Profile Completeness


Want to improve this school’s profile? You can!

All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.

I went to this school and now my kids have went here. I am very happy with Carruthers. Any problems that have come up have been taken care of immediately. The staff is friendly and welcoming and the teachers are wonderful.

This is a horrible school. The principal is completely unprofessional, rude, and hateful. The teachers could possibly be fine with better leadership, but currently follow her lead. Students are punished using isolation and restraining. If your child is pegged as a problem, they are treated as if they are a mental hospital patient. I'm horrified by what I've experienced and what other parents have told me about their experiences. Send your kids to the General John A Logan Attendance Center. They are truly wonderful people there (at GJALAC.)

Great School. The new principal next year should bring a lot to an already wonderful teaching staff.
