This school is horrid to say it nicely! The Elementary Schools were good. This school has terrible leadership and the teachers are out of control! It should be shut down and plowed over! Don't expect better from the High School either!!! It gets worse. Get your child out while you can!!!

I dont have any children in this school system. But my fiance has two sons that are in Rudd Middle school. I live with him in a house in pinson. Now I love the city of pinson. I love the area that we live in. But I have definitely heard his sons complain about the school. They have told me that it is taken over by minorities that the teachers are rude. In one example my fiances son told me that he corrected the teacher on a problem that she had written incorrectly; then the teacher kept him after class and got him in trouble for making her look bad. All Ive heard is negative comments from both of them. So I dont know. Ill give it 2 stars cause the city is nice. But I wish the school system was better.
I don't like that this school is so run down. And so many new teachers every year. No parking to really speak of. Especially when administration holds events for all 3 grades on one evening. Seriously? Can't spread it out to make it a little easier not to mention safety? Also WHY do students walk around a parking lot (with traffic no less) for PE? This school can be a much better and safer learning environment if more parents speak up to the BOE and above. Stand up for our kids! Acidemcis needs more help too. Tired of seeing this school get such a low grade/rating year after year after year.
I have been looking at the GOOD comments and i really cant wait to come to the school. My friend and I cant wait?
If a school can not make AYP two years in a row maybe it is time for new leadership. Only the parents in the community can make that happen. Pressure from organized parents has worked wonders in many failing school systems. Stand up parents in Pinson. Take back your school. Demand results.
I went to Pinson schools myself my entire life. Rudd is nothing like when I was there. This is a terrible school system who has not met AYP for two years in a row. If we could move we would I am trying all I can to get my children into AYP passing schools as we speak. The staff here is just as terrible. There are very few teachers that take their job seriously. The others are just there. If you have the chance don't sent your child to any Pinson schools.
Everybody please ignore that comment below "where the heck did they get mr.harris from...----" it was just a joke done by a mad kid who qot in trouble and was venting...!Thanks so much and have a nice day..!
I just purchased a house in this area and I think it was a huge mistake. Not the area but the school. I have had a "run-in" with a teacher and my 7th grade son. My son is a straight A student and has never had a disciplinary problem with any school. I had to deal with Mr. Harris during this incident and something that should have been resolved with a conference turned into a shouting match. I hate I purchased a home in this area and I hate this school.
Assistant principals are a joke. If the Jefferson County School Board allows these two men to become head pricipals at another school then they are making a huge mistake. The dealings that I have had with these two assistants have been very discouraging. Not only do they treat the students poorly they show a complete lack of disrespect to parents. Their smug and disrespectful attitudes do not help in any way. In any meetings that you have with these two morons you can tell that they really enjoy having power over the students.
I don't like this school and i definetly don't like the facilty and the way they treat students
i love rudd middle school i go there im in mrs st john classroom 4 first period
Rudd Administrators work very hard to keep order in the school. Makes me feel very good about the safety of my child.
all the staff really care about the children and work hard to make our school a great place for learning
I love RUDD because it is a great school. The teachers are awesome they are always willing to help out the office staff are helpful and there is a great group of kids that go there.
the principal at Rudd truely cares about these students and is always there to help in any way she can. She doesn't just say it I've seen first hand that she is very invovled.
Rudd Middle School has a principal that cares about each of the kids. She expects the same from each of her teachers and administration. Everyone works together to make sure our kids are receiving the education they need.
Please let me begin by saying that I have been and still am very happy with the education my daughter is receiving at this school. The teachers and staff for the most part really seem to care and try their best to help the children achieve all they can. I love the Pre-AP classes that are offered. I have never had a problem with a teacher getting back to me via email within 1 business day sometimes the same day. Mrs. Whitehurst is awesome as is Mr. Harris. I am very glad that my child is attending this school. It is apparent the teachers I have encountered are in this profession because they want to make a difference in children's lives. I look forward to this year and next for my daughter here at Rudd Middle.
The staff does not treat the children with respect or kindness. The dress code and the locker rules are outrageous.
I like rudd middle school especially the teachers and coaches. i am going to the 7th grade this year and the only thing i have to say is the school needs some updating. but u have to work hard to pass because the teachers dont play around but they still have the humurous side.
Mr. Harris is the best thing that has happened to Rudd in a long time. My student is finally able to learn because Mr. Harris removes the students that misbehaves from the classroom. I wish Mr. Anders would have done the same last year. Students who misbehave should be sent home so the kids who come to the school to actually learn have the opportunity to do so. Detention is a joke. I have heard plenty of other students say 'I only got detention it's no big deal'.
