I love Rutland Elementary. The teachers and office team are truly exceptional. Parent involvement is #1 and I believe it makes a whale of a difference. I cannot express my thanks to Yvonne Kitrell and every single teacher and office person that makes that school run smoothly. I wish you could go on through the 12th grade!

I strongly recommend this school to anyone. Rutland is an excellent school with outstanding teachers and strong leadership. Parents are always encouraged to participate in the many activities that are available to children. The only areas that could be improved is the music and arts program; however, this is a countywide issue, not necessarily the school itself.

This school is one of only two in the county I would even consider moving to be in. The Leadership is wonderful, the teachers great, and there is never a shortage of parents, in school, supporting everyone from the office down to the lunch staff. Rutland Rockets are great.

I consider this school as good as many private schools out there. The teaching staff is well educated and seem enthusiastic about helping each child do as well as possible.
