This school and district is continuing to go down hill. Class sizes increased dramatically with budget cuts. During dialogue with Mrs. Evans and my daughters teacher about helping my child and what we could do together, she replied "well it isn't going to get any better with more cuts coming." I took my child out of the district to a private school this year, I had to try something....I owe it to my daughter to help her receive the best education possible.

My daughter went through 1 1/2 yrs preschool and now is in 2nd grade and I love this school. They are consistent and have lots of parenting nights. Every year I get e-mails from the teachers to keep me updated. She is in challenge center and loves to learn and I know it is her teachers and Mrs Evans who make this fun for her. The fact that we walk in and alot of the teachers know her by name says alot about this school and how much they care.

I really like Rue. My daughter started there in Kindergarden, and we moved in the summer. Even though we were out of the area I wanted her to attend there. So after talking with the principal she agreed to let her. I really like the teachers there. They all try to keep the parents involved which I think is very important. I wouldn't even think of my girls going anywhere else.
