We have been disapointed in this school. They have been unable to challange our child academicly so he has lost intrest in school.

Teachers are commited to provide the children with an adequate education. The topographic location of Ruth N. Upson contributes a lot to the lower percentage scored. My daughter has been attending this school since the beginning of this school year and feels at ease, her academic progress has increased, ...  Read more
