Rockledge Elementary School Ratings & Reviews

We very much appreciate how involved the principal is- when we had some concerns he made time to meet with us the same week.

I have had my two children at Rockledge for a little over 3 years. We have had some great experiences and our kids love to go to school every day. Each time I visit Rockledge I can see improvement. I believe this is because of the new principal (Mr. Prince) and his staff’s willingness to adapt to his new leadership style. I have no doubt that we will see improvement in the test scores this year. Also, each time I meet with a teacher I leave feeling that my kids are getting a great education. They are very understanding/accommodating to each individual student’s situation. I have personally witnessed teachers making time for students who are having difficulty. I have seen them bring in extra helps so no child is left behind while challenging those student who are not experiencing the same type of difficulty. I have seen them sharing the concerns and providing solutions for bilingual families. Diversity is a strong element to Rockledge and the staff continue to make it a strength. The community should continue to rally around Rockledge and I would love to see more parent involvement. My husband and I both work full time but we try out best to carve out a little time here and there to do our part.I recommend Rockledge!!!

“Pros” and “cons” about Rockledge:First, the “pros.” Rockledge used to be a great school, so it’s nice to know that it’s attainable. Diversity has always been a strength and attribute; and there have always been good parents around who would step forward and get engaged, not necessarily through the institutional PTA, but as drop-in volunteers or irregular visitors. The great, dedicated teachers are the bedrock of the school but they are undermined from above.Rockledge has iron-fisted management, but no leadership. The management puts on a pleasant face and seems eager to please and agreeable, but goes to absurd lengths to prevent parents from getting too involved in the school. They’re happy to take your monetary contributions, but they really prefer that parents stay out during school hours unless specifically called upon, and not question school operations. It used to be the other way around… Many parents who have invested much time and money in the school have thrown up their hands and put their kids in private schools. Those who can’t afford such luxury are stuck with a disdainful school system, an apathetic school board, and an ambitious front office where ambition and PGCPS insider politics guides every decision. To PG County, it seems that Rockledge is firstly a jobs program, then secondly a county institution that happens to warehouse and educate children. A throng of non-teaching staff has ebbed and flowed through Rockledge in recent years, some with contrived, meaningless job titles. Several times the past few years, the school has hired teachers who quickly exited for extended leave, only to be replaced for months by unqualified—and sometimes unwilling, non-teaching staff or a parade of uninterested substitutes. If missing a day of school matters, then how about missing 3 months of 4th grade math because the school won’t bring in a real teacher? If PGCPS is too financially strapped to do that, then why do they will hire a horde of aides and assistants to do odd jobs around the school? Teaching the kids should become first priority again.

Sadly, this school is an embarassment to the Bowie community. It starts with the incredibly poor leadership! The principal has no respect for her teachers or parents and does not even appear to like children. So many good teachers have left over the years and the school ratings continue to decline. It's run like a prison and the fights on the playground are a regular thing. Teachers yell because they are so frustrated, children are mean because they are in a bad environment - it's a vicious cycle. Stay away from this school.

Teachers fine. Principal and assistant, terrible. Ive had numerous problems. Other moms too. I hope there is a change!
