  • RMS is a great school. My daughter is in her 3rd year there and has had a wonderful experience. The staff is always there for the children and their parents. The teachers make learning fun and they do a great job preparing the students for high school. I would and do recommend RMS to everyone. Thank you for all you do for our kids.

  • RMS ROCKS!! All you parents out there looking for a good school for your kids to go to you have to choose Roscoe Middle School. The teachers, students (thats me), and staff are all awesome. Some of my personal favorite teachers are......... 6th grade.... Miss Zammuto ROCKED, Mrs. Fluegel ROCKED, now for 7th grade..... Mr. Walsh people if you have Mr. Walsh you just got the best teacher ever!!! He's so open minded and wants everyone to succeed, Miss Lee or known as Mrs. McIntyre this year was another one of thos teachers like Mr. Walsh... when the year ends you want them to move up to 8th grade.. 8th grade... I'm in 8th grade so here they go... Mrs. Alms will make you laugh every day no matter what your mood and she also is very very understanding, Ms. DuPre is awesome she always sings in class and it makes everyone laugh.. Mr.Harris is really funny, he is also a very good teacher. THIS SCHOOL ROCKS

  • I disagree with the other post completely.
    Every faculty member in our school is so dedicated to improving our students lives, emotionally and academically it's ridiculous.
    All the teachers and staff members are loving,caring,helpful people. Roscoe Middle School is one of the newest schools in our area, and is in perfect shape. It's built so well that it's impossible to get lost. Everyone in our building cares about RMS and the students love it here.
