Develops character: Strongly disagree


- a parent
As I have said before they only care about your children's coming to school every day so they can receive their federal dollars.



- a parent
The school has lost a number of good teachers recently, and the amount of homework assigned to students seems to vary greatly between teachers even at the same grade level. In addition, parents have expressed concerns or made inquiries to the administration and received inadequate responses.




- a parent
The staff is a mixture of veteran teachers and new teachers. The "school climate" is positive and all students are encouraged. Test scores are historically high so many families try to get into Ruskin. A great environment for my 4 children!

Amount of homework: Agree


- a parent
Students are neither over-burdened nor given too little homework. Teachers have told me that on average they aim for 10 to 15 minutes of homework for each year or grade - take 3rd grade - 3 X 15. so about 45 minutes of homework a night.

Develops character: Agree


- a parent
Teachers model friendliness and positive problem solving. My kids have been through anti-bullying and "Project Cornerstone" training.




- a parent
As it is in any school, most of the teachers are amazing. They really care about the students. But there are a few teachers where you don't feel the same and these are the ones that make a bigger impression, unfortunately.

Teacher effectiveness: Neutral

NOOOO!!!!! THEY ARE TOTALLY OPPOSITE; NO ONLY WITH THE STUDENTS BUT WITH THE PARENTS DIRECTLY. THEY DISCRIMINATE THEM TOO. AND IF THE PARENTS ARE TRYING TO PROTECT THEIR CHILDREN FROM BULLYING THEY WILL GET BULLY FROM THE PRINCIPLE AND HER ASSISTANT.

My child went to Ruskin from the middle of 3rd grade. It was a great year. My child learned a lot from there. In his old school he did not learn that much.
