• Exceptional Education and Student Services 


    At Ruth N. Upson, we are dedicated to serving all of our students and empowering every student to achieve success. All of our students at this school are served in the general education setting. Students with disabilities receive support from one of our varying exceptionlities (VE) teachers and/or our speech and language pathologist while remaining in the general education setting for the majority of the school day.
