I transferred into Russellville High School my sophomore year and they faculty and staff made it the easiest transition of all! The teachers really love what they do and make it a point to connect to their students. There is a place for all at Russellville High, so many diverse clubs for any and every interest and if there is not one you are interested in you have the choice to create one! When I graduated and started at Arkansas Tech I felt as though my high school really made me ready for the next four years of my life. My heart goes out to every teacher, faculty and staff member at Russellville High.

I have attended Russellville School District my entire life. It often gave mixed emotions, but overall it satisfied my basic educational needs. When it came to elementary school the teachers and administrators were great. I attended both London Elementary and Dwight Elementary. Each one I felt at home and happy to be there. When I moved to Russellville Middle School the teachers and administrators seemed less caring, but this may be because of the older more obnoxious kids that attended often caused them to be in bad moods. Now I am in high school and if you ever need help any faculty member will instantly come out and help. The faculties at Russellville are high quality and there is a high quantity of them as well. Whether it comes to the performing arts center or the new basketball/volleyball/wrestling gym we have they are very nice to have and be able to take advantage of. In Russellville we are often reminded of the culture of success that is taught in our district.
I've attended the Russellville School District for 13 years now, and I am so glad that this is the district that I grew up in. All of the elementary schools have about the same test scores and the same opportunities, so there isn't an unfair advantage for kids coming from one school over another. The middle school and junior high have increasingly more options for classes that offer different difficulty levels and nice facilities. Russellville High School has one of the nicest high school campuses in the state. The school seems to improve a little more each year and this is shown with state-of-the-art practice facilities, arena, football field, STEM Center, Arts/Theater Department, and Fine Arts Department. Overall, the administrations are very reasonable with any questions or changes you may have about policies and it's very clear they're there to serve and better the education.
