    Ruus Elementary made a major overhaul with some new staff members and a new principal. I am excited to see the positive changes this school and the students deserve.

    Not a school to have your children enrolled in. Do your research look for a school that will benefit your child/ren. Teachers here dont seem to care if your child is passing there is no discipline and the principal has no order and does not do his job well. There are no support from teachers nor the principal at all. Im am now looking to place my children in a better school in doing my search to place them in a better school. Don't let the 5 star ratings fool you this school needs lots of help. Do your homework search for what is best for your children.
