Russian Mission School has enjoyed an educational renaissance of sorts. Students love school, teachers love their jobs, and parents play an active role in the education of their children. There are many reasons for the academic success of students at Russian Mission School. We hire and retain outstanding teachers; Instruction is standards driven and student focused; Our school program reflects the values of our community.
Part of motivating students to meet and exceed their potential is building a trusting relationship--where student and teachers are both learners and teachers. By sponsoring and participating in place-based activities, students and teachers share common experiences that easily translate into academic projects. By keeping school an exciting place to learn, student and teachers are able to avoid "burn out" and maximize their potential.
