Mattie Rutherford Elementary 2 Jacksonville FL
Mattie V. Rutherford Elementary School, located on the corner of 5th and Hubbard Streets, was one of the first schools in Springfield. It was built in 1912. Named for Mattie V. Rutherford, Principal for many years, the school may have originally been known as the Springfield Elementary School & Springfield Grammar School. Although a century old, Mattie V is in great shape today and is now called the Mattie V. Rutherford Middle School Alternative Education Center. The school provides a short term disciplinary program serving those students who have committed a serious violation of the Code of Student Conduct. Several articles on the web commend the school for this program which has been very successful.
