Rucker has an amazing media center and literacy program. The amazing teachers and staff work hard to support the students, their health, and literacy. The highly experienced teachers make differences in the day to day life of their students. The downside to the school is that the teachers are not supported by leadership, and the school will continue to face high turnover until it wakes up to the reality of in support teachers, and reviews the cheating policies, which some parents have pushed and succeeded for their children to succeed with cheating. It is wiped under the table. The teachers are great, but they will continue leaving if something does not change.

Awesome School!!! I think the staff is great and very helpful. My Son loves going there and is an honor student. I also love the interaction with his teachers and I. I would recommend this school for any one moving to this location.
The school has a number of unprofessional teachers who are kept of because the district can't find teachers qualified teachers who eant to come to Lancaster. Most of the poorly trained teachers are from Lancaster. Most teachers does not adhere to IEPs. The school holds children accountable for negative behaviors which could be minimized or avoided had teachers adhered to IEPs. Teachers are not held accountable which result in state complaints and law suits because the district has a tendency to ignore complaints until the state becomes involved.
