I grew up in San Jose, CA, and went to Ruskin from K-5th grade. The school always had programs meant to encourage students to achieve, and the school secretary was especially nice. :)
This school is wonderful. They had a good science lab when I attended but I am not sure if they still have it due to the budget cuts. They also have a very friendly office staff that makes everyone feel very welcome.
Ruskin is a great school. The teachers are very knowledgeable and dedicated. One of the best schools in San Jose.
I have 2 kids attending this school. I have no complaints as far as there academic goes. The teachers here gave my kids a excellent foundation. Without building a foundation for your child, they would be lost. My kids are continuing to thrive in every aspect. Teachers always say that education starts at home but I believe with a push from the right mentor, our kids will succeed.
We LOVE Ruskin. Kindergarten was a wonderful experience for our son. There are numerous activities and events and this school works really hard to supplement the ever decreasing budget to maintain the diverse and enriching atmosphere. The Principal and PTA president are AMAZING.
My daughter, and niece goes to this school. They have the best manners and they learn a lot. Teachers are great. We love this school.
Ruskin has a diverse group of talented teachers. They treat each student as if they were their own child and children are excited about going to school. This allows for a good relationship between the teacher and the student. This is a very big blessing for me as a parent.
Parents, teachers, and staff work together to make this school succeed.
