Ruth Clark Elementary is a great school with very caring staff members. Students are expected to meet high academic standards. The teachers care deeply for their students!


Posted May 19, 2013

I have two children that have attended this school, one of which is still there. The Teachers and Para s are devoted and hard working. A social contract is implemented between the students and teachers to better understand how to treat each other with respect. After all, you teach people how to treat you. The respect shown to each other lowers any behavioral issues and allows more time for academic learning. Each student is academically challenged daily, and they get exactly what they need to prepare them for the future. This is truly a great school!

My 3rd and 4th grader have attended this school since 1st and 2nd grade. My 4th grader, due to the excellent staff, was diagnosed and treated for ADD. I credit their attentive teachers for noticing this, when other schools had missed it. They really focus on keeping the parent involved in their child's education. My 3rd grader, who is an accelerated learner, is given what she needs to be continually challenged. We have enjoyed this school, they are excellent in realizing each child learns differently and will focus on what they need to succeed.

About the tests
