Rutherford Public Schools Reviews
Rutherford High school was an excellent school. I felt prepared when I entered college not only from an educational standpoint but from a personal one as well. The environment and the people are so welcoming and act as a family they provide the support you need. The school had a great school spirit as well and made being involved so much fun. Everyone knows school is most importantly about education but colleges look at how involved you were as well with sports, clubs, and community service. Rutherford made it easy to be involved in all of the above by providing a vast amount of extracurriculars to spark the interest of everyone within the school.
I personally think the Rutherford Public School district is more advanced than others and leaves their alumni appropriately ready for college. The high school has many opportunities for it's students to get involved in the community through its wide range of clubs and organizations. There are also plenty of ways in which the students can receive college credit and money for their future. I am certain that I thrived here at Rutherford High School, and would not have done as well if it were any other school district.
The schools in Rutherford are a step above. The courses are challenging and the teachers are talented. We have a private school in our town that charges what I pay for tuition now and our public school students score upwards of 500 points higher on the SAT's annually. The administration is strict but flexible and understand what it's like to be a kid in high shcool, but also never slack so much that anyone is unsafe. The public school system in Rutherford are exceptional i cannot reccomend them enough.
