    "I have been very disappointed with the teachers and overall climate of this school. There are a few good teachers, who I feel genuinely care about kids personally and academically, but for the most part, my experiences lead me to believe that teachers at Rincon Valley Middle only care about making their jobs easier. Few teachers are available to give kids extra help outside of school hours. Several of my kids' teachers have told their classes that kids need to get used to F's. Why tell kids this? When kids have asked how to raise their grades, most teachers say, "Do all the work," but won't accept late work or let kids retake tests. When half of a grade is based on test scores, it sets kids up for failure when you don't give them ways to retake a test or show they've learned the material later. I understand that this creates more work for the teacher, but this is what a dedicated teacher does. A number of teachers continue to send home homework assignments that are based on nothing kids have done in class, so my kids have had to do all the learning on their own. I won't send my younger student to Rincon."

    "Very disappointed in the impersonal nature of this school. Some teachers are good, but some are very strange. The school felt large and very institutional with "control" more important than learning."

    "Let me start by saying this was my jounior high when i was growing up and now 24yrs later I have chose it for my son to attend. I was very nerous when it came time to pick a middle school. I did my research and went to open house at a few different schools. There is such a strong parent/family involvment here and the Principle Mr. Marshall is so involved in the school and students. I look forward to his weekly emails letting everyone know what went on that week and any activites are going on. They make is very easy for the parents/students to connect, my son is able to go online and check his classroom status whenever he wants. I could go on and on about this school but I will finsh by saying my son has never been more excited to go to school than he has this year in middle school. I highly recommend any parent looking for a middle school in Santa Rosa to check out Rincon Valley Middle, they won't be disappointed. Yours truly, Brandi L."

    "Teachers are great,students are great, but the ladies who work in the office are honestly the rudest people I have come across. I honestly would not recommend going to tbs school just because of them it can really ruin your overall experience. They need to learn how to respect people and not focus to hard on the overal mold of the school."

    "My daughter has adjusted really well to middle school and I credit that to the teachers, volunteers, and staff. Teachers have been helpful and I found the office staff to be friendly and inviting."
