Ruskin Elementary School 5

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: Just right

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.

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

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.
