A School Transforming To Excellence
The oldest school in the county, built in the 1950’s as James Solomon Russell High School –it was the county’s black high school. After integration it became the junior high school servicing grades 7-9. This status remained until 2006 when the additional wing was finished at the high school. That year the high school was given grades 9-12 and Sturgeon Elementary was closed and turned into the administration building and 6th grade was moved from the elementary schools to the middle school. After that point RMS held grades 6-8.

“It may be hard for an egg to turn into a bird: it would be a jolly sight harder for it to learn to fly while remaining an egg. We are like eggs at present; and you cannot go on indefinitely being just an ordinary, decent egg. We must be hatched or go bad.”C. S. Lewis
