Three playgrounds, outdoor classrooms, planted gardens, and many ornamental trees adorn our beautiful campus.

RES believes in treating all students with respect and dignity. We utilize research based instructional strategies and vary teaching styles to meet the needs of all learners. Our teachers build positive relationships and have high expectations for all students. Our goal is that all students will leave RES with the necessary skills to graduate from Benjamin Russell High School with the skills to be successful in their college or career endeavors.
