Principal Welcome


Welcome to the Rutherford High School website. We serve grades 6 through 12 and are located in the Springfield area of Panama City, Florida. We are committed to our mission of preparing students to be productive citizens and life-long learners in an ever-changing world.

Rutherford High School offers several different tracks to its students. We encourage academic excellence and are host to Bay County’s only International Baccalaureate program and also offer Advanced Placement, dual-enrolled, and honors-level courses that are available to all students. Other programs include the Air Force Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (JROTC), Communications and Technology Academy, the Building and Construction Academy, and the soon-to-be realized Welding Program. Extracurricular activities include music, drama, sports, service clubs, and many other student organizations.

Our Mission & Vision


The mission of Rutherford 6-12 School is to meet the diverse needs of all students by providing challenging, rigorous and relevant curriculum in an engaging, caring, and positive learning environment. To this end, all Rutherford staff, in cooperation with parents and community, will challenge all students to act with honesty and integrity as they develop a natural curiosity for the world around them and become productive, responsible, and accountable members of society in pursuit of excellence.


We at Rutherford believe that: All students can learn, achieve and succeed. Students, teachers, and staff are entitled to a safe, clean environment conducive to teaching and learning. Teachers, administrators, parents, students and the community share the responsibility for advancing the school's mission. Offering a challenging, relevant curriculum that involves all students will prepare them to succeed in a global, multicultural society. Maintaining partnerships with parents, community agencies, and local businesses will enhance the total educational experience. Students benefit from a small community of learners and educators committed to professional growth, educational innovation, and technological advancement. All stakeholders are responsible for nurturing an environment of mutual trust and respect. Students who are "at risk" and need support are provided that environment by each teacher in each subject.
