    "I'm sending my son to Rydal Elementary next year... entering 1st grade. As to all public schools...the only thing that i'm concerned about is the highly test oriented way of instructions.... I'm hoping that this will change...b/c education shoudn't be "ALL about test scores""

    "We've had a very positive experience at Rydal. The teachers genuinely care about the students, communicate well with parents, and respond appropriately to questions and concerns. Academics are strong, so much so that my previously high-achieving kids needed some time to get caught up after transferring from another district. The facilities are bright and well maintained, and our family enjoyed extracurriculars including string orchestra, Odyssey of the Mind, drama club, chorus, and Reading Olympics. If I have one complaint, it's the highly test-oriented nature of instruction, but unfortunately, I think you'll find that in most if not all public schools today. No school can be perfect for every type of learner, but my kids have very different skill sets and personalities, and all of them are thriving here."

    "I really loved Rydal... until this year. I have one child who is gifted and I felt there was very little support for him, particularly from his classroom teacher. The gifted program is a "pull out" program so the children miss the regular classes while they are in the gifted classes. My child's teacher did a horrible job helping my child transition back into the class, so class work was missed and grades slipped, particularly in the beginning. Our experience has made us question whether Rydal is the right school for him (or if this was just a bad year). My other child has excelled however, and I will send my youngest there when its time."
