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.
They have a great sports and music program. Along with all the teachers and kids!
I realy love Ron Russell middle because they are david douglas district and my son juanito go's there! Juanito has only been going a few months and he was way behind but ron russell took the time and patience to help my son get to were he is saposed to be so he does'nt go on next year feeling left behind and we appreciate this thank you so much Ron Russell you guys are the best!
Their music department is the best. Band teacher Tawnya Garcia is awesome
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.
I am a Parent and Employee of this school district. I have never seen a Staff more dedicated to it's students. The dedication of the Principle, Vice Principle, Teachers and Staff is inspiring. I feel very lucky to have my children study in this amazing school. Every day I see the students benefit from the caring and dedicated Teachers and Staff who care above and beyond what is called for in a job descriptions.
As a parent and employee in this school district, I am proud to say that Ron Russell is a great place to work and send my children to. Despite 80% of our student body qualifying for free or reduced lunches, we are a school rich in caring, dedication, and diversity.
Heard Cheryl Bland is now at Ron Russell - She is one of the best Teachers there is. You are lucky to have her on staff
Ron Russell Middle School serves a high needs student population with educational excellence, dedication,commitment, and care. I am proud to teach at this school and consider myself among the best teachers in the country. Every day I am encouraged by the wonderful work and attitudes of my colleagues. Go Ron Russell!!!
We are so diverse and we work so hard! Even with our many challenges we accomplish big things every day.
Ron Russell has great programs for kids and it is a place kids like to be.
Ron Russell has a very diverse student body. With, ESL classes, Orchestra, Band, Choir, PE, with over 900 students.
It was a great atmosphere to work in last year, and the teachers were great to work with/for.
Because they are obviously willing to go the extra mile to make sure their students are properly funded!
Ron Russell is the best school because we have great kids, any who come to school every dayand try their hardest to do a good job even thought their lives are filled with struggles. We have a wonderful staff who all care about the kids and really love working with middle school children.
Gotta love the staff. I've never worked with a harder-working, down-to-earth, caring group of people. Inspiring.
Teachers are wonderful and understanding. All though staff does not enforce the rules.
