The instruction at Ruggles is excellent! The principal is a great instructional leader and has built a learning community among her teaching staff. The school serves economically disadvantaged students and is doing great things for students

I attended Ruggles k-8 (Valedictorian '92)and I have nothing but good things to say about this school. The teachers were very supportive and made learning fun.
