They use punishment to manipulate you into doing things for them. My daughter never gets in trouble but came home crying because she had to sit out lunch and the party on Friday because I didn't have a chance to sign her folder. Why would you hurt my child to get back at me.



- a parent
There is no communication from teachers, current Principle or office staff. The only thing teachers are worried about is benchmark tests and Starr test scores. In the end no matter what score kids get they still pass to the next grade but teachers still stress kids out about test scores.


Teacher effectiveness: Strongly disagree


- a parent
Teachers don't communicate with Parents. As a Parent I have never experienced this from Teachers and the Current Principle and Vice Principle are just as bad.

Amount of homework: Agree


- a parent
Homework was fine but often to much especially on weekends. The homework planners were helpful but if you forget to sign the planner even once kids are punished with eating alone.

Develops character: Disagree


- a parent
The teachers and current Principle manipulate students. The teachers have favorite students and God forbid a parent speak up about it.

The principal here is great and so is the majority of the staff. If your child is in need of help or tutoring, this is the school for you. If your child is an over achiever you may want to look somewhere else. Especially if they are in the sixth grade. There is one teacher at this school who makes it very difficult for above average students. It was so bad we had to make special arrangements so our child would no longer be in her class.

I am very pleased to have my children at Rusk Elementary. I have had 2 children there for several years & my youngest will start Kindergarten next year. The teachers, principal & staff are the absolute BEST!
