Julie Maes: My child is extreamly small for his age, This is his first year at Ruby Thomas Elementary. For the last four years he has been attending another school. EVERY day he would come home crying because the children were teasing him. Ever since he has attended Ruby Thomas
the first question out my mouth everyday is "How was your day", For the first time in five years he says "Great". The principal Mr Kabala always has time to talk to you, for any reason, and the teachers (Ms. Smith, and Mr Thomas are absolutely wonderful. If you are having doubts about sending your child there, because it is considered a high risk school, take no worry, Your child will love it.
