  • I also agree about the discrimination with (...). Have had lots of problems with him suspending my child for being bullied.

  • I was one of the persons helping out with the cleaning up after the fire at you'r school several year's back. and you all treated us very well. everyone was just as nice as could be. and i never got the chance to thank you, and the lady's in the lunch room who did such a great job on our lunch everyday. Thank's for making my work day's such a nice place to work. i now have a grandson attending you'r school for the first time and it feels good to know he's in good hand's.

  • This school does not even rank an apple in my opinion!! Parents be ware of assistant principal Mr. Harris especially if your child is white. The school is an excellent example of reverse discrimintation both in the classrooms and the athletic department. Some of the teachers and staff members are wonderful and agree but can't take a stand because of fear of losing their jobs!! What A SHAME!!! If you are thinking of moving in the Pinson area and have children who will be attending Rudd RETHINK it. You do not want them to attend Rudd!!
