My daughter is in kindergarden at Ruskin Elementary and I have had not one problem. The teachers and staff are all interested in the childrens well being and also are not afraid to speak with parents either on a friendly basis or an academic basis. I feel I made the right choice by sending her here rather than the two other schools I had in mind.
