This is the first school in alabama to have all highly qualified teachers and faculty. This is the best school around our area, and our band program is amazing as well as our sports programs. I go to this school and i love it.

Poor school system. I am so thankful we have moved our children. The school we are at now is light years ahead in education. A lot of money,politics directed toward the football program & facilities but the educational side of this school system is very behind.

Fantastic school system. Second to none in the nation for facilities, band, football, theatre, etc. Over a $1,000,000.00 in schoalarships awarded each year to graduating seniors.

Russellville is an excellent school system for many different reasons. The schools leaders and teachers are second to none. Not only are they great educators, but they are class people who believe in getting things done the right way. Russellville has first class facilities with modern technologies which make for a great environment for learning. I had the chance to go to other schools closer to my home, but I am thankful everyday that my parents sent me to Russellville.

Teachers and Administration care about the kids' success. Even athletic coaches stress academic achievement. Discipline and respect are demanded. Quality of teachers is very high. We couldn't imagine our children going to a better school or environment. After having our children in supposedly superior California schools, we have found Russellville to be light years ahead of California.
