    I've siad it before and I will say it again this school is the greatest. The teachers and the administration really care about all of the children. Every teachers / staff knows the kids by first name. This school cleaned up the mess that another school created in my daughters first years of education. The school is primarily economically challenge families but you would not know that by the respect that everyone gets.

    Rusk is a great school. I went there and now my daughter goes there to. They learn so much at such a young age i was very impressed. Even though the school is econocally challenged i would move her anywhere. The priciple really tries to help the students and there are projects being worked on to raise money for a wather station. There are many things that need to be fixed but acadamic wise it's very good. Every one knows each other like a family and they really do care what happens to your children.
