For all the hype created in plano over this school, I don't think its all that great. The best part is the music program under Mrs. Farmer. The teachers are ok. I am not impressed with them at all.

I'm coming to this school for 7th grade? Is it really that good? I am moving from New York, and I'm considered the smartest student at my current school. Will I be able to manage here? Everyone says that it's tough and competitive.

The person under was incredibly incorrect in my opinion because the students here at Rice are awesome and friendly. They welcome new students quite well unless the student is not a very nice person. This may not be the case for all students here, but this is the majority. All the teachers are great, ...  Read more
