Im wondering if anyone else out there is having problems with Royal Springs Middle School? For the first time, Im starting to wonder...instead of "No Child Left Behind"...I get the feeling they are more like "if you don't keep up, you are out!" You would think as a parent the administration would be helpful but each time I talk to someone out there I get this hard nose attitude and Im begining to wonder it starts at the top. Believe it or not...Royal Springs is NOT always right! But this seems to be the attitude I get right from the start.

I love RSMS!!!! My kids have never had any problems with the school or teachers. They are both straight A students and enjoy going to school. Anytime I have needed to talk to a teacher or the principal, they were always there ready to answer my questions. Although, if you are a sports parent, I would suggest another school because RSMS does not put a lot of focus on their sport programs.

And that is the problem with the whole district. "Sports parents" you mean a parent who values their child's sports participation over their education? Those are the people who have totally screwed up our school district. The Board of Education should be focused on education. Your kids are not likely to make it to the pros. Help them get a good education if you want them to succeed in life. And yes I played school sports from seventh grade through high school. The focus has just got out of hand. Just look at the High School boy's basketball program for examples.

My son is a 6th grader @ RSMS and I am absolutely loving the middle school. As my son has behavior issues, the Dean of students & his teachers have been really helpful and willing to help my child stay on track to keeping his honor roll grades. They have a program there called "PASS" which is a wonderful program for students. If he is having issues or needs a little more help then they pull him out one on one and do what is needed for him.

Me too. My child has been there for 2 years and it has been fabulous for her. SHe has actually taken some classes that are slightly challenging for me, and I have my MBA. They help the kids get their minds organized and ready to learn. Those who think "they make the kids line up and walk to class with a chaperone" are really uninformed and wanting justification for their own educational decisions.

I am actually glad RSMS is as organized as they are. I know my sons teachers make sure they get to each class as they should instead of letting them roam the halls as they please.As a matter of fact I was there yesterday and while I was there they allowed me to walk up stairs to my sons locker and I made him clean it out.. I have NOOOOOOO clue how he found anything in there lol. But the teachers and staff I came in contact with were extremely friendly. I am glad to see I have a parent that agrees with me on loving RSMS!!

I have 2 children, 6th graders are Royal Springs this year. I love it. My daughter has ADHD/Obsessive Compulisive disorder. They have been a tremendous help. Totally organized!! My son has no issues, normal preteen boy. I email teachers frequently to keep in touch with what is going on with both children. My son is on the BBall team there. I am glad they focus on the education, discipline, organization ect. I agree with the peeps above.... school is about a education sports is a plus. I have nothing against sports. Being a mother of 4 I have children in everything but our most important is education!!! I hear parents complain or move kids to Scott Middle because they "aren't as strict" REALLY..I want strict and grounded. These are teens with raging hormones and smart mouths... keep control as long as you can! I know they will do what they want behind my back, I was there once too but I also know holding them accountable is what they need!! I am all for Royal Springs Middle.

Man you are an idiot! Kentucky public school rank at the bottom in our nation and it's not because of any sports programs, it's because some parents consider the school system as a extension to daycare, and don't spend the time to educate there own children!

Personally I think the school is too strict. They pull us out of our 7th hour to make us do line retraining. We literally spend 20 minutes walking the halls in silence. There is also a teacher there, mr wiseman, he is the WORST teacher you can possibly imagine. He never teaches anything and is constantly giving us book work, he doesn't stand up and lecture, he hands us a book and tells us to start reading. I got a ouch detention which is a silent lunch for asking him a question without raising my hand. On top of all this, we have had 3 6th graders selling wee in the halls, and 7 8th graders caught with weed. RSMS is beginning to be as bad as GMS with drugs

I m afomer RSMS student. I was part of the first class of RSMS in 2006. I've watched it grow and seen both the changes and continuities of the school. The staff is not as loving a they seem. Some people jokingly call it the acadamy... but in all hoesty, that is what it seems like. In order from largest focus to least focus it'd be 1. silence and straight lines, 2. education, 3. sports/extra curricular activities. Too much focus on rules. And not enough on sports. I Played basketball there the first two years of my middle school career. The coaches were motivation to keep my grades up and stay out of trouble, and the sport itself was a great way to relieve unwanted stress caused by my overachieving, push too hard, act like a dictator teachers. Education should e the main focus. Rules are very important, yes. But not so important as to overcome the time for education. And sports AND other extra curricular activities should be just as important. The only Extra Curr. Act. that's even remotely important to RSMS is The Acedemic Team, and quite frankly, I don't believe there's many middle school children who can blow some steam and release some pressure by going to a "match" involving the same stuff they spend 7-8 hours a day hearing about. I think I've made some valid points.
