i go to ron russle and attend 6th grade and was terrified about the transition from elementary school to middle school but i was very pleasently welcomed at RRMS with the very nice teachers and great envirnment although the teachers could control the students a bit more i love RRMS and love the very modern envirnment and if students read this i will tell you that the teachers give you enough homework to keep your parents happy and most of the time you can get it done at school

I attended Ron Russell Middle School and admire the teachers. I loved the teachers, they all inspired me to do great things. If there were things that the school could consider changing, would be conflict between the students. The same students get in petty fights, yet they only suffer 2-3 day suspension. The teachers need to stop being so oblivious to these particular students and do something ABOUT IT. But other than that, I loved my time there. Clean, new, beautiful school with a wonderful staff.

Ron Russell offers a well-rounded education with complimentary programs, while challenging exceptional students and providing additional support for students who struggle. Ron Russell maintains its sports, music, and art programs to compliment the scholastic curriculum. These days, many schools are losing complimentary programs and students are losing the engaging richness that education has to offer. Ron Russell, despite the challenges of being a public school and having difficulty with funding, has been able to maintain superior educational opportunities.

This is the worst school my kids have ever been to. The school itself has failing grades, and BOTH of my kids now have failing grades. My daughter who is normally an A/B student now has D's and F's. My son has attended Ron Russell for 7th and 8th grade... and is completely failing. I tried to get their school books so I could just teach them myself and help them, and I was told that the students have to give up collateral to check out a text book. I tried talking with a counselor and the principal and got no where. I will be transfering both of my children to a better school. If you want your kids to fail... this is the school for you! I can't believe I wasted two years of my kids important school years on this school.
