    Overall Experience: Over all most of the teachers care about their students and how well they are at learning the class.

    Russellville does focus on their art and football students the most.

    Russellville has a great band and every year they always score ones.

    Overall Experience: Mediocre at best. The teachers and administration were too strict and classes were either too easy or way above the level they should be.

    Overall Experience: I've attended Russellville High School my entire educational career, and there is not other school in the region I would rather go to. My school provides me with many educational opportunities as well as opportunities to just get involved in my community.

    Overall Experience: This school is alright. That's really the best I can say. The teachers, when you are lucky, care about the students but most just want you to pass the class and get out. Without necessarily learning anything. The administration is outdated and an overall joke. The students don't respect the non-teacher faculty because of how they are treated. Sports is god and everything else is background. Decent education all things considered though. Grounds, when not being under constant construction, are also not bad.
