  • Rms is crazy.Teachers break rules like cursing around students.And then there are those teachers who over exaggerate EVERYTHING to make the students seem like the bad guys.Some teachers are afraid of students.I once heard a girl tell a gym teacher she was fat.I was dumbfounded.

  • I first came to this school thinking: Wow! RMS. They must have great teachers, a good curriculum , and nice facility. It's near the end of my 6th grade year, and I'm already waiting to get out of here. Most teacher either don't take control of the class, have petty vendettas against some students, or are very dulled minded or just plain retarded. Seriously, I don't know how some of these people made it out of Kean University. A good friend and classmate of mine actually reported a teacher to Guidance with many other students about being racist, but they never took any action. The teachers do not care or just 'don't know what to tell you' when you are in trouble for something you didn't do or something outrageous. A friend of mine, just like me, is a Pop Warner Little Scholar, and is now in danger of failing, but our math teacher says we need to 'get our act together'. But may I ask: 'What act?' What are we doing wrong? We try to ask that and provide our side and our reasons of the story, but they don't care. They care about whether you're wearing that Jolly Roger wristband or not, not your education. I was in ISS for missing a central detention, and a teacher took my books, and suddenly 'doesn't have them'. So now I've lost my math and SS notebooks, and lost 30 points on my math grade. So if you choose to move here, you may want to find a better school, district, or town overall.
