    "Rockledge used to be a good school. A couple of years ago I could have given it a 4. There were some changes that were made without putting kids first. The principal comes off as really nice but doesn't address parents concerns. I'm really disappointed in the direction this school is going."

    "The 2013-2014 has been rough on my child. The principle is horrible, there are no other words to describe her. She comes off as very nice and caring but when an issue needs to be addressed she completely changes her tone. She talks down to parents and is not receptive at all. I am not the only parent that has had the same issue with her. Some of the teachers are ok but others not so much, My child's 3rd teacher leaves a lot to be desired. My child is extremely bright but the way they have set up his classroom with both 3rd and 2nd graders is not working. A lot of children are struggling, not just mine! I have so many complaints about this school. I would not recommend it to any parent at all. IF you are considering enrolling your child into this school, I would suggest to explore other options. My child will NOT attend this school after this year, even if I have to homeschool."

    "I think that the Principal, Ms. Seidel has done an awesome job with the school. She is very involved and holds both students and teacher accountable. As a parent I can say that my child has shown great improvement while attending Rockledge. The teachers are also great at this school. Since Ms. Seidel took the reins test scores have also improved at the school. Parent involvement is also high at this school and I think that is one key piece of the puzzle."

    "The 2011-2012 school year at Rockledge Elementary was challenging. The new Principal is a better fit for High School. The new Principal does not have a great connections with parents and make decisions without considering the impact on the school community. The tone "loud" of the Principal is also not conducive to an elementary school environment. The multiple changes in staff over the last year has been terrible. Rockledge was previously a great school with a warm environment and deserving of 4 stars despite being overly crowded. I am not sure the school can get back to the strong sense of children first, team and strong community with the new Principal."

    "2011-2012 has been a rough year for Rockledge. Unfortunately I have to give a rating of only two stars, where last year it would have been a 4 or a 5. Many changes happened during the 2011-2012 school year including a new Principal, Vice Principal as well as some other key employees. The Vice Principal has changed a couple of times in this year alone. The transition has been rough, and many parents are very unhappy. The school is also overly crowded and uses temporary classrooms (trailers). There is talk of redistricting so that may be solved as some students are moved to Yorktown. The Principal is very nice, however after several complaints to her nothing has been done to fix the situation. There is one teacher in particular many parents have complained about and nothing has been done as of January, half way through the year. Let's hope Rockledge can turn it around, but as of now I couldn't recommend it."
