The reason I believe in the kids that attend R.I.S.D. is because our kids go there and they like it there(surprisingly). When a kid likes their school, they will excel.

I attended this school also, I must admit I received a decent education, especially when it came to math and biology. Unfortunately, I can not say that about the Chemistry and Physics courses.

I went there all my life and I walked away with a 4.0 and a full ride to Notre Dame. It is a great school.

If moving to East Texas, Rusk is one of the more favored school options in the area. Most teachers care about the students and are willing to put in a bit of extra time to see that students are academically and emotionally healthy. I would say that Rusk is the best for the average student. The mindset in Rusk doesn't seem to cater to the students that really want to step out of the mainstream ways of thinking. Although there is diversity, there is little multiculturalism and even forms of prejudical thinking. A global way of experiencing the world does not seem to be a concern. There are some in the school leadership that are 'my way or the highway.' There are an unfortunate number of cliques, and parent politics can put constraints on teachers and programs. However, students will receive a decent academic education.

This is a great school. The students are academically great, and prepared for college. Many college courses are offered in the curriculum. Extracurricular programs excel, especially the band. This school does not deal with discipline problems that other area schools have.

This school is AWFUL! The teachers and 'authority' at this school are WAY under par.This school does very poorly as far as standardized tests are concerned. This school is unsafe.
