  • Reviewed by Former Student on August 24, 2007
  • Rating: 3 (3 / 5) Flag as inappropriate
  • I attended Rocky Run Elementary School during my third to fifth grade years. When I first moved there during the third grade, I immediately knew that my previous learnings were way above the criteria being taught at Rocky Run; especially in mathematics. I had already learned all of my multiplication and was about to move on to division, but I came to find that the third grade students at Rocky Run were still on addition and subtraction. I look back now and KNOW that they should have recognized the potential in me and place me in focus or even a grade higher. As far as mathematics go, there is still room to improve. Even though the math curriculum was changed about two years ago to a program called Everyday Math, it did nothing but confuse the students and parents as well. I know this first hand because my little sister, now in the fourth grade, was in the third grade during the change and my parents and I had very hard times trying to get her to properly understand the lessons being taught. The math is in desperate need of attention and work so therefore I give Rocky Run a Elementary a mere C-.
