A Message from the Russell Family of Schools
As principals of the Russell Family of Schools, our family welcomes yours.
At Cambridge Public, Russell Public and Russell High School, we strive for excellence in all that we do. We believe in an inclusive culture of care where we take pride in meeting the needs of all of our students. Through Service Excellence, we engage you, the parents in supporting your children in their educational journey.
Our schools teach to the head and the heart through our character education programs. We promote the virtues of perseverance, courage, generosity, responsibility, caring, respect, resiliency, empathy, honesty, and fairness. We are preparing your children to be the stewards of our future.
Our students enjoy quality learning opportunities in math, science, languages, health and physical education and the arts. We provide our students with a learning environment that recognizes that children learn best when engaged with real world, authentic tasks, involving problem solving using 21st century skills. We embrace technology in all of our classrooms and promote the use of critical thinking skills where student voice leads the learning.
Beginning in Kindergarten, we offer access to excellent French Immersion and Core French programs that are responsive to our bilingual communities. We focus on building strong physical literacy skills because we believe students who get active at school, stay active for life, leading to overall student wellness, mental health, and academic success.
Our Family of Schools is truly one family; we work hard to ensure our students have successful transitions between their elementary schools and the high school. As your children transition to Russell High School, they will enjoy apprenticeship programs, cooperative education opportunities with our local businesses, and our Specialist High Skills Major program in transportation technology. Students will have many hands-on learning experiences through construction technology, transportation, foods and fashion classes, and our science laboratories. They will experience cultures of the world through our International Hub, where students from abroad come to RHS to study. In addition, our partnership with Algonquin College allows our students to earn college credits while attending Russell High School.
As principals, we take the responsibility of caring for your children greatly and are dedicated to providing them with a quality education. Please feel free to contact us so our family can work with yours to ensure our students’ success.
