    "So far so good...? I have only met the band teacher (great guy) and the "office staff" so I am a little torn in my review. I have to say the front office staff seem to not know what is going on at their school and they are VERY rude! I hope the rest of the staff are more like the band teacher. I will update my post later on during the year. Hopefully by then the office staff will have found some other form of employment."

    "This school is bad. The teachers barely teach. I can only think of one teacher on my team that actually teaches. When the teachers are teaching, the kids misbehave. They are throwing pencils, making weird noises, screaming, and they never stop talking. I get distracted easily, and these kids are distracting me. I want to go to college and get a well-paying job. These kids NEVER get disciplined. The teachers just say "Stop!". They don't take points off of their discipline cards. Honestly, that's what the cards were made for! I want to be homeschooled, just so I can learn. I never thought of doing that at my old school."

    "Dean Rusk Middle school is a very good school curriculum wise, although I would just like to say that this school DOES NOT adapt to your needs as a student or as a parent. The staff members have a very poor school justice policy, and the front off staff are very disrespectful & blunt. They have some good teachers, but most teachers are unfair, unfocused, sarcastic and arrogant. I love their Rainbows program after my dad passed, although the principals don't give guidance counselors ANY time to do their job. To me, as a student the students are less playful than the teachers, and the seventh grade teachers focus more on fun and games than the value of learning in students. It is highly agitating and the majority of their staff are highly unprofessional and disrespectful"

    "Everything about this school says "TRASH." From the princable to the students who attend. I really do not know how this school has gotten 9 out of 10.. If there was a 0 stars option, i'd choose it. This is my last year at Dean Rusk, and I cant be more HAPPIER. The princables are disrespectful and unfair. If you breath by them they'll give you iss for a week. Along with the front office ladies, they are very rude.. Has even hung up on people before. The teachers DO NOT know how to teach.. theres only a handful of teachers that are actually GREAT teachers.. Other than that.. its like learning from a wall. This school is FULL of drama, fights, curse words (even some coming from teachers and staff members.) This school is VERY unprofessional in every possible way. The princables are new this year, which has made this school even worse. Very poor decision made by Cherokee County. I would not recommend this school to ANYONE. I honestly HATE this school. The princables and teachers make me want to become homeschooled.. Thats how bad it is. I don't feel safe at all, the food and bathroom conditions are just to the point where you want to throw up. And again, I VERY MUCH HATE THIS SCHOOL."
