We can earn a possible grade of 100 points. No, our school doesn’t take a test---but we can earn part of our points from stakeholder feedback, so we need YOU to respond to the survey link below to help show the world that RMS is an excellent school!

4K Pre-Registration for 2019-2020 is January 16-March 12, 2019—Please post these dates on school marquees. Parents may pre-register at any district elementary school or child development center.

Screened children will be ranked district-wide and those most at-risk for school success will receive initial assignments.
