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 have had an instance where my daughter got a 100 on her test and the teacher gave her a 10, we were shocked to see it on her report card. Which teacher gives her student a 10 and doesn't bother to think "why did she get such a low score". When we called her about it she told us that we have to show her the proof aka the test paper showing the score!! Thank God my daughter saved all her tests so we could show it to her and she finally earned the 100 she deserved. But what kind of system is it here that a child doesn't get the grade he/she deserves. Just one of many instances I felt the teachers were extremely careless. All the best to people what want to get into the over bidding wars to buy homes in this neighborhood. Its not worth it.

Rice is actually very mediocre except for the fact that is has an amazing low brass section

Rice MS Is comprised of many very intelligent students, who attend private tutoring sessions and other academic classes outside of Rice to compensate for the lack of instruction in public schools. Rice, along with other Plano ISD schools, have nothing more than certified room monitors who pass out worksheets. The school's success is based solely on the caliber of students in attendance. My two children have attended Rice and I purposely chose this school after moving here from out of state, but unless you send your child to a private tutor or other outside academic program, your child will do no better here than any other public school.
