I loved the atmosphere at Russell and the fact that everyone, no matter if it was a teacher, your coach, or the principal, wanted what was best for you and wanted you to achieve your goals was the best part. I just felt like I was part of a huge family at Russell. The teachers at Russell were excellent and are very qualified for their jobs. They taught me more than just what they were required, they taught me how to be a better person and social skills that will be needed in my future. Another good thing about Russell was our principal was very involved in everything we did. I know that most of the time they have to be, but I always felt that my principal would do anything to help me reach my future goals. My principal taught me something that I will keep with me forever. She said, "There are two things you can control in any situation, your attitude and your effort" and that is something that I live by especially being a freshman in college.

Great school for children of all ages! The teachers are.great and the academics are the best around. It's a public school, but one of the best in the area
Russell Independent is an excellent school system for academics, and even for sports. My biggest pet peeve with Russell is their lack of arts studies in all levels. There really aren't any after school clubs involving arts or anything of the sort. However the classes are top notch and the teachers there are excellent.
