Vision Statement.

At Rutland Grade School we strive to provide for the development of students in an interesting and educationally sound atmosphere.  We provide an opportunity for students to acquire skills, information, and self confidence to maximize their potential for success and productivity as citizens.  Administration, faculty, staff, students, and community members work together in an atmosphere of mutual respect because we appreciate the power of cooperation.  By working together we will achieve more than we ever could on our own.  We have high expectations for our students and ourselves as we continue to improve and grow.
