My oldest is just in kindergarten so I have nothing to compare RA to but I have been so, so impressed. The teachers are attentive, the front office ladies are very helpful and so kind, and the curriculum has worked very well for my daughter. We've had a few incidents of kids on the bus not being super nice, and after letting my daughter's teacher know she has followed up with me several times to make sure my daughter isn't being bullied. Principal Vargo is attentive, kind, and makes it a point to learn all the kids names. He's a wonderful part of an already great system; we're lucky to have him!
