responsibility. Being in the school at least once a week has allowed me to see how dedicated the staff and faculty are. My daughter is in kindergarden and even though there are 24 kids in her class her teacher as complete control and each child is given adequate and appropriate time with her to learn what is required. I am very pleased with how she has advanced so far this year. I am also extremely impressed with the new principle. You never see him just sitting in his office, unless he is meeting with a parent or has a room full of students reading to them. He is always roaming the halls and interacting with the students. What I have come to find out very quickly is that RES is not just a school that does the minium for its students, it is a school that goes above and beyond what I feel is expected. If class sizes are too big it is our job as parents and community members to fight for proper funding to make our schools the best they can be."

    "I have one child going to RES and the way his teachers challenge traditional old methods and impart creative new learning skills is absolutely amazing. I believe caring staff, motivated students and involving parents are key to a school's success and RES is in the right direction!!"

    "My daughter is in kindergarten at RES. I've spent a great deal of time in her classroom and working with the PTA. Good things: The employees I have come across so far seem dedicated and try hard (with one glaring exception) and the new principal seems like a step in the right direction. The PTA is full of dedicated people working hard to improve the school- they inspire me. Bad: The class size is too big. 25 kids is too many in a K room where many kids don't know their shapes or letters and some can already read. They break up the kids in groups based on ability... I've witnessed it being effective at times, but largely chaotic with a great deal of time wasted. Independent working is certainly important, but with that many kids in the classroom it's impossible to keep kids on task and just too much time messing around. The behavior expectations are low (I can see why). My daughter quickly learned that one needs to be repremanded several times before there are even the mildest consequences. With the large number of kids who have very little preparation entering K, I have concerns that it will be a long time before my daughter's class can get to new stuff for her to learn."

    "I have two children at Ruckersville Elementary. I feel this school does not get the credit it is due. They have been through many principals some good some not so good. One thing is always constant the teachers care and work hard for your children. The current principal in very involved and I feel has the school on a good path. It is untrue that the advanced kids work by themselves. They do separate the kids into groups according to their abilities but each group gets equal time with the teacher. The other children work on their own. This is a skill they also need to learn. Maybe my only true complaint is that the class sizes are big. I feel the teachers handle this well. The school is welcoming to volunteers also the parents and PTA are strong and helpful. Over all this school is pretty good. Like with anything the more you put into something the more you get out. Be involved and support this school and you will be happy there."
