10 Parent Reviews for Rusk Middle School

So far so good...? I have only met the band teacher (great guy) and the "office staff" so I am a little torn in my review. I have to say the front office staff seem to not know what is going on at their school and they are VERY rude! I hope the rest of the staff are more like the band teacher. I will ...  Read more

The long and short of it is the administration is horrible. Most notably the Principal.

This school is bad. The teachers barely teach. I can only think of one teacher on my team that actually teaches. When the teachers are teaching, the kids misbehave. They are throwing pencils, making weird noises, screaming, and they never stop talking. I get distracted easily, and these kids are distracting ...  Read more

Everything about this school says "TRASH." From the princable to the students who attend. I really do not know how this school has gotten 9 out of 10.. If there was a 0 stars option, i'd choose it.

They (most of the school, with some great exceptions) are careless. The school does not do a good job ...  Read more

Not very impressed with school thus far. While most teqchers are competent, I seem only to meet the arrogant one. Teacher- parent communication is lacking.

I really love this school! They really seem to be preparing my child for high school. The teachers are held to a high standard. The staff also is very welcoming of parental involvement and that is so important to me.

Dean Rusk Middle School was about average for a public school. I enjoyed it a lot though. There were a few problems there such as possible gangs (though fights were rare- I only heard of one while i was there) and one of my teachers didnt really teach us at all (she gave us busy work the whole year like ...  Read more
