    I recently visited the school to volunteer in my child's classroom. We were constantly interupted by the principal making announcements. When asked how frequently this happens I was told way to often not to mention it was hard to understand what she was saying. There are other ways to get announcements out such as email or newsletters that do not interupt the child's learning. We accomplished half of what could have been accomplished. I am becoming more impressed by the teachers daily. They are working hard and really push the kids to the limits. On the other hand the way the principal runs things don't get me excited.

    I have been very pleased with Rucker Blvd. My daughter has been challenged not just given A's to appease the parents. I love the teachers and they have been wonderful communicating with me and putting up with my never ending concerns. We are planning to move to a new home in the next year and I am hoping to find a place to build where I can stay at this school. I would recommend this school. We have been here since 1st grade now in 4th. It has had it's bumps but you can't expect everything in life to be sugar coated. I would like to comment on the review about safety being number one. What is more important to you as a parent YOUR child being SAFE and in good hands or SMART??? Kind of a no brainer to me.

    This school is among one of the best in Enterprise. Yes our students to have to stay in for PE a lot but it is due to the high temperatures. There is no gym so the PE teachers do the best they can by providing exerise videos and having the students participate using the videos while inside. As for the schools cleanliness...other principals have brought custodians to RBE to see 'what a clean school looks like'. The school is currently under construction so things may seem out of sorts. Yes...safety is of great concern at RBE. Without your children feeling safe no education will take place!!! As for the words of the principal...I was at the meeting and the below review took the words out of context.

    I love this school. First off I would like to say with all the craziness of the world today I appreciate the concern for the safety of my children by school faculty and staff. Second there is no gym. When the weather is very hot or raining they stay inside. Yes there is a large TV but they put on exercise videos and the kids have to paricipate. I see nothing wrong with that. I always feel welcome everytime I step in the building. Teachers have been great to my children and I thank them for that everyday.

    I have been disappointed with the school. I have been trying to get good communication going with the school but it seems as though I keep getting put off. I am going to give it a little longer then I will make my decision. I agree that the school seems to just ignore the parents.

    I have to agree with the posters making comments about the principal Jackie Dubose. She is in serious need of 'people skills'. I have been having some concerns with my daughter's reading and have been brushed off by the principal and teachers of this school. Things have gotten so bad that I am considering homeschooling. Beware of the school and their policies although it appears that some of these policies are 'Enterprise School System' policies so better yet be weary of the entire district!

    I want to agree with the parent in reference to the principal Jackie Debose-she displays poor people skills and is very harsh and unprofessional-

    Hello I have 2 children that go to Rucker Blvd they have been there since they started school. There are some great teachers at Rucker Blvd Mrs Caskey Mrs. Taylor Mrs. Slaughter Mrs. Oliver Mrs. Rhodes and Mrs. Christy Hixson these are ladies that care about the kids in there class and make sure that you are always informed. I can say this because theses are the teachers that my children have had. I will say to any parent if you want to be informed let it be known in the beginning and don't back down.

    My son has been going here for almost three years now. We love them! The teachers and other staff are so friendly and approachable. I also enjoy volunteering as much as possible in this wonderful environment.

    Run run away. I am not some angry parent blowing off steam. The principal Jackie DuBose is the worst I have ever seen. She treats people like second class citizens. She has no respect for the students or parents. Dr. Reece would benefit from replacing her or sending her to professional development classes to improve her people skills. It was bad enough for my child that we purchased a house in another neighborhood to escape Rucker Boulevard.

    This school is great and the teachers are good. I do have to agree with the person above. We need more newer technology in this school along with more art and drama activities. Chiildren need to learn through being invovled

    My son has attended Rucker Blvd two going on three years now. I have always been impressed with his teachers and their dedication to him. I am concerned with the lack of computer training and art programs and overall test scores for the school. My son has always been above average and frankly the average SAT test scores for the remainder of the school have me concerned. I highly recommend this school its teachers and Ms. Dubose (Principal)despite that. They are truly dedicated to the children.
