Ruffner Elementary School Reviews
Both of my children have attended Ruffner Elementary School. I have a daughter who is currently enrolled for the fall 2009 yr. Ruffner is a very clean and well represented school. I believe that both my daughters have got the very best education possible. I have met alot of very good teachers, in the years that my children have attended. However, i am transfering my daughter this year. The bullying at Ruffner is terrible. My daughter has adhd and she has suffered terribly do to the harassment and abuse of other students. She often comes home crying and very depressed. I have brought this to the attention of the staff and her teachers at the time. The abuse continued and got to the point that i would put her education on the back burner, just so her happiness comes first. It upsets me terribly that i have to transfer her, i just refuse to allow such abuse to occur any longer. I will miss the school, and the teachers that have made a difference in her life. But as a parent my daughters happiness is all that matters to me.
