I graduated from Russell and now my kids will go to Russell. It’s a great school system with wonderful teachers and students. I love how they take academics seriously and want the students to excel in every aspect. My daughter talks about how much she loves going and enjoys learning. This makes me so happy! That’s when you know the schools are doing their job. Thank you Russell for doing what you do best!

Russell Independent Schools are well known for their distinguished academics and sports, something we are proud of. My overall experience at Russell is favorable in they truly make you feel at home, their is no other school I would have rather attended.
My experience at Russell independent schools is rather bitter sweet. Of course no one likes to wake up early to go to school every morning, but I have a got time while I’m there, make good memories with friends, and learn a lot along the way. There are some tough teachers but those are the ones who have taught me the most. I would not like any changes to occur.
