School History
Due to the extreme overcrowding of the new Joseph Kerr Junior High, James Rutter was organized to open in the fall of 1965, but the new building was not ready until May of 1966. This resulted in the two schools being on double sessions for most of the 1965-66 school year. James Rutter students went to school in the morning, and Joseph Kerr students in the afternoon. The new school was named after James Rutter, a well known Florin fruit grower who was also active in the field of education. Mr. Rutter is credited with having planted the first Flame Tokay grapes in California at his Florin ranch. It is this grape that flourished in the hot and dry valley summers and resulted in the prominence of the Tokay as one of the finest table grapes of California.
