I absolutely love this school. Not only is a great school academically but it is also one with many wonderful and caring teachers and teacher's aids. They go out of their way to make you feel important and welcome. I contemplated sending my child to private school but I am so glad I decided to give ...  Read more

CRS is a great place to learn, grow, and build memories. The school is built on approximately 1/2 acre of land with a grassy field, blacktopped area, basketball court, wooded area with trail and pond, and formal playground with swings, climbing wall, jungle gym, slides, pulley, monkey bars, and project ...  Read more

My daughter is in kindergarten. Her teacher mrs. Bonner is a very good teacher. My daughter has gone from not being able to spell her name last summer to reading since starting kindergarten. The principal seems to really care about the students. He's even paid for field trips out of his own pocket. There ...  Read more

We have had far too few positive experiences at Charles Russell. The office staff never returns your call, the teachers send all the work home for you to teach your child ( I have no clue what they do at school all day!), and non-existent feedback from the principle. I am extremely disappointed with ...  Read more

Charles Russell has been wonderful experience for my child. They offer a terrific STLP program, an excellent Academic team and super supportive teachers. My daughter has had a wonderful experience and I can't imagine sending her anywhere else.

Charles Russell has many technology opportunities for my child. I am very pleased with the education she has had so far. I am also impressed with the Reading Recovery program available at this school. No where else could a student get individual tutoring for 20 weeks if needed. Way to go Charles ...  Read more

My children have since left this school but as I reflect back on their time spent there, I wish that I would have pulled them sooner and placed them in the school that I placed them in. Send your child wherever you wish but if you send them to this school you will never know their full potential.
