Are there are any problems with exclusionary behavior, cliques, or bullying at this school? Please describe any problems your children may have experienced in this area.

Yes, but the school is aware of it and they are finding solutions. I think it is about the same as every school. The administration and counselors are implementing positive strategies to eliminate bullying. - Nov 9, 2017
Our child had a difficult first year making friends as most students had been there for the majority of their school career. I know of families that have left RAS early because of school issues, leaving behind the working spouse. - Nov 2, 2017
My kids haven't experienced it, but others may have. - Oct 18, 2016
Yes. We have had a terrible time with this, and it was finally addressed this spring when the kids in question did something that the administration couldn't let slide. However, we've been complaining about it for years. Apparently we needed to give a full who, what, when, where, how, and why report every time. For one of my children, this has been a significantly damaging experience and severely affected behavior and self-confidence. - May 19, 2016
