The test scores listed here are outdated and misrepresent how great this school is. I'm impressed and greatful for how well organized the school is given the damands made on this, and many, public schools. Communication from my daughter's teacher is clear and well structured which really helps me hold up my end as a parent regarding schedules and homework. The principal is an outstanding leader and has won state-wide praise and commendations. (Recruiters, hands off!) The music program is growing and parents packed the auditorium for last month's concert. And to top it off, there's an amazing view of Mt. St. Helens from the top of the jungle gym.

We have two children that have been going to Russell for the past two years. It is an extraordinary school. The administration is extremely competent and the teachers are top-notch. They recently remodeled and expanded a music room where they have a full-time music teacher. We could not be more pleased with Russell elementary

My son is in 1st grade at Russell. When we started there in kindergarten I realized just how great of a school it really is. The teachers are attentive and very caring! And they have a great reading program! My son was reading at a second grade level by the end of kindergarten. He couldn't wait for summer break to be over so he could go back to school! We love Russell Academy! Love that they require uniforms! And love the the overall atmosfer in the school, all the kids always seem happy! I can't wait till my daughter starts kindergarten there next year! Oh, and they are in process of building a new music/ multi purpose room! And they even have a full time music teacher now!! This school is the best of the best! I am so greatful it is my neighborhood school! We are very fortunate to be a part of this wonderful school!

I have a daughter with high functioning Autism and transferred her from another school. We are pleased with her progress. Everyone from the school secretary, teachers assistants, and the lunch lady are extrememly nurturing and kind. My daughter loves going to school and can't wait to share what she's learned. Leaving a child with special needs in the care of strangers is difficult and we may worry more than most. When I drop off my daughter at Russell, I know she's in wonderful hands and she's receiving a great education.

My children are transfers from another school, my kids were not very happy at their past school. Since they started at Russell they are happy and enjoy learning again, they have lots of new friends, and they are enjoying reading and math a lot. I have not heard one complaint from them about the school and that just makes me so happy, they come home with smiles on their faces and are excited to tell me about what they learned and did at school that day. Out of a 1 -10 and 10 being the best Russell Academy scores a 10 in my book!

Russell Academy has terrific leadership with Mr. Rose as the principal. He brings out the best in each staff and student. The staff is incredible, as are the parents who volunteer. The code of dress, school pledge, and other disciplines that are implemented make it a safe and fun learning environment. We are thankful to have our son at this fine school. I would highly recommend other schools, including middle and high school grades following this protocol as this will help all students to do their best especially as they get into higher grades.
