I am the parent of a child that attends this school. The school is pretty good in spite of being in a 'not so good' area. It is what your child makes of it. There are some great teachers and some great opportunities for students who do well. I think it would benefit from some better activities for advanced students.

This school is okay. Its clean, but they had no sports when I went. The best thing about this school is some of its teachers, like Mr. Crispen and Mr. Vo

I just now graduated from this middle school. The faculty is friendly and I enjoyed my two-year stay. Our ASB gives us activities so this school won't be so dull.

Ruth O. Harris is a fantastic school! It has a great learning environment. The whole staff is amazing. All of the teachers love their jobs and want to be there to help students. Many extra-curricular activities are also coming up for students.

Ruth O. Harris is a great school. But it needs more security! There have been too many fights the past month. There is like one fight everyday.

I gave it 2 stars beacuse the new gate they put up looks like a jail. Me, along with many other students, DO NOT like it. Plus, there are too many rules to follow and it's always the good people that do sowmthing, like dress code, only once and get caught while all these other little girls dress in their mini skirts and their boobs popping out everyday.

As a concerned parent, this school sure is trying to help our students to attain a better education. The only concern of mine is the lack of sports activities and extracurricular activities for our students to continually be challenged to their fullest potential. It would be nice if they can learn additional skills aside from academic akills.

Ruth Harris Middle is currently improving itself through the vigorous work of a dedicated staff. The school is consistently implementing standards-based education while supporting student growth and maturity. Parents are becoming more involved in their students' lives. The school just implemented a program called Coffee with the Principal in which students and parents can meet in the evening with the Principal and ask questions pertaining to the school's programs, rules and regulations, and other items of interest. The school has improved its API over the past several years, and strives to reach and API of 700 very soon. New housing continues to be built around Bloomington, leading to an increase in students at the school. The staff expects to see a continued increase in students at Ruth Harris over the next few years. The Colton School District is in the process of building a new middle school to accomodate new students.

Ruth O. Harris Middle School is an enviroment of 0 tolerance of violance or the threat of violance. There is security presence on campus and a focus on tolerance from the students. The teachers are communicative with the parents and I found it to be a healthy enviroment for my student to learn in.

This school has many exciting things to offer in a school you want your child to go to. It has many campus supervisors for the safety of our children. It also has included parents in on many of the things our children are doing in the classroom. It gives you an idea on what they are learning and what they do in class everyday. They have many school activites so if you are coming home late everyday you know that they are in a safe envoirnment and that they will be taken care of. So you dont have to worry about not knowing where your child is at all times. That is why Ruth O. Harris is the school for my child.
