Russell Cave School started as a one-room schoolhouse built before 1900 on Mount Brilliant's Farm; it was named for a cave on the property. The building was destroyed by fire in the spring of 1926, and students attended classes first in a tent and then in a barn until the school was rebuilt. Russell Cave became an elementary school in the early 1950s. It has since been renovated, with the most recent work completed in 2010. | Recap

What makes our school special

Russell Cave is home to a diverse group of wonderful students and teachers who are committed to learning and educating at the highest possible levels. Our students are pushed to master not only the state standards at their grade level but far beyond. We believe that all students need to be adequately prepared to participate in the 21st-century world; therefore, we provide a wealth of technology and have a 2:1 student-computer ratio.

Our staff also prides itself on a collaborative work environment that breeds a true sense of teamwork and family. We believe that all students can and will learn at high levels.
