I am a former honor student of this school, and I am extrememly proud to be one. This school has offered me more activities, challenges, support, and appreciation than any other school I've attended. This school has truly made learning fun and exciting for me because of all the outstanding and caring teachers(like Mr. Giraud, Mrs. Kutcher, Senora Kaufman, Mrs. Hall, and Mrs. Churchill) and all the enjoyable(and at the same time academically challenging) activities offered. I would highly recommend this school for any parent even considering allowing their child to attend here. Go Roadrunners!

This school has many electives, but everyone is in at least one elective, so they fill up fast, but you have 7 back up choices... Sometimes they you get one that is not even one of your choices, and most of the time they won't let you transfer out. The year-long electives are great especially the music program. They are able to provide students with the school instruments, even drumsets. The discipine and safety is moderate. Most of the students there segregate into their own groups that don' t really cooperate with one another.

The campus is large and feels more like a high school or small college, but students are arranged in villages to provide a more intimate feel. The facility is beautiful and many electives are offered.

Rancho Santa Margarita Intermediate is a wonderful school. My two daughters who attend the school really like it. They offer so many electives for the kids. The music program is awesome. My daughter plays the French horn and the school was able to provide an instrument to use at home in addition to one at school. The school has a ton of kids and I was very concerned about this. The staff really has good control over the kids and the supervision is excellent. One of my daughters had an incident where another student was harassing her. It was brought up to the staff and they took care of the situation very quickly. The school has a lot of spirit. Overall I was pleased with the academics except for the Language Arts area. I think the kids need more writing assignments. I would highly recommend this school!

I think RSM Intermediate is an outstanding school, performance shows enthusuastic student involvment, good habits taught. Leadership in the principal is outstanding. Communication with parents ranks high also.

RSM Intermediate seems to have the perfect philosophy for helping students make the transition from elementary school to high school by putting seventh graders into 'villages'. My child has the same group of core teachers as all the other students in his village. Also, the school has a daily television broadcast by the video production students. The other uses of technology at the school are phenomenal ie: class sets of laptops, video microscopes, every teacher has a website, and I can check my child's grades online! When my son was having trouble in Math, he was helped by the additional tutoring hours that the school offers before school, at lunch, and after school.
