Rutherford is located in a multi-ethnic community. My children go to school with children from many other countries, and I love it! They are making friends from Iraq, Cuba, Guatemala, Bosnia, Thailand, and many other countries.

I chose Rutherford Elementary for my daughter because of the Visual Arts Magnet program, and also because the student population is highly diverse. My daughter ...  Read more

No one has commented since 2008, what does that tell you? Currently this school has failed for two consecutive years. It has met 11 of the 17 academic testing goals, but did not make the AYP ( Adequate Yearly Progress ). Sadly like most schools, with bussed children and not many neighborhood families ...  Read more

This is my child's first year at Rutherford. I love the diversity and the sense of community there. Rutherford really makes you want to get involved and is very welcoming to parents. I'm so happy my child is attending school there.

Rutherford is a great school. The principal really makes you feel welcome. The academics have really taken off. I would recommend the school to anyone. Great atmosphere great people. Most of the parents here have no idea what a great place it is to go to school. It has been rewarded many times ...  Read more
