    "My daughter is heading into her 2nd yr @ RBCS and thus far I am satisfied with the success in the classroom. There is no lack of communication here. There's a calendar given at the beginning of the school yr and they stick to it. Parent participation has been excellent as well. The HSA added creative fund raisers and made it easier for other parent to be involved in ways they may not have otherwise been able to be. THANK YOU!!"

    "Since attedning Russell Byers my children reading has improved beyond my belief. They love school and always come home telling me something they have learned. Both of my children have had the same 4k teacher who has been there for years and he is an excellent teacher. My child is learning to play the violin, learning Spanish and learning Mandarin. I do not believe my child would have learned or been exposed to so much in another school. I was fearful when my children became school aged because the schools in Philadelphia are not great but I feel blessed that I have found Russell Byers."

    "I can not believe the rating. RBCS is an excellent school. My sons are reading above their grade level. My only complaint is lack of commitment ( going through three principles in four years)."

    "RBCS needs a major "OVERHAUL". This school has not made AYP that I know of in the last 4 years. The school keeps losing teachers and changing administration. The students at this school deserve better. It will be twice as hard for the children at RBCS if the school does not make their teachers and staff accountable for students success especially on the standardized test. A's and B's in the classroom are so so, but what matters in choosing middle and high schools are their PSSA scores. Don't be fooled, make the school accountable. That's saying it lightly!"

    "Iam a single working mother who has 2 children who attend the school. Which make it difficult for me to be involved like I would like to be. I must admit that since Mr. El resigned the school has not been the same. My oldest is graduating this month and has been an active chess Player. Mr. EL made sure that things were done right and in a timely matter. The staff is not as accurate as they once were. I must admit that this has affected my outlook on the school overall. I am now looking for another school for my younger child to attend. I wish the school much luck and hope that it gets back to where it use to be."
