As an RES parent for the last 9 years, I have seen this school blossom and grow into a place families don't want to leave. In the last 2 years, we have implemented a house system and it has changed the environment of our school. There are 6 houses and children are placed their 1st year and will remain there until they move on to Middle School. Each house has kids K-5. That means relationships are forming for years. Big kids mentor little ones and little ones love being with the big ones. School spirit is high and no doubt our House System and our admin play a huge role. Activities offered before and after school are plentiful. There are a variety of sports, art, drama, leadership and music available. Students get more recess and PE than ever. I am grateful.

This elementary school is awful. Students are only given fifteen minutes of recess time a day. Our child's teacher had no control over her classroom and discipline is non-existent. If your child is an average or better learner you should prepare for very little learning to happen over the course of the year as the learning level in the classroom will be based off of the slowest and least academically capable student. When people tell you Madison city schools are good please keep in mind that "good in Alabama" is really bad anywhere else. Also, the only extracurricular club available is chess club. The chess coach requires several hours of "chess homework" each night. We transferred our child out after one year and now pay for private school. Awful, just awful!
